This postcard-perfect island has been famously featured in Hollywood blockbuster movies. Miles of pristine white beaches, incredible diving spots and friendly sea turtles beckon.
Stunning turquoise waters
Island-hop to explore Phuket’s many beautiful islands. Stop by Phi Phi Islands, where the movie “The Beach” was filmed. Khao Phing Kan has limestone karsts jutting from the stunning turquoise waters and is best known as “James Bond Island” after being featured in the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
Koh Hae, also known as “Coral Island”, has colourful coral reefs for snorkelling, or try your luck dolphin-spotting off Koh Kaew Island.
Thai Cooking Class
Thai cuisine is distinctive for lightly-prepared dishes featuring sour, sweet, salty and spicy flavours. Why not learn the principles of basic Thai cooking while on holiday? Cooking classes usually include a trip to the local morning market to buy the fresh produce. Cook up a feast and indulge in your masterpiece. Your new repertory may consist of: pad thai (fried noodle), khao pad (fried rice), kaeng khiao wan (green curry), tom yam (spicy soup) and some khaoniao mamuang (mango sticky rice) for dessert.
Families can enjoy exciting activities together in the central Phuket. Kathu waterfall is popular during the monsoon months (June – November). Ten minutes away is the Jungle Bungy Jump – a 50 metre tall jump into a natural lagoon surrounded by dense jungle trees. Alternatively, try zip-lining through beautiful jungle scenery at the Flying Hanuman for a pure adrenaline rush.
