The Old Town in Phuket is the nicest place to stay. The cosy historic centre attracts many travellers every year.

This is the place to be for the real local experience, for example, you can eat delicious food there. It is one of the nicest markets held on Phuket, every Sunday from 4pm.

Planning to visit the Wat Chalong? See our information below!


Like everywhere else in Thailand, you are also bound to come across beautiful temples in Phuket. Of the total 30 temples, Wat Chalong is the most beautiful and special. The shrine is dedicated to Luang Pho Chaem (1827-1908) and Luang Pho Chuang (1875-1945). These former herbalists healed many sick people at the time, leading many people to believe they possessed supernatural powers. Here, at Wat Chalong, people gather to worship the two monks. This religious site is about a 20-minute drive from Phuket Town.  

The beautiful Wat Chalong is gold-trimmed on the outside and very impressive. Especially if you go there in the evening as the temple is beautifully illuminated. The temple consists of three floors with a rooftop terrace, where you have a beautiful view of the surroundings, the adjacent lake and the giant Buddha. Inside the temple, you will see all kinds of beautiful murals and statues made of gold leaf. Ceremonies are regularly held here, so ask your hotel in advance if there is anything to do at the temple.

๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ Bangla Street

Bangla Street, Phuket

Planning to visit Bangla Street? See our information below!


Bangla Street in Phuket is the street when it comes to stepping out! Bangla Road is the ‘strip’ to be on after the sun has set. Flickering neon lights, colourful signs, loud music and sexy girls luring tourists in with discount coupons. Consequently, you won’t get through the street without facing a ping-pong show menu card.

Over a length of four kilometres, you will find plenty of bars, pubs, nightclubs, Go-Go bars and restaurants. The possibilities are endless. You can go dancing in a disco, watch a boxing match, go to a Go-Go bar or nightclub, or something really special: watch an extravagant show with the most beautiful ladyboys. If you are not into the crowds and want to avoid the frenzy a bit, head to Soi Gonzo, the Aussie Bar or the semi-chic White Room Nightclub.

Just keep in mind that this is not a place for young children. There are a lot of women and lady-boys, walking around. If you’ve never seen this before, a world will open up for you. And if you are unlucky or just lucky a little more!

๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ Big Buddha

Big Buddha, Phuket

Planning to visit the Big Buddha? See our information below!


The absolute attraction on Phuket is the colossal white Buddha. The imposing statue is made entirely of marble, and at 45 metres tall is the third largest statue in all of Thailand. Construction of this magnificent Buddha began back in 2004, yet it is still under scaffolding. It is unknown when the Buddha will be fully completed and the scaffolding will go away. ย 

However, it is not just the Buddha that makes the mountain worth visiting. Via about 100 steps, you reach the top and are rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the entire island of Phuket and the other islands off the coast. On the way back, don’t forget to stop for a drink or snack at one of the viewpoint restaurants found along the way.

The Big Buddha is very important to locals. Therefore, behave and dress respectfully towards the locals. Do not climb the statue and wear appropriate clothing and therefore no bikini, swimsuit, tank top and flip-flops. Wear long clothes or bring a sarong!

After visiting the Big Buddha, still time to spare ? You can easily combine the Big Buddha and the Chalong temple. They are about 8 kilometres apart.
