Wonders of nature
Discover the beauty of the Phuket’s lush natural landscape with guided treks through the pristine rainforest. A four-hour morning hike in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park brings guests face to face with a startling array of indigenous flora and fauna, including rare white-backed palms, and colourful birds such as the red-billed malkoha, the greater racket-tailed drongo and red-backed sea-eagle – as well as providing opportunities to see dramatic waterfalls and meet playful gibbons in their natural habitat.
Streets of the Old Town
Phuket’s colourful markets are a fascinating way to sample traditional Thai food, watch street performers, and browse local arts and handicrafts. Set in a charming pocket of Phuket Old Town, Walking Street Market is well worth a visit on any day of the week, but we recommend that you time yours to coincide with the vibrant weekly night market. On Sunday evenings the old Sino-Portuguese houses lining the street light up with bright colours as the spaces between them fill with buskers, performers, and stalls selling local food, handicrafts, clothing and souvenirs.
Great for golf
Phuket is blessed with six superlative courses, spread over coconut plantations, costal cliffs and beautifully landscaped gardens. They include the revered Blue Canyon Golf & Country Club, a PGA Tournament host that is home to two championship courses. Amanpuri guests are free to use the resort’s collection of high-quality clubs, with both right-handed and left-handed men’s and women’s’ sets available.
