Phuket, in the south of Thailand, is a fantastic tropical holiday destination to visit with the family, and there are lots of things to see and do that everyone will enjoy when there. Whether you want to explore culture, experience the local wildlife, shop till you drop, or splash about all day in a water park, Phuket has it all. Below are some family-friendly activities you can do when visiting Phuket that will be lots of fun for all the family.
Spend An Afternoon With The Elephants
One experience you will never forget when visiting Phuket is spending an afternoon with the elephants and experiencing these gentle giants up close. You will learn about these majestic pachyderms, feed them, touch them carefully, and take them for a bath, but you will not get to ride them, which is the best thing for the animals. You can visit various ethical elephant sanctuaries in Phuket, so plenty of options are available.
Cool Off At The Water Park
If the heat is getting to you and your family and you need lots of fun, and to cool down, a visit to one of the many water parks in Phuket, such as Blue Tree, is the perfect way to have fun and cool down. There are attractions inside if you need to stay out of the sun for a while and cool off, with plenty of food and drinks available when you are hungry and thirsty.
Go Shopping In Phuket Town
Your family may also enjoy a morning shopping in Phuket’s old town and see what you can find to buy. It is an excellent place to experience Phuket’s culture and pick up some souvenirs or gifts for people back home. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink as you explore the city, and you can use public transport and taxis to get there and back to the hotel.
Chill Out In Your Resort
Your holiday does not have to be packed with adventure, and you can spend your days chilling by the pools if you prefer and let the children go to the kid’s club. You can swim in the pool or the sea, depending on where you stay, and you can get drinks and food whenever you need it. You can also charge your electronic devices, and if you need a nap, you can go back to your room, and you will feel refreshed and relaxed after a day of doing nothing.
