Things to Do With Kids in Phuket

The Big Buddha, one of Phuket’s landmark attractions

1. Cultural Tours

Phuket’s rich culture and history offer kids a wealth of educational opportunities. Explore Old Town Phuket and step back in time amidst the historical Sino-Portuguese buildings. Visit the Big Buddha and Karon Temple to learn about Thai religious traditions, architecture, and art. These hilltop landmarks also offer spectacular panoramas of Phuket’s bays below, perfect for family photos!

2. Beach Fun

Phuket is famous for its beaches, known for powdery sand, clear waters, and stunning views. Head to the famous beaches of Patong, Kata, and Karon to bask in the sun, sand, and sea. Enjoy a variety of water sports available, such as snorkeling, kayaking, and surfing in the Andaman Sea. These fun activities help build confidence and enhance physical skills.

3. Wildlife Encounters

A visit to a wildlife reserve is always a memorable experience for the family. Khao Phrao Thaeo Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the last remaining rainforest and is known for its gibbon rehabilitation center and waterfalls. Phuket also has several elephant sanctuaries where kids can learn about and interact with these magnificent creatures and the importance of caring for and conserving the environment.

4. Adventure Time

Head to the island’s premier entertainment and amusement park, Blue Tree Phuket, for a day packed with fun and excitement. Spend hours exploring all the attractions at the Crystal Lagoon and water park, including exhilarating Super Fly water slides, stand-up paddleboard, wakeboard, water scooter, skimboard, and Muay Talay. Kids and kids-at-heart will especially enjoy our giant waterplay Family Fun Zone. At our Beach Zone, families can play beach volleyball, beach tennis, or beach soccer.

Things To Remember When Traveling To Phuket With Kids

It’s important to consider these factors to ensure a smooth and memorable trip


Choose family-friendly accommodations that are conveniently located or easily accessible to major attractions.

Health and Safety

Make sure necessary vaccinations are up to date and have a mosquito repellent handy to protect against insect bites. The tropical climate can be very hot, so it’s best to carry a bottle of water for hydration wherever you go. Use ample broad-spectrum sunscreen or wear a hat and protective clothing to protect against UV rays when spending a long time outdoors.

Food and Dietary Restrictions

When trying the local cuisine, be mindful of the spice levels and your kid’s tolerance. Be sure to carry necessary medications if a family member has any food allergies.
