Phuket attracts tourists not only because of its white sand beaches, but also because of its multi-cultural attractions, scrumptious cuisine and sacred Buddhist temples.

For a hassle-free city tour and to save money on transportation, we booked a tour package which includes a lunch buffet. The first part of the tour is a visit to some souvenir shops. We visited a t-shirt factory where you can buy shirts at a much cheaper price and some snack shops.

The first tourist attraction we visited is the Wat Chalong Temple.

Chalong Temple


This is a big place with several different temples. Tourists are welcome but respect should always be observed. Noise should be kept at a minimum and a dress code should be followed when entering the temple (no bare shoulders and knees must be covered). Shoes are also never allowed inside the temple.


Phuket Aquarium

Phuket Aquarium has thousands of exotic fish, corals and other marine creatures. The main attraction is a large tank with a tunnel through its center although the tunnel is only few meters long. In the tunnel, you'll be surrounded by a swarm of groupers, sharks, turtles and more.






Karon Viewpoint



Karon Viewpoint is a destination for picturesque views of the three beaches Kata Noi, Kata & Karon, the ocean and lush island surroundings.

Old Phuket Town

Phuket Old Town is the historical center of Phuket City. It has beautifully preserved shop-houses built in Sino-colonial architecture. It has many cafes, coffee shops, bars boutiques and souvenir shops  making it a very lively place to hang out.


What I like about Phuket is it's lively and peaceful at the same time. Delicious and affordable Thai food are also almost in every corner of Phuket.
