Phuket’s largest bay is also one of its most attractive. Numerous long-tailed and sailing boats dot the horizon. The shoreline is the principal anchorage spot for boats. Open-air spaces and kiosks with information for tourists are present, along with restaurants, bars, and pubs. However, the most-loved spot on the beach is the pier, which is 720 metres long and 7 metres wide. Its length impresses visitors, and should you visit in the evening, watching the sunset out on the pier is an experience you should not miss.
Orchid Farm

6) Orchid Farm

The Orchid Farm is a place that must not be missed if you love gardening and are an admirer of the weird yet beautiful flowers, the orchids. Located about three kilometers from the city, on the Thepkasattri Road, the garden is a fun place for both adults and children.

Covering a vast expanse of about 1600 sq. meters, the farm boasts a wide collection of these exotic flowers.

With informative displays and well-arranged presentation of the flowers, the Orchid Farm is a delight to experience. But you needn’t be a botanist to enjoy this stunning garden! The Orchid Farm is the perfect place for those who just want to spend an amazing day surrounded by these delicate, beautiful flowers.

And if you have had your share of the orchids, you might want to visit the Thai Village which is just a stone throw away from the garden. Get to experience the traditional Thai culture with colorful folk dances and the mouthwatering cuisine. Take home some traditional Thai mementos and souvenirs from the Village to remember your stay in Phuket.
