Few places in the world are more relaxing than Phuket, a paradise city located in Thailand. Attracting over nine million tourists a year, Phuket is famous for its beautiful beaches, scrumptious street food, immersive island tours, and vibrant nightlife. Just as it is beset with exciting activities, it can also be a place of solace. If you’re spending some time in Phuket, try to squeeze in a few days to unwind, clear your head, and alleviate your stress.
To give you an idea of what to do, here are some relaxing activities you can do in Phuket:
Spend the day at Rawai Beach
Phuket is home to several stunning beaches, with Patong Beach being the most popular, but a lot of them are usually filled with tourists. If you want to relax and enjoy peace and quiet, you can head to a lesser-known yet equally beautiful beach like Rawai. You can spend your day here lying on the sand, with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other.
You can witness the awe-inspiring sunset as you end your day. There are restaurants and bars in the area where you can eat your meals, and if you want to go on a water adventure, activities like jet ski and parasailing are offered in the area.
Eat authentic Thai food
What can fill the soul more than eating delicious food? In Phuket, you can enjoy food pretty much anywhere, from restaurants and cafes to night markets. Indulge in the famous Pad Thai, sip the world favorite Thai milk tea, and satisfy your sweet tooth with some mango sticky rice. Some of the best street foods in Phuket can be found in Malin Plaza Night Market and Da Hood Night Market.
Go on an island tour
While hopping from one island to another isn’t exactly everyone’s idea of unwinding, just seeing the beautiful sights alone is relaxing in and of itself. You can explore the stunning sights in the Phi Phi Islands by speedboat, where you can see places like Maya Bay (as seen in the movie “The Beach”), Viking Cave, and Monkey Beach. You can get the chance to snorkel in the emerald green waters, enjoy the marvelous views of the limestone cliffs, and sunbathe on the white sand beach of Khai Nai Island.
Enjoy a legit Thai massage
It goes without saying that Thailand is the best place in the world to get a Thai massage. If you want to relax your mind and body, you shouldn’t miss out on this. After shopping, going on a food trip, and engaging in marine activities, the best way to unwind is to get a classic Thai massage. There are tons of high-end spas, salons, and on-the-beach setups that offer Thai massage, but if you don’t want to travel far, you can enjoy the V Spa located within the resort. In addition to a relieving Thai massage, it also offers body scrubs, facial treatments, and steams.
