How to Spend An Exciting Day in Phuket

24 Hours of Non-Stop Fun around Phuket

There are so many things to see and do in Phuket that it's quite a challenge to enjoy them all, even if you're staying for a couple of weeks. If you have only 1 day on the island, our guide below fits everything most travellers will do and see during their vacation into just 24 hours.

It's technically possible to follow each of our recommendations – you'll need to rent a motorbike to easily get around the island but beyond that, all you need to do is go with the flow. Get ready for a fun and frantic day in Phuket. Just remember to save the next full day to recover from all the excitement.
