Although we are predominantly a Phuket golf tour company, we also like to ensure that our guests to the island get the opportunity to see Phuket in its full glory. Allow us to provide you with a single daytrip itinerary to explore the east-side of Phuket.
8:00am: Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and Bang Pae Waterfall
On the east coast road from the Heroine?s monument, you will find the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and Bang Pae Waterfall. What better way to start the day than to take a dip in the cool waters of the beautiful waterfall. Couple this together with the densely forested areas of the park and the adjoining Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, and you will see Phuket at its natural and beautiful best.
10:30am: Dinner and a stroll around Royal Phuket Marina
The Royal Phuket Marina is one of Phuket?s most exclusive areas, owning a luxurious marina, residential properties and a selection of restaurants and health facilities all under one roof. Take a leisurely stroll around the fabulous marina and across the boardwalk. With fabulous restaurants such as Skippers, Les Anges and Mom Tri?s Regatta, you can have an unparalleled choice of eateries at your fingertips. Les Anges is a great place to try out homemade pastries, courtesy of their onsite bakery.
Midday: Retail Therapy at the commercial park on By Pass Road
If you are seeking a spot of retail therapy, visiting the commercial park on the By Pass Road on the outskirts of Phuket Town is a must. With shopping centres from the likes of Central Festival, Big C, Tesco Lotus and the DIY centre Homeworks, you will be spoilt for choice.
1:30pm: Ao Yon Beach ? Near Cape Panwa
You cannot visit the east coast of the island without a drive towards Cape Panwa. One of the cosiest and untapped beaches in the area is Ao Yon. Enjoy a stroll along this beautiful stretch of sand with views looking out towards Chalong Bay.
2:30pm: The Phuket Aquarium ? Cape Panwa
When visiting the quaint Cape Panwa area of the island, a pilgrimage to the Phuket Aquarium is essential. Here you will find a host of exotic fish and marine life within the purpose built aquarium.
3:45pm: Phuket Zoo – Chalong
Although Phuket Zoo is not the largest zoo in the world, a couple of hours viewing the elephants, snakes, monkey shows and the vast array of other wildlife will top off your day perfectly.
6:00pm: Seafood Restaurants at Palai
To finish off your action packed day, we would suggest that you visit one of the many value for money and delicious seafood restaurants at Palai (on the same road as the Phuket Zoo) to enjoy some of the freshest seafood on the island. Tang Kae and Palai Seafood are two of the best in that area. Relax into the early evening whilst looking out towards Cape Panwa and Chalong Bay from these beachside restaurants.
