Centara Grand Beach Resort, Phuket - Destination Info
Phuket Town is full of surprising little streets and well worth spending time exploring on foot. Look for its fascinating markets, Chinese shrines, Buddhist temples and shopping, both traditional and modern.
The Sirinath National Park on the Andaman coast has a rich and diverse marine environment with pristine corals and a colourful array of other marine life.
In Phuket Zoo, you’ll have a close encounter with thousands of creatures, like crocodiles, camels, tigers, ostriches, emus, and other rare birds. Look out for the beautiful orchids and the exotic water world in the aquarium.
The Phi Phi Islands have been in the movies, starring in ‘The Beach’. Towering cliffs, beach-fronted jungle, and plenty of deserted sands are a 90 minute ferry ride from Phuket.
The best place to watch the sunset on Phuket Island is at its southernmost point: Phrom Thep Cape. The name of the lighthouse is quite a mouthful: Kanchanaphisek. Its museum is worth a peek.
