Attractions in Phuket
Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the most important and revered landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 metres tall, can be seen from as far away as Phuket Town and Karon Beach.
Karon Beach in Phuket is one of the longest beaches on the island, spanning 5 km of fine white sand overlooking the Andaman Sea. The northern end of the beach is usually deserted, making it an excellent spot for those who want the beach to themselves. The southern end, close to Kata, tends to be busier but it isn't that hard to find a nice spot for yourself.
Kata Noi Beach is a great place to relax and soak up the sun. At about 700 metres long, it's one of Phuket's smaller beaches. Soft sand, crystal clear water, and the lush green jungle backdrops are the main draws here. The sea is very calm from December to April, while surfers come out to play between May and October. Kata Noi Beach enjoys large swells during this period, so be careful if you see red flags on the sand.
Sirinat National Park is quite a small coastal park, covering 22 km² of coastal land and 68 km² is sea at the northwest coast of Phuket Island. It is about 30 km north from Phuket Town, right next to Phuket Airport. The park is best known for its white sand beaches and the view of aircraft flying low over a beach for landing. The national park is very commercialized with many resorts in and around the park, frequently visited by a large number of tourists.
Wat Chalong is a historical landmark and Buddhist temple in Phuket's Chalong Bay. For centuries, locals come to pray almost every day while westerners learn about Buddhism during their holiday. It's officially called Wat Chaitararam, but most people refer to it by Wat Chalong. The temple is located on Chao Fa West Road in the northern part of Tambol Chalong.
