1. Phang Nga Bay
Exploring Phang Nga Bay must be on the top list of things to do in Phu Ket. With the distinctive setting of sheer limestone karst emerging out of emerald, Phang Nga Bay will leave you with unforgettable memories. s in Phang Nga Bay is James Bond Island and Koh Panyee. The best way to enjoy the spectacular scenery is to take a boat trip from the northern end of Phuket, with only brief encounters with the tourist crowds at James Bond and Koh Panyee, the most famous spots in Phang Nga Bay
A leisurely day trip cruising through the dramatic limestone islands, occasionally stopping to enjoy quiet beaches, is far more rewarding than the standard bus-boat tour.
2. Old Phuket Town
A half day tour the Old Phuket Town offers you a chance to wander on
the old Sino Portuguese streets with their beautiful shop houses and magnificent mansions. You can find a lot of small cafes, bakeries and eateries along the way. You should take a visit to the local markets near the bus station and explore the tiny streets here. There are also several beautiful and incredible abandoned houses/ buildings to explore, like Phra Pitak Chinpracha Mansion, Limpanon House, Dibuk Mansion, Thai Airways Offices, or Raya House.
3. Prompthep Cape Viewpoint
Situated at the southernmost point of Phuket island, Prompthep Cape Viewpoint is the best place to take sunset photo in Thailand. With its elevated location and few small islands nearby, Promthep Cape offers you a best
Promthep Cape cape is Phuket's symbol and you will recognize its tall sugar palms on car plates having a special number. In case you didn't know, you can buy a special 'lucky' number and your plate will be decorated with the symbol of the province.
4. Karon Viewpoint

5. Big Buddha
The Big Buddha is a 45 meter tall white marble statue visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket and the views from up there are definitely breathtaking.

7. Soi Bangla
Everyone should see it at least once. And unlike what most people believe, Soi Bangla is not 'Sin City for Single Men'. It's more of a colorful street full of life, restaurants, shops and bars and of course girls. Now if you want to know more, enter these famous Go Go bars and see for yourself what is this all about. You will often see couples tourists having a drink...Patong is a lot more easy going than Bangkok or Pattaya.
8. Visit Similan Island or at least one island
The most impressive set of Island is without a doubt the Similan Island, but these are open at certain time of the year and a bit far. If you get a chance, you must absolutely go. If you are not confident, go to Phi Phi Island, but it's kind of crowded. Easier and closer are Racha Island or really nearby Coral Island. Read more...
9. Phuket Fantasea
It took me a long time before stepping onto the huge grounds of this 'entertainment park' in Kamala Beach. It's bright and colorful, full of shops and fun fair games, but the main attraction is the stage performance given by Thai actors, dancers and acrobats accompanied by their dozen massive elephants.

10. Simon Cabaret
Another Las Vegas kind of show, but of a totally different nature. Here too, the stage in Patong beach is magnificent, the sets and costumes are glittering and colorful, but what people really came to see are the amazingly pretty ladyboys! Perfect bodies with pretty faces, most of them would fool you! Read more...
11. Rang Hill
A beautiful viewpoint set above Phuket town. Great by day and by night with the city lights. If you happen to go there, by car and bike, stay for lunch or dinner at the beautiful and excellent Tungka Cafe or Phuket View Restaurant on the other side of the hill. Read more...
12. Koh Panyee
A small fishermen village built entirely on stilts in the middle of Phang Nga Bay. Take a longtail boat early to reach there before tourists arrive and you get a complete different feel for the place. Continue to the James Bond Island if you feel like seeing the shooting set of this antique movie 'The man with the golden gun'. Read more...
