What to do in Phuket

Watch Thai kickboxing at Patong Boxing Stadium

You'll find that when it comes to the national sport of Muay Thai, the noise and goings on in the stadium outside the ring are just as entertaining as what is going on inside it. Held on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, fights begin at 9pm and carry on late into the night.

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.

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.

The Book Cafe Rawai (Cafe)

Perfect for bookworms, this relaxed cafe has stacks of second-hand tomes. But what keeps people coming back over and over again is the brilliant food, especially at breakfast. The kale with scrambled eggs, washed down with an iced cinnamon latte, is the perfect way to start the day.
