What to see

360° Bar - Dinner

This November (2017) we visited this place for the second time. It is not easy to find the right entrance, but it is certainly worth trying. This beautiful bar-terrace-dining-place is located on a unique spot, just 10 minutes away from our house. It is on the top of a hill and therefor you have a spectular view. If it is not too cloudy you can watch a fenomenal sunset. It is a great experience to sit here in a comfortable seat, drink a nice cocktail, enjoying fine tapas and if you want have your dinner and being all the time in this great ambiance!

Reservation might be a must!

Surin Beach:

To visit this beach you only need a 15 minute drive. On the 7th of November 2017, we spent 3 hours here in the afternoon.
This beach is about 700 meters wide, beautiful white sand and a gorgeous surrounding of hills, full of nature. It is convenient for young children, because they can walk a long way into the water before it gets too deep.The seawater was almost warm.
It is also very easy to park your car or scooter and just some meters from the beach there are many little food shops.
You can watch a beautiful sunset.
This location belongs certainly to one of the "must see".

Viewpoints:

The hilly Phuket guarantees incredible beautiful views. Be sure to go by the Windmill Viewpoint, Karon Viewpoint and the Promthep Cape. Here you can also watch a wonderful sunset. Although you certainly would not be the only person here, it is very wirth the effort.

Phuket City:

The bustling administrative center of Phuket is often overlooked in favor of the beaches. But there is a lot to see and do in Phuket City. Having been recently upgraded to city status, Phuket City features an exciting mix of old and new, simple and sophisticated, peaceful and pulsating.The activity in Phuket City is nearly around-the-clock. In the early morning stoic monks take to the streets on their daily alms round and the fresh market buzzes with restaurant owners buying ingredients for the day’s meals. Non-stop bustle characterizes the daytime and lasts well into the evening. Nights are reserved for enjoying good company, whether at a restaurant, a disco, a quiet bar, or a combination of all three

 

Animal sanctuary:

Visit the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project by the beautiful Bang Pae Waterfall. They have a visitor center manned by Western volunteers and English speaking Thai staff. Talks are free, but please support the project by buying a souvenir, sponsoring a gibbon or giving a donation. 

Phuket Vegetarian Festival:

Phuket has some amazing cultural shows that are definitely worth seeing or you maybe lucky enough to be in Phuket for the Phuket Vegetarian Festival. The 9-day event does not have a fixed date on the calendar, but is around late September to mid-October. Ceremonies are centered around the six Chinese temples that are scattered across the Island. The main temple is the Jui Tui Shrine located in Phuket City. At each of the temples you can buy the most amazing vegetarian food. Daily street processions are held, where you can watch men and women puncture their checks with various items such as knives and skewers.

 

  

Thai Kick-Boxing:

Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.

The professional league is governed by The Professional Boxing Association of Thailand (P.A.T) sanctioned by The Sport Authority of Thailand (S.A.T.), and World Muaythai Federation (WMF) overseas.

Waterfalls:

The three best-known waterfalls in Phuket are Bang Pae, Ton Sai and Kathu Waterfall. A lesser-known one is just by Ao Yon Noi Beach, near Cape Panwa. Bang Pae and Ton Sai waterfalls are located in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park in the east of Phuket. The park itself is the last vestige of virgin tropical forest on the island and is home to many exotic animals such as barking deer and various types of monkeys as well as many tropical birds.

Great White Buddha:

Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the island's most important and revered landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata. As it is 45 meteres tall, it is easily seen from far away. The lofty site offers the best 360-degree views of the island, with sweeping vistas of Phuket City, Kata, Karon beaches, Chalong Bay and more.) Easily reachable via a six-kilometer road leading from Phuket's main artery route, it is a must-visit island destination.

Spotting planes:

Standing on Mai Khao Beach you see the planes just some small distance above your head. A great experience for adults and kids.

Wat Chalong:

The most beautiful Temple buildings of Phuket. In the morning it is an oasis of tranquillity, in the afternoon it might get crowded.
