How to Make the Most out of your #Phuket Weekend

It’s easy to forget how painless it is to get from Bangkok to Phuket. In a couple of hours, you can be out of the BTS grind and blissfully beachside. Ok, now that your memory has been refreshed, maybe it’s time to make a Phuket getaway happen. Worried that you only have a weekend to spare? Fear not, there’s plenty to enjoy in just 36 hours alone. Here are a few things not to miss on your next Phuket jaunt.

If you don’t get offshore during your 36 hours in Phuket, you’re doing it wrong. The coastal paradise is one of the best spots in the world for kayaking, diving, and parasailing. Skyla’s Surf & SUP Club is a solid spot to check out if you’re interested in getting your stand up paddle boarding on.

 Day tours are another excellent way to savor the local sights. But don’t just cruise the nearby Phang Nga Bay area by boat tour, dive into the stunning scenery. Make sure to book a tour that offers guests the opportunity to swim at hard to reach beaches or stop at lively snorkeling points.

Being out of Bangkok should feel like a breath of fresh air. Take advantage of Phuket’s total holiday feel by hitting up the city’s spas after a day in the water. The Raintree Spa is one of our favorites, with a range of treatments and massages that will melt away your stress at reasonable prices. A more luxurious touch can be found at top Phuket hotels. Le Spa at Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is one such place. Stop by the resort’s Tonson Bar for a cocktail after your treatment to round out the day of indulgence.

 Phuket is filled with great accommodations to choose from for Bangkok vacationers. For those interested in aesthetics, Point Yamu by COMO is hard to beat. Situated in the quiet and picturesque Cape Yamu pocket of Phuket, the resort is a social media maven’s dream with an eclectic design and jaw dropping views.

For something easy on the budget, Phuket Graceland Resort & Spa is a great pick complete with a massive pool. The resort is stacked with a fitness center in case you want to work on those abs before hitting the beach.
