Things to do - Phuket/Phi-Phi from an expert.

Firstly - this website rocks!

I am planning to spend 4 days around phuket including phi-phi in mid June 06. Can anyone recommend good half, full or 2-day activities and would I have to book that online prior to arrival over there? Is it advisable to hire a scooter/bike to travel around phuket considering I am neither reckless nor careless.

I am travelling with a friend from Samui and would are interested in outdoor activities like elephant treks, snorkelling etc.

I still haven’t planned anything am also looking from experienced travellers on pointers of how long should a savvy traveller should spend out of 4-5 days in either phuket or phi-phi province etc.

Thanks again.

Hi vikumar,

Welcome to Travelfish and glad to hear you like the site!

In Phuket and Phi Phi there's no need to book tours and trips in advance -- most travel agents will run stuff like elephants riding and snorkelling trips on a daily basis.

One of the most popular options out of Phuket is Sea Canoe trips into Phang Nga Bay -- there are a lot of providers, with John Gray Sea Canoe remaining the original and one of the best.

From Phi Phi most do a day trip to Phi Phi Leh (where The Beach was filmed) and "around-the-island" snorkelling trips.

No shortage of ways to fill a few days!
