Land based activities

Elephant Trekking       

Elephant trekking can be a memorable experience not to be missed during your stay in Phuket, especially for children. Places such as the Chalong Highlands to the south of the island as well as Khao Lak and Khao Sok offer Elephant trekking and you can ride on an elephant along a trail through jungle and rubber plantations. For most of the time, elephant treks will also involve a ride on bamboo rafts or buffalo cart as well. There is also usually an elephant show in which trained elephants perform various tasks such performing in the circus.

Bungy Jump  

If you are a thrill seeking, extreme sport enthusiast or just looking for something to take you out of your comfort zone, then this is the perfect activity for you. Here you can jump from 50 metres over the green-blue water of the Jungle Lagoon at the Jungle Bungy Jump in Kathu. It  is located on the main road leading out of Patong to Phuket Town near the major intersection at Kathu. Set over a picturesque pond, formerly an old tin mining site, it has now been transformed into a safe location for experiencing big-time thrills. The jump site is the only licensed one in Thailand and the only insured site in Asia.

 Go Karts    

Located on the main road in Kathu between Patong Beach and Phuket City. The Patong Go-kart Speedway is open every day from 10 am to 7 pm. Pit your driving skills on a challenging racing track. Single and double karts plus helmets are available and there’s floodlighting for evening races. The track has a car park, restaurant and seating area for spectators.

Rock Climbing and Abseiling   

Only a few hours away from Phuket are some of the most challenging and beautiful climbing sites in the world, attracting both novice and hard core climbers. Most of the action is on the towering limestone rocks in the headland between Tham Phra Nang (Phra Nang Cave Beach) and Railay East beach in Krabi. Get there by bus (about 2.5 hours from Phuket to Krabi Town, then a long-tail boat ride from either the pier at Krabi Town or from Ao Nang Beach). Phuket has also climbing wall, located at Quest Laguna Phuket, which offers instruction in climbing and abseiling techniques for people of all ages and experience.

Phuket Aquarium  

Phuket Aquarium is located at the tip of Cape Panwa and it was created with the purpose of increase the understanding about Thailand’s marine and coastal environment. At the aquarium, it offers a nice and quiet air-conditioned venue to spend an afternoon. When you enter the bar & souvenirs shop area, look for the stairs located on the left of the terrace, they will lead you to a path near the sea which will bring you to the sea turtle’s ponds. Babies and adult turtles are being taken care of there.

Phuket Shooting Range   

This is the first shooting range in Phuket. Offering variety of courses such as indoor accuracy training, outdoor combat courses. The Phuket Shooting Range is fully equipped with a variety of firearms and bullet sizes to suit all your Hollywood desires with a wide selection of guns such as pistols or revolvers, rifles or shotguns. This is a sport where one can physically measure progress towards that ultimate aim, a field in which perfection of equipment and self are essential to reach the top.


If relaxing by the beach all day is not energetic enough for you, then you may be in need of some physical training. Fortunately, there are a number of fitness centres and gyms on the Island to meet your needs, and it’s an ideal way to make sure you keep in shape while spending your holiday on Phuket’s beautiful shores. The facilities are modern and have well maintained equipment, as well as all the ancillary services (juice bars, saunas, locker rooms) that take the pain out of the gain.
