For the first timer in Phuket, it’s a lot to absorb in a short span of time so here’s a quick guide to exploring Phuket and discover the wonders the city has to reveal to you.
Phuket is best known for its jaw-dropping beaches and breathtaking scenery. Travelers are recommended to head over to PhangNga Bay and explore the vast beauty of the bay. For the adventurous tourist, there’s boating and kayaking activities available. The bay is best known for its majestic cliffs and ‘Hong’ or ‘rooms’ with closed ecosystems hidden in caves. If you’re not afraid of canoeing through tight spaces or the sea itself, this is a great place to paddle, even if you’re a beginner.
If you’ve had your fair share under the sizzling hot sunof PhangNga Bay, why not head over to Phuket Town? Phuket Town, as expected is a town that caters directly to tourists. Of course, you’d expect to find a handful of souvenirs and knock-off goods but, sometimes it’s more than just the material things the town is known for. Phuket is known for its colorful night shows, perfectly executed by talented entertainers. You’re not living the highlight of Phuket unless you head over to the spectacular musical show featuring Phuket’s world-famous ladyboys: The Simon Cabaret. Beautiful, talented and downright astounding, this show is surely one of the main attractions in the city. The sights and of course, the spectacular sounds allow all their shows to come to life! Don’t be afraid to bring the little ones (of course, not too little) to enjoy the show.
If shows like this are too hyped up for your tastes, there’s the Siam Niramit Phuket extravaganza. What is it? This is a 70-minute show showcasing Thailand’s cultural heritage in the form of traditional songs and dances. The dancers will perform well-known Thai classics on stage with an ensemble of talented individuals and bring to life Thailand’s myths and legends. It’s truly a stunning performance that earned the group multiple awards over the years as being one of the most dynamic and professionally done shows to date. The Siam Nidramit Phuket is a show that shouldn’t be missed!
