The ever growing list of activities on Phuket continues to draw visitors from all over the world. While some come for the bargain shopping, bustling nightlife and fast paced adventure activities, others prefer to simply relax in the warm tropical climate. There is also no shortage of activities to keep the kids entertained.
The beautiful beaches of Phuket offer a range of water sports such as parasailing, banana boat rides, snorkelling, Jet Ski Hire and much more. The main tourist beaches such as Patong Beach, Kata and Karon in the Islands south west are well established destinations and as such, can get a little crowded.
In addition to the golden beaches there are also many other places to visit such as Phuket Butterfly Farm, boasting of a vivid range of butterflies and other insects; Phuket Aquarium, with some rare species of fishes; Phuket Zoo, where monkey, elephant and crocodile shows are conducted; wats including Wat Kun Chi, Wat Chalong and Phuket Town Shrine; and Thalang National Museum for unique artifacts.
The Phuket night life is often a highlight for many visitors. There are many beach front bars and restaurants whose comfortable settings are perfect for watching the sun set and parting into the night. Bangla Rd is a popular after dark destination thanks to the many Go Go bars and Clubs that come alive with bar girls and the infamous Thai Lady Boys.
