Holiday In Phuket

What’s that sound? It’s a tropical breeze rustling through palm trees, and the Andaman Sea as it crashes against the shoreline. Oh, who are we kidding? It’s the sound of your annual leave, begging you to drop what you’re doing and spend some well-deserved time posted up in a beachfront pub, a colourful drink lodged firmly in your hand. From shredding some gnar on Hat Patong to getting in touch with your spiritual side at Wat Chalong, lastminute.com.au’s Phuket holidays have something for every traveller. Things to Do in Phuket

Once you find yourself on this jungle-covered land in the Andaman Sea, strip off those trousers and throw on your best pair of togs for a surfing lesson on Hat Patong. Hang five, ten or just cruise on the gentle rolling swells, which are perfect for beginners. Look into Phuket deals through hotels for the best pricing on lessons. Keep the water adventure going by taking a canoe tour of Phang Nga Bay. The limestone islets in the bay look like the Hallelujah Mountains from the movie Avatar. For easy travel between the temples, look into lastminute.com.au Phuket car rental options.

When you get back to Phuket town, pay a visit to one of the 29 Buddhist temples. The most famous and important one is Wat Chalong, located in the Chalong Subdistrict. You’ve got to see the Grand Pagoda, where a splinter of bone from the great Lord Buddha is held. When you’re enjoying a Thailand holiday , do as the Thai do and respect the local customs. Removing your shoes and not wearing clothing that reveals your shoulders and legs is customary when entering a Wat. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

The best shopping options during your getaway will be found in Old Phuket Town on Yaowarat Road. Spend some bahts on Buddha image heads, Chinese and Japanese silk gowns and an array of painted wooden ornaments. There’s usually set prices attached to these souvenirs, but test out your bargaining skills with the local shopkeepers.

Are you ready for your mouth to start watering? There’s few holiday destinations that offer the quality of street food that Phuket does. First, try the moo ping and khao niao, a dish of grilled pork on skewers with sticky rice. Next, get your hands on roti. Also called “Thai pancakes”, sweet flatbread is fried crisp and rolled in butter, powdered sugar and condensed milk. Don’t forget to get a side of chocolate sauce to go along with your roti.

Everyone knows about the legendary nightlife in Bangkok, and Phuket is no different. Walk down Bangla Road and take your pick from any number of nightclubs and bars. Make your way to Soi Seadragon and check out a go-go show with girls who appear to have clothes on…but no one really knows. To offset the booze, go to Soi Patong for some late night snacks that will hopefully help your hangover. Take note of where the best night spots are when you’re booking your Phuket holiday package if you want to be near all the action. What’s Next

What’s next for you? Is that a serious question? What’s next is you need to get off the couch and go somewhere to get lost—and Phuket holiday packages are where to start. Browse lastminute.com.au’s Phuket holiday deals and put in your leave request from your job immediately.
