Too busy a tourist town. Lovely beach but this time of year just a sea of people.

About Phuket, Thailand

Set like a jewel in the Andaman Sea, Thailand's largest island has great expanses of sandy beaches that lure sun-seekers to their shores, and a unique culture combining influences from China and Portugal. Visit the fabled monastery of Wat Chalong, the Orchard Garden and the Thai Village, where examples of the country's culture are presented in a tranquil lakeside setting.

My family booked to go to the elephant sanctuary and it was a memory worth creating! It was incredible. The guide was very informative and funny. And at the elephant sanctuary we fed the elephants and photos were taken by the staff which I might at you did not have to pay for. All photos were put on their site and everyone was given the link to upload and print out. Then we bathed with the elephant in the mud and the washed them off. We were given free souvenirs and a beautiful meal. This was and incredible excursion and was worth every $.

it was opposite side of Patong beach and took 1h drive. but we were not informed where we left. there is nothing around the port, just huge number of taxi drivers calling ridiculous prices...

A long and bumpy bus ride from cruise port. Boat ride through scenic karst formations and small islands is worthwhile. Visit to “floating” village, with its homes, schools, and mosque was too rushed. If you also visit Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, you don’t need to visit here.


Phuket is a great place well worth having a look lots to do from driving to just going for a ride in a taxi the shoppi ng was fun and there where plenty of good food outlets


no port but efficient tendering (15-20mins trip) takes you to ok beach and prom but plenty of taxis to take you to interesting tourist sites and better beaches -lots to do

Most of the time, the cruise will tender at patong beach, however, during the latest cruise in Sept 2017, we were dumped at panwa beach where there was practically nothing to explore. Ended up having to take local cab at expensive cost to the shopping centre near patong beach.


Tendering was to a remote port. A long trip was nothing at the port. On the other side of the island is a short, interesting tendering opportunity.
