Phuket Holiday is a travel guide providing holiday tips, discount hotels & resorts, reviews and detailed information about Phuket Thailand
Hello Lasse, the old Phuket Town is great to walk around and take photos. Lots of small streets, small restaurants and old Sino-Portuguese architecture to discover. If you are looking for a quiet beach try Nai Thong Beach and Nai Yang Beach North of Phuket, between Bangtao and the airport. I recommend having your own transportation to discover Phuket. Rent at the airport or in Phuket town to get better rates. Here some good resources for info on Phuket: 1) list of activities in Phuket: http://www.phuket-holiday.com/activities.html 2) list of places to see in Phuket: http://www.phuket-holiday.com/sightseeing.html 3) Travel tips for Phuket: http://www.phuket-holiday.com/travel-tips.html Enjoy Phuket Phuket Holiday Team almost 8 years ago
Hello Mark, if you are looking for a quiet, very comfortable, great for kids and family, resort I would recommend Dewa Phuket on Nai Yang Beach just a few kilometers from the airport. Check out Dewa Phuket on http://www.phuket-holiday.com/phuket-accommodation.html - Dewa Phuket has amazing private pool villas with your own garden for very good rate. Dewa Phuket is also highly recommended on Trip Advisor. Good Luck and enjoy your stay in Phuket. Phuket Holiday Team almost 8 years ago
We are staying at a resort near Nai Yang beach. We want to do some simple fishing for a half day. Any suggestions?
Hello Tony, you have 3 choices: 1) fish off the rocks on Nai Yang bay at the southern end of the bay (left side end of the bay when looking at the bay). You will catch small rock fish but nothing large. 2) Contact the local fisherman and negotiate a 1/2 day on their boat. Price should be around 1,000 Baht to 1,500 Baht for 1/2 day. Bring everything you will need, that is, water, food and sun protection. They can provide hand lines and bait for you. There are 2 places on Nai Yang Beach, a) in the middle of the pine park you will see boats parked on the beach, early morning you should be able to catch a few fisherman, b) walk past the restaurants and at the end of the road you will see more fishing boats. Be very careful with the weather which can quickly turn for the worst. 3) You can book a fishing trip with a number of professional companies on Phuket. These companies will provide everything you need for the journey including refreshments, foods, gear, bait and they take you where the fishes are.
