Phuket Island just like a person has its heart. The heart is as it is supposed to be located on the left side. It is a special place with its unique rhythm, its own characteristics, and its own temper. You should definitely get to know it better.
Many tourists are intimidated that the city has a lot of one-way streets, but traffic is slow, typical to Thai cities. There are plenty of good informative signs and clear street signs that will allow you to quickly find your way around the city.
Now Phuket is a resort area, with its essential parts and trappings – beaches, shops, massage parlors, night bars, bargaining with taxi drivers and everything else. And all these has a past, a beautiful past, where different religions and nationalities were mixed, where there were wars and celebrations, where manual labor prevailed, where the clock on the city tower was a real attraction.
The city is like a museum that can tell you how people used to live work and spend their free time. Have a seat at one of the numerous local eateries and regulars will be happy to share with you some interesting tales.

The island is located 3 km from Rawai beach. It is also called Khao Kaeo Pitsadan. If you have been to Cape Promthep you probably noticed a bright yellow pagoda on the island. The island is famous for the fact that at the water's edge there is a stone with a footprint of the Buddha. There is also a monastery on the island.
The island can be reached either by a long-tail boat with a motor or by a canoe. The latter, we think, is a much more exciting way to travel. The nearest place to rent a canoe is Yanui Beach. Canoe costs 100 baht per person. A round trip to the island and back plus a walk around the island will take 2.5-3 hours. Don’t forget to bring a sunscreen cream and a waterproof bag.
Beaches on Phuket are all open to the public with one exception when access to the beach goes through private property. Lounge chairs are usually 100 baht per chair per day.

Nai Harn is set midway between the West and East coasts of Phuket and away from main tourist areas that makes it popular among expats and locals.

There are many Thai restaurants located along the beach. Behind the beach, there is an inland lake that connects with the sea by a small stream. Tides create shallow sandy pools along the stream making it popular with families with young children. The lake is surrounded by a fence and a sidewalk that is perfect for jogging.
