Day 1: Exploring the Island
Even before you arrive on this stunning tropical island, you’ll see what all the fuss is about. Best advice is to see the downtown scene for what it is, get a few trinkets or souvenirs and head out to the real Phuket. The best way to do this is by a morning introduction tour, where an English-speaking guide will tell you all you need to know about your new surroundings. In the evening, be dazzled by the Las Vegas-style Simon Cabaret Show, or combine dinner and a Thai cultural show at FantaSea, where you’ll stare in wonder at the whirling, swirling, vivid display of Thailand's exotic heritage. Oh, and dancing elephants. You’ll love the dancing elephants.
Day 2: Get Active
After your introductory day out and about on the island, it’s time to get out there and get active! Admire Phuket's pristine landscape by way of the world's largest land mammal, the elephant. Elephant tours are a fun and distinctive way to see the jungle scenery, while the Phuket Safari Tour offers you a comprehensive look into regional landscapes and customs such as monkey-training, tree tapping, and Thai cooking lessons. Of course, a vacation in Phuket also means dipping your toe in that gorgeous blue water. Take the plunge on a trekking and rafting adventure, combining whitewater rafting and an elephant trek. Go for a rainforest canoe ride down the Sok River in the island's interior, or explore the mysterious tidal caves of Phang Nga Bay by canoe.
Day 3: The Surrounding Waters
If yesterday's activities weren't enough of a water fill for you, you're in luck. Phuket is surrounded by exquisite groups of islands, all an easy day trip from Phuket. Ride a speedboat to Krabi, famous for its snorkeler's wonderland of limestone caves and white-sand beaches. Some say Koh Phi Phi is the region's most beautiful island group, so put it to the test on a speedboat tour from Phuket. If you'd rather sail more leisurely, ride a ferry to Phi Phi, with free time to swim, snorkel and soak up the sunshine.
