Temples In Phuket
With Phuket home to more than 40 Buddhist wats (temples), you might want to set aside some time to take in the tranquil atmosphere at these temples.
The oldest, biggest and most visited is the ornate Wat Chalong. Built during the 19th century, the complex includes several multi-tiered buildings dominated by the Grand Pagoda with its 60-metre glittering chedi. It houses a bone fragment of the Buddha and the interior walls and ceilings are decorated with intricate paintings that depict the life of Buddha.
The island’s second most important temple is Wat Phrathong, located just north of Phuket Town. The main attraction here is a half-buried golden statue of the Buddha named Luang Poh Phra Thong.
Further south is Wat Suwan Khiri Khet, also called Wat Karon on account of its location in the northern part of the beach. You can’t miss the fantastical emerald-green and gold nagas (mythical serpent beings) that encircle the main temple buildings, keeping watch over the sacred grounds.
Just outside the party vibe of Patong, Wat Kathu is a tiny oasis of calm and peace. The red windows of the lavishly decorated buildings are covered with gilded reliefs of scenes from the lives of the Buddha.
Phuket Walking Street / Night Markets
Night Market Phuket Town is also known as Phuket Walking Street, and in the Southern Thai dialect as Lard Yai, which means “big market.”
This weekly market, held every Sunday, is held on the beautifully renovated Thalang Road, right in the middle of the historic Sino-Portuguese district of Phuket Town, lined by Chinese, Thai Muslim and Indian shops and restaurants.
Night Market Phuket Town can be reached on foot from Novotel Phuket Phokeeethra but it is probably best to take a taxi or a tuk-tuk, especially for families with young children, and this is very much a family-oriented market with toy stalls alongside the handicraft and clothing stalls, and even a free-to-use trampoline for the youngsters to bounce around and have a good time.
Phuket Fanta Sea: Spectacular Cultural Show
A Phuket show is one of the great attractions of holidaying on the island, and Phuket FantaSea is a spectacular Phuket activity that is easy to reach by road from Novotel Phuket Phokeethra. This immensely popular Phuket activity is a nighttime theme park that covers an area of 60 acres and includes a Phuket cultural show, an elephant show, a theme buffet restaurant, and a shopping street.
Phuket FantaSea is located at Kamala Beach, on the western side of the island, and a Phuket tour can be arranged to take guests from Novotel Phuket Phokeethra to this Phuket show, and bring them back again. Phuket FantaSea is an extravaganza of illusion techniques and special effects and is entirely unlike any other Phuket activity.
The centrepiece of this Phuket show is a 70-minute theatrical presentation performed inside the Phuket FantaSea theatre called Palace of the Elephants.
