You can visit Phuket and enjoy other things aside from its long stretch of sand and crystal clear waters. Here are some suggestions:
1. Phuket FantaSea
Phuket FantaSea is a Thai cultural theme park, the first of its kind in the world. It is an entertainment park with lots of activities centered on Thai culture and tradition. You can also find elaborate shows with elephants, animal exhibits, and shopping.
2. Phuket Elephant Sanctuary
Your visit to Thailand will not be complete without seeing or interacting with the elephants. This animal is one of the country’s symbol.

You can see the elephants up close and interact with them.

If you more on the adventurous side, trekking will be perfect for you when you go to Phuket. The island has several waterfalls for you to visit. Bang Pae, Ton Sai, and Kathu are the three most popular waterfalls on the island. Some may be difficult to trek, but that’s why it becomes more adventurous.
4. Water rafting and ATV
Aside from the waterfalls and animal sanctuaries, you can explore the jungle by doing water rafting and riding an ATV. These activities can satisfy your adventure cravings and make you see and appreciate Phuket’s amazing scenery and wildlife.
