Compared to some other more popular places to visit, Phuket has often been described as an undiscovered gem by those who have been lucky enough to visit; often forgotten by many tourists looking to visit the area, it goes without saying a vacation to Phuket will be an unforgettable experience. The largest island in Thailand is bordered by the Andaman Sea, set in a stunning tropical landscape of beaches, cultural wonders and jungled natural beauty. If you’re looking for a diverse but beautiful landscape filled with endless cultural heritage, delicious local food and a range of fun activities to take part in, plan a vacation to Phuket for your next getaway. The best way to experience this small piece of paradise is to take one of our tours in Phuket, where you can experience the local life and uncover the best bits of the island with the knowledge of a friendly local tour guide by your side. If you’re thinking about taking a vacation to Phuket, have a look through our list of helpful tips and tricks below to make the most out of your self exploration or Phuket tours you take on your visit!

Whether you’d like to experience one of our sightseeing tours in Phuket or want to get more in touch with the Island’s diverse collection of nature, one of our day tours in Phuket is a great way to explore the island!

What to pack for your trip to Phuket
Swimsuit - on this tropical island, you’ll practically be living in your swimsuit so definitely don’t forget this! You’re bound to explore the beautiful beaches at some point, and forgetting will put a damper on your Phuket holiday.
Sarong - a sarong will come in really handy here. Use it as a beach towel, or a lightweight cover-up!
Sunscreen - this is an essential in the south of Thailand as the sun is really strong here. Even in the ‘cooler’ months expect high temperatures, and no one wants to be that burnt tourist walking about on their Phuket excursion!
Money belt - a money belt or bum bag is a great hands-free way to carry your money and other important items around.
Plug adapter - you’ll probably have at least a few devices that you’ll want to charge so this is a pretty important one! Taking your camera is a must, we promise you’ll want to take plenty of snaps on our guided Phuket tours.
Waterproof phone bag - these come in so useful when going on boat tours as you won’t have to worry about getting your phone wet. Plus, it means you can take photos around the water without having to fret!
Frequently Asked Questions
What currency is used in Phuket?
The currency used in Phuket is the Thai Baht. One of the best ways to manage your money before your vacation to Phuket is to try and budget the amount of Baht you might need, and exchange your local currency before you go. Although you can exchange your currency and use credit or debit cards in Phuket, you’ll generally be charged additional fees - especially in tourist destinations like airports and big hotels. Just be careful that you only carry as much cash around with you as you need for souvenirs on our tours in Phuket, or enough to cover entrance fees and meals if you’re exploring by yourself. You should always leave your valuables in a safe or other secure location if you’re leaving them in the hotel or place you’re staying.
Is Phuket safe to visit?
So long as you stick to the most popular tourist areas, a vacation to Phuket is as safe as most other destinations. As with anywhere in the world, it’s important you stay vigilant to avoid scams, petty thefts and other dangers - taxis have been known to charge inflated prices, thieves operate in less tourist-y areas, and some street food can upset stomachs not used to the Asian cuisine! By using common sense and taking care when you’re out and about, you can enjoy the best this island has to offer! By booking one of our day tours in Phuket, your tour guide will not only take you to amazing places on the island, but keep you safe in the process! Our Phuket tour guides are known for offering great experiences, leveraging their knowledge of the local area to show you the best spots, tastiest food and most interesting places to visit.
Is Phuket expensive?
A vacation to Phuket can be expensive or more budget friendly to visit depending on the accommodation you choose, food you eat, and activities you undertake. Although Phuket is one of the more expensive parts of Thailand, it doesn’t mean you can’t live more frugally if you choose the cheaper areas of the island and stay away from beach resorts and 5 star hotels! A vacation to Phuket on a budget can still be a trip to paradise, filled with delicious street food, affordable hotels and amazing places to visit. One of the best ways to explore Phuket without opening your wallet too wide is with a guided tour in Phuket, where you get your own private local tour guide, entrance fees, meals and even transportation included in the price.
What is the best time to visit Phuket?
The best times to visit Phuket actually lie at the beginning and end of the year, with these months being some of the driest and having some of the most favorable temperatures. Between November and April, Phuket doesn’t experience much rainfall, with average temperatures ranging between 24 and 34 degrees, and less than 100mm of rainfall, depending on the specific month and time of day. For many, a vacation to this island is a once in a lifetime experience, so make sure you choose the best time of year for your trip to Phuket!
How long should I stay in Phuket?
Although you probably can spend just a few days on your trip to Phuket, we recommend at least a week to experience everything the island has to offer. You could even spend up to a couple of weeks without getting bored! If you can only spend a short amount of time on your Phuket vacation, try and do a couple of things well as opposed to packing loads of things in to give you the best experience possible.
Planning your vacation to Phuket can be a daunting task, but we hope that our tips and tricks when it comes to this beautiful island have helped you when it comes to planning your once in a lifetime getaway. If you’re suffering from a paradox of choice when it comes to finding the perfect things to do on the island, choose from our carefully curated list of tours in Phuket, run by our friendly local tour guides who can’t wait to show you round the island on your truly unforgettable trip to Phuket!
