    Travel to the beach city of Phuket: Book a tour with Dook Today

    Phuket boasts of pristine beaches,  world-class cuisine and a plethora of activities and sights which will create memories of a lifetime.

    Understandably travellers make a bee line for one of its sandy beaches on landing in Phuket. While there are plenty of beaches to choose from but the most popular ones are Patong, Laem Singh, Nai han , Ya nui and Nai yang beach. While the beaches are admittedly lovely, however,  your beach holiday should include more than just a  Beach chair and a yellow parasol. Let your hair down and indulge in some dreamy underwater sports. Phuket has several amazing dive spots, and snorkelling in the clear blue waters is a treat for the eyes and for the soul. However, if you don’t fancy going under the sea, then consider Sailing to feel the wind in your hair. A sailing trip to Phang Nga Bay is a rite of passage for travellers visiting the city. If the massive limestone cliffs of the bay look familiar, it’s because they had made a notable appearance in the famous James Bond Movie The Man with the Golden Sun.

    Once you have had your fill of the sea and you are ready to explore the city’s cultural delights, do visit Chinatown. This part of town is home to several markets, temples and museums and you will have a fun few hours exploring this corner of the city.
     
    An important cultural landmark is the towering 45-meter tall statue of Buddha that sits atop the Nakkerd Hill. This location also offers stunning panoramic views of Phuket with the best time to visit is just before the sunset. Another favoured point to get sweeping views of the city is the Toh Sae Hill, popularly called the Monkey hill which is inhabited by the cheekiest monkeys you will ever meet.

    Phuket is also home to an elephant Sanctuary so while in the city take out time to meet the gentle giants too. As much as there is to see and experience in the city, one must sample the local food to truly enjoy their Thai trip. The dishes that come most recommended are Pad Thai, Som Tam and Geng kheaw wan gai.

    To buy souvenirs, tourists mostly head to Phuket weekend market, Chillva Market and Phuket walking street. The souvenirs that you must carry home for friends, family, and your home are Soap flowers, Feng shui arts crafts, silk, pearls, and Batik. An easy buy would be to gift your friends and family Phuket branded shirts which are easily available at Kiosks and shops across the Island.
