What to do in Phuket

Conquer the deep with Phuket Scuba Club

There are lots of dive companies to choose from – try the excellent Phuket Scuba Club, who provide all the equipment you need, and offer beach dives, day trips and even ‘live aboard’ boat breaks.

See performances at Phuket FantaSea

Things don’t get more surreal than Phuket Fantasea, a show based in a small theme park where a loose storyline is used to showcase performances ranging from acrobats to elephants. There are side-shows and games as well as a surprisingly good buffet, especially if you get there before the crowds.

Explore Phang Nga Bay

If it’s good enough for James Bond it must be worth a visit! Phang Nga Bay, which featured in the movie The Man with the Golden Gun, is an impressive sight, with sheer limestone formations and emerald waters. Jump on a day cruise boat, hunt out the secluded beaches and get a unique perspective on the famous rocky outcrops. Contact Phuket Tours for information.

Watch Thai kickboxing at Patong Boxing Stadium
