Promthep Cape is the most Southern point in Phuket. It offers a large park like area with a lighthouse and cobblestone courtyards, a paved roadway and view point area and an extreme terrain path to trek out to the Southern point. Along the coast and out to the point are rocky shores constantly being bombarded with rough surf, small whirlpools and a rip tide that makes the area a place where you can never swim. During a storm in fact you can see huge 3 meter waves roll in at the point and crash into each other out in the open water.
In Phang Nga just North of Phuket is a very interesting place. Here you can hand feed monkeys at your discretion and also tour a temple that is inside a large cave in a mountain side.
Price Range: Low to Moderate
Nai Harn Beach is a small beach located on Phuket. It offers clean sand, shady trees on its outskirts and many shops and restaurants under palm trees just off its shore.

The waters are usually very calm and there is a relaxing atmosphere with little annoyance from beach vendors.
Big Buddha Phuket is probably the largest Buddha you will ever see in your life. The funny thing is, it has to be called Big Buddha Phuket because in Thailand there are several Big Buddhas. The Thais are a bit lacking when it comes to naming things so its understandable that no matter what province you go to there is a Big Buddha. But this Big Buddha in Phuket is more like a huge Buddha, a massive Buddha even dare I say an epic Buddha?
