For those who like their adventure to be a little more mechanical than elephants! Phuket has two Go-Kart tracks one of which offers a full range from slow to proper racing Karts. This will certainly get your blood pumping and adrenaline surging.
Kayaking in Chalong Phuket
Right off the beach in front of the resort at high tide is an ideal location to kayak, get some sun and enjoy a little light exercise. For the more adventurous we suggest you consider the “Hongs by Starlight” tour conducted by John Gray SeaCanoe. Named by National Geographic as one of the worlds top 25 adventures this is a fantastic excursion, educational and enjoyable.
Sail in Phang-nga Bay
Captain Mark of Phuket Sail Tours conducts fun, relaxed, and memorable day charters on stunning Phang-nga Bay year round. He gets great reviews from our guests and from all of his customers. His yacht Sakai is large enough to be comfortable and small enough to ensure personalized attention. You will visit islands, beaches and caves on this fantastic day out.
Big Buddha Tourist Attraction
Almost completed this tribute to HM The King of Thailand can be seen from many miles out to sea. At 45m tall this is the tallest Buddha statue in Thailand and dwarfs the famous Hong Kong monument on Lantau Island which at 34m was known as the “world’s tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha”. The views of sunrise and sunset are spectacular from the site which sits atop Nakkerd Hill, 380m above sea level. People visit daily to pray and chant at the statue.

Phuket Island Tour
See the real Phuket. Our staff can recommend friendly English speaking guides to show you around Phuket. Half day or full day excursions available.
Wat Chalong Temple Tourist Attraction
Wat Chalong is Phuket’s most important Buddhist temple and is the biggest and most ornate of Phuket’s 29 Buddhist monasteries. Many Thais travel long distances to visit this temple, be blessed by the monks and receive a good luck charm in the form of a string tied around the wrist, which they believe protects them from injury and illness.
Elephant Trekking activities in Phuket
These magnificent creatures have long been actively involved in agriculture in Thailand. Now they earn income for their owners by providing transport on spectacular jungle treks. The motion as you sit atop one of these majestic animals takes a little getting used to, but it is well worth the effort. There are a number of short rides and half-day excursions available, some located very conveniently to Atmanjai.
