Phuket is a beautiful haven for honeymooners and couples who just want to spend quality time with each other. This paradise in Southeast Asia features stunning beaches, exotic islands, and delectable Thai dishes. You can even catch a glimpse of Muay Thai and ride at the back of gentle elephants. The energetic parties at night will cap off a great day of travel. If you’re visiting Phuket with your significant other, here are five experiences that will make your stay in this Thai island worthwhile.
1. Canoeing through the great unknown
The cave’s low ceiling forces you to lay flat on your back to pass through. You may even have to turn your head sideways to clear your nose from the rocks. While it may be uncomfortable at first, you’ll experience a serene lagoon and leafless mangroves once you get through. Canoeing trips in Phuket will set you back as little as 1,817 Baht or $46.
2. One-hour foot massage
Don’t let this opportunity pass, especially that a 60-minute foot massage in the US costs $60. You can get the same service in Phuket for just 250 Baht or $4.50! Saving your money for a soothing massage is not an option here because of the cost-friendly service. Get a daily massage after a long day of touring and repeat it while you’re in Phuket. If you have enough time to spare, why not squeeze in two massage sessions in a day? That sense of calm takes away your stress to help you get a restful sleep.
3. Channel your inner 007
Locally known as Khao Phing Kan, this piece of land in Phang Nga Bay is what the villain Francisco Scaramanga called home in the 1974 James Bond movie “The Man with The Golden Gun.” Its part in this film is the reason tourists call this location the James Bond Island. Continue the fun and hop to other places such as Phi Phi, Koh Yao, Coral, and Similan islands.
4. Enjoy the night party
The New Year’s Eve party at Patong Beach rivals the celebrations in Bali, Indonesia, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dance until you drop to reggae and house music while drinking inexpensive alcohol and making new friends from various countries. If dancing is not your thing, you can stay on the sides and enjoy the music or release lanterns into the sky. Be sure to watch the captivating fireworks display to cap off the fun-filled evening.
If you won’t be there on New Year’s, don’t fret—there are Full Moon parties every month!
5. Swim at the paradise where Leonardo DiCaprio took a dip
The Phi Phi Islands became one of the must-visit tourist attractions in Southern Thailand when it became a location in the 2000 movie “The Beach,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The islands feature enchanting cliffs that border the beach-fronted jungle. The site mightily takes its spot in the sea like a fortress, and you will be mesmerized you the moment you set foot on this haven.
