Phuket Views & View Points

Phuket Views & View Points

In Phuket, any hill offers a view point, and, as Shakespeare said, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”... Driving along Phuket's west coast give you opportunities to try out some 'official' viewpoints, or to simply find your own. Splendid views are reachable at many spots, only a short walk through the jungle or the bush from the road.

Patong Nightlife

Patong Nightlife

Patong nightlife is a madhouse: an ever-changing pastiche of the erotic, tragic and melodramatic. Patong – with its beach bars, beer bars and pick-up joints – as well as good dining locations – seems to have everything everyone is looking for.

Phuket Zoo

Phuket Zoo

Phuket Zoo has improved in the last few years, but then again it couldn’t get much worse a while back. The neglected air is gone ad there’s less concrete and more greenery, and it has become a nice place to take the kids on weekends. Phuket Zoo presents three shows twice a day: a monkey show, crocodile show and an elephant show.

Phuket Big Buddha

Phuket Big Buddha

The Big Buddha is the biggest, new attraction in Phuket. This 40-metre-tall statue affords a 270 degrees view over Phuket’s east coast, Chalong Bay, south and southwest Phuket. Entirely covered with marble tiles, this Buddha took almost three years to be built.

Promthep Cape

Promthep Cape

At the southern end of Phuket Island, Promthep Cape must be one of the most photographed places in Phuket, as it is often on the map of tour operators' groups visiting Phuket by bus. Its popularity is not a problem as the stroll to the tip of the cape is not visited by many people even though the path is not really difficult.

Phuket City

Phuket City

Phuket Town officially became Phuket City a few years ago. Its new title is still not used very much by long term residents. Unlike the west coast's resort towns, it is still 'real’ Thailand. Some areas of the city are really interesting, and have many temples and shrines, a pier, viewpoints, many bars and restaurants. If you’re willing to dig a little deeper, Phuket City deserves a visit.

Phuket Aquarium

Phuket Aquarium

A perfect place for a rainy afternoon with the kids; Phuket Aquarium is not astounding but it does offer interesting possibilities to learn more about Southern Thai marine life. It also has varying aquarium shapes, but the best thing about it is the Marine Tunnel. Featuring reef and leopard sharks cruising just inches above your head, it’s downright scary.

Kathu Waterfall

Kathu Waterfall is maybe a misdemeanor, from the word go; it’s not impressive in size but it does gives you the chance to experience a mini-rainforest. Kathu Waterfall’s a little microcosm of southern Thailand’s rainforests.

Kathu Mining Museum

Kathu Mining Museum, opened in August 2009 is a very informative cultural and historical attractions in Phuket. Visit with a guide (or someone who has a certain level of knowledge about Phuket history) is recommended as, for now, most of the signs and descriptions are only available in Thai.
