ARCHITECTURAL WONDERS AT OLD TOWN PHUKET
The beginning of the tin boom in the 19th century led to construction of many fine mansions and shops that are still well preserved. The architectural style, typical of the region, is described as Sino-Portuguese, and has a strongly Mediterranean character. A walking tour of the area is easy and delightful.
Soi Bangla Nightlifein Patong BeachBangla Road

Jammed most nights year round, it's actually totally unthreatening and lively place to walk around as bars compete for customers. The girls aim to please - dancing around poles, engaging in banter, or coaxing customers to play simple bar games like "Connect" or "Hammer the nail" to break the ice. The objective is to entice customers to buy drinks and have fun for the night.

THE MOST REVEREDWATCHALONG
WatChalong is the most popular temple in Phuket. Here stands the cast statue of LuangPor Cham, who helped the people of Phuket put down the Angyee, or the Chinese Coolie Rebellion in 1876. There are also statues of LuangPorChaung, LuangPorGluam and other monks, who were abbots of the temple during later times. The statues are objects of much deference to the Phuket people.
Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the island's most important and revered landmarks. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and at 45 metres high it is easily seen from far away. The lofty site offers the best 360-degree views of the island (think sweeping vistas of Phuket Town, Kata, Karon beaches, Chalong Bay and more.) Easily reachable via a six-kilometre road leading from Phuket's main artery, it's a must-visit island destination.
THAI BOXINGIN PHUKET
One of the most popular spectator sports in Thailand, and now gaining world renown, is the martial art of Muay Thai. Exciting enough on TV - the furious punches, crushing elbow strikes, lethal kicks and artful feints are even more riveting when seen live.
Around October of every year, Phuket will be celebrating a vegetarian festival event. Everyone wear white during the period of nine-day period in October, celebrating the Chinese community's belief that abstinence from meat and various stimulants during the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar will help them obtain good health and peace of mind. Though the origins of the festival are unclear, it is commonly thought that the festival was bought to Phuket by a wandering Chinese opera group who fell ill with malaria while performing on the island. They decided to adhere to a strict vegetarian diet and pray to the Nine Emperor Gods to ensure purification of the mind and body. To everyone's amazement the opera group made a complete recovery. The people celebrated by holding a festival that was meant to honor the gods as well as express the people's happiness at surviving what was, in the 19th century, a fatal illness. Subsequently the festival has grown and developed into a spectacular yearly event that is attended by thousands with participants flying in from China and other Asian destinations.
THE ISLAND INFORMATION
Spectacular vertical cliffs rising from clear seas, beautiful lagoons enclosed by rock walls, and idyllic tropical beaches have rightly made these islands among the most famous in the world. But the world beneath the waves of Phi Phi is no less enchanting than the mainland: Dive alongside limestone cliffs, into water caves, and encounter various marine creatures. In 1998, Phi Phi Le was chosen as the film location for ‘The Beach,’ starring Leonardo Di Caprio.
The charm of the soft corals and sea fans make Similan Islands one of the most beautiful dive sites in the world. It also has the greatest diversity of marine life; many species of fish are found only here. With over 100 convenient live-abroad boats ready to serve, no one can deny these islands are in a league of their own.
Phang-nga Bay, a part of Ao Nang National Park, has striking scenic views of limestone formations scattered around. Rock formations, caves and mangroves within the park are the highlights of the area, and are popular among those who love canoeing.James Bond Island and KohPanyee are just two of the more famous spots in this bay. By far the best means of enjoying the spectacular scenery is to take one of the boat trips from the northern end of Phuket.
