InterContinental Phuket Resort
A beautiful morning in Phuket is always a real pleasure. You can start with a dip in the ocean and follow it up with breakfast. Perhaps a day-trip or short visit to some of the islands nearby are more enticing. Mornings are filled with exciting possibilities!
After lunch, take a walk around Old Phuket Town to marvel at the dynamic, heritage architecture. You could take a tour around the island or enjoy some shopping in the many stores, markets and even malls in Phuket. Try the street food in this diverse melting pot of cuisines and cultures.
A traditional Thai massage at our spa would be a nice way to round off a day of exploration. Dinner by the beach is always a highlight and you can enjoy the food at any one of our fantastic restaurants. A few drinks at the bar, soaking in the soulful Kamala sunset, is fun way to cap off a long day taking in lovely Phuket.
Phuket's Natural Landscape
Everyone loves the beaches (and there are more than 30 beaches in Phuket to enjoy) but did you know that 70% of Phuket is actually covered by mountains? In fact, one explanation for the name "Phuket" is the word "bukit" or "hill" as it is known in Malay. So if you like the hills as much as the beach, you are spoilt for choice.
Unique Historical Architecture
As an island perched between important trading nodes of India and Eastern Asia, Phuket has always had a mixture of communities from all over the Asia and parts of Europe. The Sino-Portuguese architecture of Phuket represents these cross-cultural aesthetics perfectly.
Local Thai Culture
Thai people are friendly and hospitable. Greet them with a 'wai', by placing your palms together with fingers pointing up and bowing gently. Most Thais are Buddhist and when you visit a religious place, dress semi-formally with full-sleeve and knee-length clothing.
