10 Really Cheap Things to Do in Phuket (For Fun!)
|Sleep at On On Hotel (was 150, now 450 Baht)
Internationally known from the movie 'The Beach', this cheap hotel does actually looks like what you saw in the movie. Very well located in the historical streets of Phuket Town, it could have taken advantage of its fame, but no, it's still looking as cheap. The On On hotel was renovated in 2013 so I guess I have to find something new to add here... but it's still a good value! See more photos.
|Get a Local Haircut (70 Baht)
Knowing the price of a haircut in Phuket in general, here is one of the cheapest hair salon in town... for only 70 baht you too can look like a school boy! Surprisingly they will even shave your ears and your forehead, I tried. (now if you are looking for a proper haircut, head to Central Festival Phuket)
|Second Hand Shoe Shop!
(Price is up to your bargain skills)
We talked about this one on Phuket Week End Market. I don't personally know anyone who bought shoes from a second hand shoe shop. Please do send us your story if you did! If you got your shoes stolen once, you might find them here.
|Fitness at the Park or at Tesco Lotus (Free)
You can join the aerobic class at Tesco Lotus or even in front of The Bangkok Phuket Hospital every day at 6 pm for free, or use the new set of free fitness equipment at Suan Luang Park on Chaofa road, just outside Phuket town on the way to Chalong.
|Shop at 'SuperCheap' (cheap! :D)
After serious price investigation, this is the cheapest possible shop in town. Even shops shop here! And it is also about how you can get lost in their amazing maze of everything you need for your daily life or local business. An experience in itself. Note that SuperCheap was burnt down and is currently being rebuilt (Read all about Super Cheap)
|Party Cheap with a Bucket (150 baht)
A fun way to have party and no memory of it the next day is the famous 'Bucket'. For only 150 baht, you can get drunk and wake up the next day in the situation of the movie 'the Hangover', with a major headache as bonus. Made of 'Mekong' or 'Sang Som', two popular Thai whiskies, mixed with 'Red Bull', soda or basically anything you can think about and lots of ice. Very popular and often advertised at bars in Soi Bangla !
