Phuket is a region with a staggering amount on offer from the landscape and wildlife to the cultural attractions and sporting opportunities. Because there is so much to do, a trip to Phuket can seem overwhelming. Just how are visitors meant to fit everything in? The answer may lie in Phuket tours – the ideal way to see as much of the island as possible.
Island tours are some of the more varied and popular forms available in Phuket. Because of the stunning landscape, these tours are a must for anybody wanting to take in a much of the beautiful scenery and tranquility as possible. In order for visitors to see as much as possible, many operators use a speedboat to get between the islands – especially the collection known as the Phi Phi islands – but other companies provide a much more leisurely approach, such as a Chinese junk boat. During these Phuket tours, guests can often have the choice to upgrade their package and add additional activities such as scuba diving and glass-bottomed boat rides.
Phuket tours can, of course, provide so much more than just natural scenery and the wonders of the ocean. Sightseeing city tours are a staple of most destinations and tour operators, and Phuket is no different. With these tours, you can be guided past the beaches, temples and other local attractions, stopping off to enjoy local food and shopping experiences along the way. They really are a great way to get an extensive taste of the region in just one day. Alternatively, guests can be provided with a whole new perspective of the resort by seeing Phuket from the air. Helicopter tours vary from short trips taking in the sights of specific regions to hour long expeditions covering the majority of Phuket and the surrounding islands.
As well as coaches and helicopters there are plenty of other forms of transportation available to help you embark on Phuket tours, either with professional guidance or under your own steam. Horse riding and cycling are great ways to travel through Phuket and embrace eco-tourism, but if you are looking for something a little more adventurous why not try sea kayaking or taking a trip out on an ATV. Some tour operators have seen the market in adventure and eco-tourism and have created tours that combine ATVs, white-water rafting and elephant trekking in one fantastic package. While we are on the subject of elephants, it is also worth noting that there are safari-style Phuket tours that let you experience the the wildlife of the resort such as elephants, buffalo and monkeys and can provide some very close encounters.
