Adventures Await!

Phuket isn't just about lounging on the beach (although there's plenty of that, too!). Phuket caters to all interests with many activities and tours on offer - so you will never run out of things to do as a solo traveler. Rent a motorbike and zoom through the island to explore hidden beaches, walk around the old town and try all the delicious street food, go kayaking to explore hidden coves, learn the art of Muay Thai kickboxing, or visit an ethical elephant sanctuary. Regardless of your vacationing style, solo traveling in Phuket is fun because there is an activity for everyone. You will also find many tours specifically designed for solo travelers so you can explore with a like-minded group and make new friends.

Making New Friends is Easy

One of the best parts of traveling solo is connecting with new people and learning about new cultures. Phuket is a social hub, and you're bound to meet fellow adventurers at your hotel, local cafes, or during group activities. Strike up a conversation with your neighbors at breakfast, join a cooking class, or book a group day trip to the islands – the opportunities to connect are endless!

Where’s The Best Place To Stay?

Did you know Phuket has over thirty beaches? It can be confusing when deciding which beach area is the best place to stay as a solo traveler. However, it is important to remember that each part of Phuket can offer a different experience. Patong Beach is famous for its nightlife, and Old Town is a popular choice if you want to learn more about the culture. 

Karon Beach, however, is an excellent place to stay for solo travelers in Phuket. It’s well-balanced—you get to enjoy a stunning beach that is water-activity friendly, ample nightlife to keep you entertained, and serene spots for when you want a relaxing time to simply sunbathe or read a book. It is also near major attractions like the Big Buddha statue and Karon temple market.
