Places to Visit in a 4 day trip in Phuket Thailand


We are two couples visiting Phuket - 28th Feb, 2014 to 4th March 2014.

We would like to understand which are the best places we should not miss in Phuket.

We are planning for a 1 day trip to Phi Phi island. Please help on the price list of ferries and speed boat for the same. A

Any other suggestion, most welcome.

4 days and one of them is already booked to Phi Phi.

So, what part of Phuket are you staying in?

Transportation is a problem here you know.

Personally I would take a tour of the west coast with a driver to point out the attractions.

If you are on the south part of the island, go to Laem Prom Thep, the windmill, maybe Wat Chalong if you are into that sort of thing, maybe Big Buddha.

That would be at least a half day trip.

If north part of the island, I would check out PhangNga although that and Phi Phi in one trip is probably too much of the same (seeing beautiful sites from a boat)

The Botanical garden in Chalong is great.

Patong is a trip in itself but those of us who live here, do our best to stay away. (very touristy and crowded)

Good luck and have fun.

Hiii ;;;

1st day; Spend a day exploring the area near by your hotel and fo fo shopping if you would like too.

2nd day; You can take a half day tour around Phuket. We paid 1200BHT for tuktuk for 4ppl and he took us around for like 4hours. Try to ask few tuktuk around. But phuket is well known for "Mafia taxis".

3rd day; do day tour to the nearby islands/beaches for kayak n snorklling. This will cost u 900-1000 BHT for big boat.

4th day; take another tour from Phuket-PhiPhi island. You will go for snorklling and beaches than asked to be dropped on to phiphi island. Make sure with the Travel agency to let u in the boat that stop last in PhiPhi. This what we did and it cost us 1000-1100 BHT for a big boat. As i remmber the ferry cost only to PhiPhi from the pier is 600BHT. So i prefered to pay 400 more and enjoy the trip which is including lunch.

Good luck.
