5 Things to Do and Visit in Phuket

These 5 places to visit in Phuket are definitely not the only places/things to see in Phuket. They just make up some of what we managed in out short and sweet trip to Phuket - made even sweeter by our tour guide Ellie.

Fantasea, Phuket
- This is a MUST MUST watch show - showing the history of Thailan with some incredible dramatics, theatre, amazing acrobatics, magic, etc. Watch out for the moment when all the livestock run across the stage! The fairground (the setting for the show) and its atmosphere make it really a 2-in-1 outing.

Phi Phi Islands - The coves, the emerald water, the snorkeling experience - wow. Includes the pristine beaches including the famous Maya Beach where the Leonardo di Caprio starrer, The Beach, was shot. Our trip included an additional attraction(???) of a hair raising speed boat ride! The trip is definitely not to be missed even if you can do without the speed boat ride...

Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island - James Bond island was made famous in the movie "The Man With The Golden Gun". The famous table top island forms a must backdrop for "I visted Phuket" snaps. The trip to James Bond Island is through the Phang Nga Bay. There was a stop to explore the rock formations and the mangrove islands by a canoe (thankfully steered by local experts). The stop at a floating Moslem fishing village for lunch completed the amazing day.
