Phuket is a beautiful destination with exotic beaches and amazing nightlife. Visiting the surrounding islands tops the list of “things to do in Phuket.”. The Islands which can be accessed from Phuket are considered to be among the best islands in this globe!
I visited Phuket with my 2 other friends. We stayed at Patong beach in Phuket and had a blast at Bangla Road. We also visited king size tigers and experienced the thrill to be with these gigantic animals. Below mentioned are the top 5 things to do in Phuket from my experience.
1) Visit the Tigers: Tiger Kingdom is one of the major attractions in Phuket. We stayed at Patong beach and hence it was very close to our place. We booked a Cab and paid him 200 Baht for a to & fro journey to reach the tiger kingdom. We were enthralled by what we saw. Gigantic Tigers were resting in peace and lurking at the tourists, but in a friendly way.
Contrary to the popular belief, these tigers are not sedated or drugged. They are trained in such a manner that they don’t mind the company of humans. In fact, they are accustomed to be around humans since their birth. Visiting Tiger Kingdom one of the exciting things to do in Phuket.
There are 3 type of tigers. Large, Medium & Small. The small tigers are playful and the large are lazy. The most aggressive ones are the medium sized tigers. To spend 10 minutes with the large tigers, you will have to shell out 800 Baht per person. There are various combinations of tigers for which you have to pay accordingly. You can go through a list before choosing and can select accordingly. I would recommend this experience as it is a unique experience in Phuket.
