Ever heard of Phuket? It’s Thailand’s largest island. It’s known for its blue waters, sandy beaches, spicy Thai cuisine, snorkeling, and diving. Tourists go to Phuket for relaxation and adventure because of its exceptionally warm and sunny days. It is so easy to access the island because it is a one-hour flight from Bangkok. According to my friend at Team Clean llc, Here are the four awesome places you can travel in Phuket Island:
- Kata Beach
Kata beach is home to palms and casuarina’s trees which makes the beach lovely as they are sandwiched with a curving bay and lush hillsides. One thing about Kata beach is that it’s more peaceful and lively unlike Patong Beach. Most importantly, it has less hawkers.
Kata beach is broad and has soft white sand beaches. If you love snorkeling, you will find an excellent spot near the end. One the beach you will find several beachfront stalls and large restaurants selling papaya shake, snakes, and other Phuket cuisine.
Besides that, you will also find a luxury boutique hotel which is The Boathouse Phuket. The hotel sits on the resorts and it is a nice place to rest. A more quiet place to visit is the Kata Noi beach which is south of the Kata beach.
- Phuket Town
You will find this town at the Southeastern coast of the island. There are lots of activities you can indulge in this town thanks to the many restaurants, hotels, massage parlours, and other attractions.
The architecture of the town reflect the make of Chinese immigrants who resided there and Portugues aesthetic. The artistry is quite different from the more traditional Thai lifestyle. If you stroll this old town, you will find Portuguese mansions, temples, and shrines. Things that you can do in this town include visiting Phuket Trickeye Museum, sampling street food, and visiting the colorful Chinese temple.
- Island Boat Tours
Have you ever wanted to lounge on the beach throughout the day? Most people want to do that. There’s no better way to experience that feeling than visiting the Island Boat Tours. Best of all, you can sign up for an island tour to explore the stunning seascape around Phuket.
Interesting places to visit include Maphrao, Nakhai Noi, Nakha Yai, Koh Kaeo, Racha Noi, and Racha Yai. If you want to get the best out of this island, organized tours are the way to go because you will see everything. For instance, if you book a nine-hour guided day trip, you will visit unique places like the “James Bond Rocks” and the famous Maya Beach. With any guided tour in the region you will get transportation, food, and refreshments.
- Diving & Snorkeling
Phuket is also known for diving and snorkelling. It has beautiful waters and excellent conditions. Water temperatures range between 26 to 30 degrees Celsius. The water is a hub for tropical fish, seahorses, sea turtles, manta rays, and over beautiful sea creatures. If you don’t know anything about scuba diving you can start scuba diving training because it’s more affordable. At the end of the training, you will receive a scuba diving certification.…
