Are you hungry to find fun things to do in Phuket Thailand? I know where to look to uncover the most enjoyable, high energy activities on this beautiful island. How ELSE could I have written 98 eBooks in a year unless I enjoyed my time in SE Asia?
I create like a machine to free me, to free you and to have a freaking blast along the way.
Some travel bloggers prefer to tick items on their bucket list through speedy travel. Way cool. Kelli and I prefer to do the slow travel bit because we have fun LIVING in an area. We also re-visit places…again, and again, and again….because….why the heck not?
Fun Things to Do in Phuket Thailand
Phuket is about our fave island on earth. We have visited the ‘Ket 5 times – or more? – during our current 51 month trip around the world. If you love sun, fun, culture, Russians, farang trying to beat the speed of sound on motorbikes, natural beauty and fabulous vegetarian food, Phuket is the place for you.
Let’s chat about a few fun things to do in Phuket, Thailand.
1: Spend the Morning at Nai Harn Beach
Picture this: a calm, serene, horseshoe shaped bay surrounded by swaying palm and coconut trees. Nai Harn Beach is my favorite beach in the world. Kelli and I laze away many a morning beside the beautiful blue waters on the southern tip of Phuket. During high season things get a little hectic on Nai Harn; do a morning trip and you will have the beach to yourself.
Expect bath water like conditions during stretches of calm weather. I felt as if I could lap the Andaman Sea one fine January day, swimming deep into the ocean with zero tidal activity. Still water, no waves. Surreal experience.
2: Eat Lunch at a Buddhist Vegetarian Haunt by the Chalong Circle
We frequent 2 Buddhist veggie restaurants by the Chalong Circle for lunch. Every day. Look for the yellow sign
with Thai writing – you *are* in Thailand, guys – and pull yourself up a chair. Enjoy the spicy or not so spicy dishes. Free water and cucumbers at one restaurant (to relieve a wimpy farang of the spicy cuisine related pain) and at the other spot, ask for a passion fruit juice from the fridge. Amazing!
3: Big Buddha
Big Buddha is da man.
He requires a bit of patience though – shocker – if you want to see him, as one drives for 5 to 10 minutes up steep, winding roads for a gander at the genuinely big Buddha. Our journey was exciting, scary, terrifying, enjoyable and…..enlightening.
Snap some gorgeous shots of Phuket’s West Coast. Do the obligatory tourist photo opp in front of BB. Watch out for monkeys by the bathroom. Seriously.
4: Catch a Flick at Jungceylon
“Jungceylon, Jungceylon, whhhoooaaa Jungceylon!”
We’re weirdos. Kelli and I yell that phrase on arriving to Patong. Although some parts of town remind one of Mos Eisley, Jungceylon Mall is a fun taste of….an area quite unlike Mos Eisley. No scum and villainy here. Unless you count the dirt bag we once saw who walked into a bank, topless. A guy.
Anyway, we catch the latest movies at Jungceylon 2 to 3 times a month. Our 30 minute motorbike ride from Rawai Bay to Patong is breathtaking, with jaw-dropping mountain and ocean views.
