This is the biggest temple in Phuket and one of the most visited. Built in the beginning of 19th century, it is colourful and decorated with Buddhist statues from ancient mythology. The architecture is typical of Thailand. However, this is only one of the many amazing temples which you can visit. 94% Buddhist, Thailand has a wealth of beautiful temples, historical monuments and unique museums. The original and unique architecture of these sacred places is characterised by a sophistication and gorgeous décor, splashes of gold, flamboyant colours and these spaces radiate serenity and spirituality. The temples are amazing to visit, even if you’re unfamiliar with the culture and religion of the country.

Nature-lovers will completely adore the climate, flora and fauna which is on offer in this island. A catamaran charter in Phuket will give you the opportunity to discover the exceptional natural heritage of the island in all its splendour. There are many trails which you can take; these will lead you to waterfalls where you can swim, discover amazing species of flora and fauna or even raft, if you’re feeling adventurous. Various zones in the island differ massively with regards to landscape. While some areas are more mountainous, others are rocky, others are sandier, and several are covered in jungle. Make sure you take time in nature to be able to enjoy it all!
Another brilliant advantage to Phuket is the diversity of surroundings and the range of experiences on offer. For example, you can spend a day on Ko Sire Island, a tiny island separated by a river and a refuge from mass tourism. In the extreme east of the island, you can experience a more authentic local cuisine and the numerous fishermen’s ports also give you a different look into the island. Contrast this with Cap Phanwa where you can visit Research Centre of Marine Biology and Phuket Aquarium and see many different species of marine species. Stroll down the 10-metre-long glass tunnel and you can observe the different, exotic schools of fish. The Research Centre of Marine Biology leads many studies on tropical ecosystems of the reefs and the development of commercial fish.
