Overview Of The Port Of Phuket

About Phuket
Phuket is a city located in the southeast of Phuket Island, Thailand in south east Asia. It is the capital of the Phuket Province, covering all of the island.

Most visitors head to the beaches. Patong Beach is the busiest and most popular beach in Phuket.
Karon Beach is a quieter option, south from Patong.

James Bond Island - tours are offered which usually stop at the Muslim fishing village.

Ko Phi Phi - There are two main islands with the smaller one the setting for the movie "The Beach".

Jet boat tours are usually offered from Patong.

The Marine Research Centre and Aquarium showcases Phuket's marine life and environment.

To learn about Phuket's tin industry, history and culture, head to the Thalang National Museum.

A large variety of animals live in the natural habitat at Khao Phra Thaeo Wildlife Park, around 16 miles from Phuket Town.

If you fancy island hopping, negotiate a trip on a longtail boat. Be warned, the ride can be quite bumpy!

Boutiques and markets centre around Times Square Mall. The Native Handicraft centre offers a good range of local crafts and the Wang Thalong shopping complex gives even more opportunity to spend. Good buys include Thai silk and pearls.

Popular dishes include 'kway tio' (noodle soup), 'pad thai goong (Thai fried rice noodles with prawns), 'pad see iew' (noodles in soy sauce) and 'kao pad' (fried rice with a choice of meat or seafood). A must try while you’re in Phuket is 'kao niow with gai yang' (sticky rice with barbecued chicken).
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships either anchor and tender to a jetty in Patong (this not possible between May-Oct) or dock at Ao Makham Deep Sea Port approximately 5 miles south of Phuket Town.

There is sometimes a market set up at the deep sea port.

Shuttle buses may be provided at Ao Makam, otherwise you will need to negotiate with a taxi driver.

It's best to avoid using the mini truck tuk-tuks as they will either overcharge or scam you.
