Phuket is an amazing island in the Andaman sea, blessed with beaches and landscapes out of this world. Our blog shares 25 years of passionate island exploration and photography. Discover with us the last hidden beaches and some amazing islands like Phi Phi island and the Similan. We help you planning your first or next trip to Phuket with all the best things to do in Phuket, but also many hidden gems off the beaten track! Try the amazing local food in local Thai restaurants and even some street food. Explore the many night markets and Phuket legendary nightlife: beach clubs, rooftops and where to party in the famous Bangla Road in Patong Beach.
Travellers from all around the world come to enjoy our amazing white beaches and legendary turquoise blue water. There are more than 40 beaches here, and despite the belief that Phuket is crowded, most are hidden and peaceful. Beaches in the south range from busy to packed, while those in the north are superb and untouched.
Nightlife has always been legendary here, but while Patong is still home to a lot of bars and go-go clubs, the island has now a lot to offer to families and couples. There are many beach clubs, rooftop bars and international night clubs to enjoy, from sunset until very late at night.
Phuket shopping scene is vast and fun. With so many night markets, anyone can find something to have fun. Most markets sell cheap copies of famous brands and clothing, but Chillva market and the Sunday Walking Street Market in Phuket Town are a lot more creative and original. For something more sophisticated, there are now three huge shopping malls to explore: Jungceylon And Central in Patong and Central Festival in Phuket town. Street shopping is also everywhere.
What and Where to Eat
If great food is important to you, you certainly will have a blast in Thailand. There is so much to enjoy everywhere, from the cheapest street food to the Michelin restaurants. You can enjoy a great dish by the road for just 50 baht or have a fancy dinner with a sunset on a romantic terrace. Just remember that food in Patong is a lot toned down compared to what Thai food usually tastes.
