All Attractions in Kamala
There's a saying that if you really want to get to know a country, you should visit its local markets. In Thailand that's certainly true; you can soak up a whole lot of local flavour – and eat some too – just by walking around the local market (or ‘talad’ in Thai). Thai fresh markets are cornucopias of colourful fruit and vegetables, prepared snacks & food, chunks of red or green curry, dried foods, unrecognizable merchandise, dodgy CD’s, DVD’s, and computer games and brightly hued T-shirts and jeans, hair accessories, handicrafts, not to mention secondhand shoes, name-brand copies… and all at bargain prices. Anything can happen at a Thai local market. Read More...
Phuket FantaSea is the island's biggest show. With trapeze artists, a cast of hundreds, performing elephants and other animals and an exotic storyline that blends tradition with fantasy you'll have a wonderful evening out here.
But the extravaganza doesn't stop there as FantaSea also hosts one of the biggest buffets in Asia and is set in a theme park that offers carnival-like games, lots of shopping opportunities, a Palace of the Elephants, a Similan Adventure Centre and several other food outlets. It's spectacular, it's extravagent, it's impressive and great entertainment value for all. Read More...

Wat Baan Kamala
A lovely Buddhist temple, Wat Baan Kamala is truly a spiritual centre for the locals and has been there a long time. In spite of this the temple and its gardens look surprisingly new as they were renovated after 2004’s tsunami. Located on the seafront at the southern end of the village, Kamala Temple features a main chapel (or ubosot in Thai), a bell tower and many Buddha images and statues depicting his life. Visitors will enjoy a visit to this charming village temple. Dressing respectfully (no revealing attire) is a must as this is a holy place for many Thais.
