It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. The main attraction being the beaches, islands and stunning scenery. To add to that are great Golf courses, eco-tourism and without doubt, a great place for snorkelling and diving. If you like the thrill of speed, then speed boating could be for you.
One of the most popular tourist area is the Patong Beach. However some parts of this area are definitley not Halal friendly, as most of Phuket's nightlife is located in Patong. There are other "less developed" but more family friendly beaches such as the Karon beach, Kata Noi Beach, Nai Harn beach, Kamal beach, Surin beach etc. if you want to enjoy the beaches.
A short boat trip will take you to many islands including the coral islands of Similan and Phi Phi. Stunning scenaries, swimming, snorkelling, windsurf etc. could keep you occupied for the whole day there. Phuket is also home to around 20 km² of rainforest. So eco-tourism is another option.
Phuket Old Town is also a "must stroll around" place, if you visit Phuket. A half a day with a visit to the local masjid is not a bad idea. Choose early in the morning or late afternoon to do this.
There are quite a few Halal restaurants in Phuket; some have certification and some not. We have added around 10 Halal restaurants in Phuket in our restaurant listing section now.
