Thanon Bangla, Tambon Patong, Amphoe Kathu, Chang Wat Phuket 83150, Thailand
Strolling down Bangla Road is almost a rite of passage for visitors to Patong on Phuket Island. Never mind if you don't drink or fancy the garish shows and the like. It's still interesting to take in the parade of characters that comes to this...

Ratsada, Mueang Phuket, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83000, Thailand
Koh Sirey is less frequently touristed than much of Phuket. It’s technically an island, yet it’s so close to the mainland, separated only by a narrow channel with mangroves. For authentic Thai culture, visit the friendly sea gypsies there, called...

Phuket, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83000, Thailand
If you're tired of walking around in Phuket, take one these awesome open-air taxis, or "tuk tuks": They really are an experience. A tuk tuk can carry about six people, and if you want a ride on the cheap, it’s best to flag one down on a main road....

Wat Chaithararam—commonly known as Wat Chalong—is a stunning temple area on Phuket. There's little known about the Wat's original building: It's at least a couple of hundred years old and was apparently relocated at one point. The temple has also...

My personal favorite destination on Phuket Island for spending a few good hours having good food and a decent walkabout is Old Phuket Town. It's not unlike other Straits Settlements, like Penang and Malacca, and is not always on mainstream tourist...

One of the water activities in the islands off Phuket is to feed the tropical fish. Those fish are "spoiled" by all the visitors who feed them bread. When you soak a piece of bread in the water, they come to you within a couple of seconds, and I'm...

My own opinions of Phuket vary every time I visit. For me, it’s a place that can be magical and frustrating, full with as many trappings as it has sensational selling points. Phuket Town is certainly one of my favorite features on the Thai island,...
