Do not miss: the Thai Hua Museum, Soi Rommanee and the old building of the Standard Chartered Bank. It’s interesting to see and discover a part of Thailand’s history.
This immense statue of Buddha is made from white marble and sits on the summit of Nakkerd Hill. 25 metres high, the statue is visible from every part of Phuket – so you won’t be able to miss it! It’s a religious site so you must cover your shoulders and arms when you visit. Sarongs are provided for women for free. Otherwise, you can simply go and enjoy the superb point of view.
An archipelago made up of 2 islands: Ko Phi Phi Don and Ko Phi Phi Leh. The latter has been used as the backdrop for a variety of films because of its gorgeous nature, and here you will always find Maya Bay.

With white sand, majestic cliffs and emerald sea, the island is calm and tranquil, and this is why there are no cars allowed on land.
The Wat Chalong Temple is the biggest and most visited of the 29 temples which are open for visits in Phuket. Composed of 3 layers and 60 metres high, it was built at the beginning of the 19th century. If you want to explore more after the visit, there are enormous gardens surrounding the buildings. Naturally, you will need to cover your legs and shoulders upon entry to the sacred site.
Depending on how intense your itinerary is, some of you may need more relaxing than others during your yacht charter in Phuket.

There are numerous services available, but according to Lonely Planet, the best 5 are: Bua Luang Spa, Six Senses Spa, Sala Resort and Spa, Hideaway Day Spa, Raintree Spa. That’s what holidays are all about, no?

There are plenty of lively bars and night clubs where you can avail of the cheap drinks and the friendly and fun ambiance.
It would be a shame to charter a yacht in Phuket and to not take advantage of these beautiful surrounding islands. These islands are sheltered from mass tourism but are equally accessible by boat which means they are an easy stop-off to schedule into your itinerary.
Koh Lone is ‘rural’ in every sense of the word. You can make a tour of the island without seeing anyone else which means that you have the crystal seas and white sands all to yourself.

Again, this island has beautiful sand beaches and clear waters to avail of. Enjoy these treasures of nature in peace and quiet.
This charming, isolated islet is located 9km off the south of Phuket, and it takes around 30 minutes to sail here.

This places this island as the ideal place for practising snorkelling or diving. As the name suggests, the island is surrounded by coral reefs and on land, there is a wide expanse of green countryside.
