Posted by: Phuket Rentals In: Uncategorized
Finally you have decided to spend a holiday in Phuket, and you have 24hrs a day. How are you going to do there? You may find plenty of options for this. First find a place for you to reside at and if you are running out of time then you will have to cover all the hot spots on island.
You can find many places of curiosity here, it may be little tough to find a guesthouse in the famous part of the island town Patong as it is crowdy, but if you try you can as you are aiming at a short trip. This place may be handy, so that you can cover many interesting places over Patong. Now set to go around the island. Hiring a motorcycle for rent might be the coolest way for covering the entire island. Make sure that you buy a road map for this purpose. It’s of course very economical too. Go on for a ride on the roads of Patong on hiring a motorcycle.
Start your trip by heading towards the famous temple on the island Wat Chanlong at Chalong. Are you a photo freak? Then you can make the best of your photos here at Chalong on the top of 60-meter-tall chedi. The next hot spot handy from Chalong is Big Buddha statue on the large hill which may take an hour from there.
The place seems to be very scenic and you have flavor of romance mixed with the feel. Now make your move towards the Promthep Cape which is the best place on the island to watch the sun setting down in the evening. Make sure that you get there before the sun hides. You will be awestruck by the scenic beauty there, and of course Promthep Cape is less crowded.
You may be hungry by this time travelling throughout the day and it’s the time to check out the Thai food now. You will be tricked by the magical Natural Restaurant in Phuket Town (Soi Phutorn, off Rasada Road Circle, turn left at Chinese shrine). Now it’s the moment to taste the amazing night life on the island. As you are having only one night you may find your desire to the local pub KorTorMor Chana Charoen Rd which will astonishingly draws your attention to spend time there.
Of course it’s crowded much at the weekends. Wanna like to have a Phuket beer late night? Then your choice may be James Garden om Poonopl Rd soi 1. Have a good sleep tonight and start the next day with a good Thai breakfast over the streets, find a vendor of your choice among the number of hawkers there.
You will have a great joy for the whole day spent there, and you might be left with very famous beaches to cover. 24 hours is just not sufficient to cover the entire island.
