Activities in Phuket : Tours, Sports and Fun

Jun 2, 2008
You will get the chance to meet the local forest workers, understand the environment and explore local plants you never knew existed in this unaltered environment. This unique tour enables you to dig deep into the interior of Phuket without the crowds. Small groups and complete instruction and helmet are provided in this package.

Phuket eco tours in Khao Sok & Khao Lak are also a viable option. Situated in the mainland province of Phang Nga just north of Phuket Island, Khao Lak has only recently been "uncovered." The area, visited by only a few tourists, spreads across three national parks and offers nature lovers an unadulterated tropical landscape of beaches, hills, mountains, forested valleys, mangroves and estuaries. You can go for a trek on an elephant, float down the river on a bamboo raft, walk through the forest and get face to face with nature in this magical place.

Phuket tours also include visiting Phi Phi before the crowd - with the wind in your hair and the excitement of traveling by speedboat. You will get the chance to go island hopping. Get amazed by Ao Ling (Monkey Bay) on Koh Phi Phi Don, then can indulge in snorkelling at the famous Hin Klang and relax or swim in Koh Mai Pai (Bamboo Island) before reaching Koh Phi Phi Don for a great lunch. Enjoy the rest of day at Phi Phi Leh, visiting Maya Bay - site for the Hollywood film: The Beach - and snorkeling in some of the most pristine water on the planet.

There is an abundance of sports activities available for you in Phuket. The strange and compelling limestone scenery of Phang Nga has numerous tiny islands, many uninhabited, which is home to hidden caves, tunnels and interior lagoons - known locally as "hongs." Looking into the interiors of the area by sea canoe/kayak is a safe and peaceful way to witness this fascinating world, with minimum damage to the natural habitat.

With a wealth of colorful marine life, warm waters and easy access, Phuket and its nearby islands are perfectly suited for snorkeling. Swim among parrotfish, clownfish, needlefish, damselfish and surgeonfish, and you may even watch an octopus or two peeking out from beneath a rock.

Surfing is another of those thrilling water sports available to you in Phuket. During Phuket's monsoon season (May-October), the normally calm sea churns up enough to give surfers and boogie boarders a splendid ride. Golf is yet another widely accepted sports activities in Phuket. Phuket boasts of four fine golf courses, all of which have been designed to efficiently utilize the island's tropical trees and abundant water.

The choices offered for making fun is in no way limited. Phuket offroad fun park and the various kinds of amusement parks are among those unlimited options. In summary, the diverse tours, sports and fun activities offered to you will make you feel aplenty.
