Phuket Trip: 5 Things To Do In Phuket (Halal Food Included)

Phuket is a such a wonderful country to be in, from the food to the beach it was a calm 4 days 3 nights after a long hour of work. Therefore, if you're planning to travel to Phuket, I hope you get to experiences the same things too or better. So, here are my list things to do in Phuket!

1. Anantara Vacation Club Mai Khao Phuket Relaxing Stay

Normally when my family and I went travelling, our accommodation is just for us to rest after long hour of walking. But, it's different for Phuket because our main target is to rest at our stay because we didn't have any plan to discover other things at first.

There are so many things to talk about Anantara Vacation Club in Mai Khao Phuket. Therefore, I already write a standalone post about 5 things that I do and love about the accommodation, so click here to read more about it.

2. Halal Lunch at Jungceylon Mall 

Actually, you can easily find Halal food in Thailand and that include Phuket. So, on the second day we decided to roam around Patong area by booking a taxi. I don't remember how much it was but I remember that we get to spend 3 hours around Patong area. 

The first thing that we did when we arrived is getting a lunch. When the taxi arrived in front of the mall, that's where we have our Halal lunch. On the ground level, there are 3 stalls that provide Halal foods (with certificate) and so many food choices that will make you drooling.

So, we ordered at Siam Thai Food a simple tom yam, vegetables, and a soup. For deserts, I decided to get the mango sticky rice. It was simple but delicious lunch I've ever had.

3. Ice cream at Patong Beach

Patong Beach is a really famous destination, and we decide to check it out by staring at the beach only. It was an interesting journey along the way to Patong Beach because I get to see how Bangla Road looks like. Although it was still in the morning, I can see tons of foreigners and locals grab some alcoholic drinks and chill.

If you're looking to do some activities in Patong Beach, there are so many things to do! One of them is grab an Ice Cream Rolls. I always looking forward to try a food that originate from its own country even though there are available in Malaysia. 

So, when we walk and see there are ice cream rolls located opposite side of Patong Beach, it's time to try it! With just 100 Thai Bhat, you get to choose the base (vanilla or choc.) and 2/3 condiments to add the flavour to it. I choose vanilla, banana and Oreo and it was a full-filling ice cream to eat especially you get to see how it was made from A-Z.

4. Canoes Around Pha Nga Bay With Andaman Sea Kayak

The most looking forward activity is this big fella where we are on the sea all day long. At first, it was either visiting Pha Nga Bay or Phuket Town and the answer was there all along. 

Our journey cost 3,300 Thai Bhat (Adult) and 1,650 Thai Bhat (Child 4 - 12 y/o) per person. If you were convert into MYR, it might looks expensive but I would recommend it because it's a child friendly. Although you will do tour around the island by canoes but if you have baby, you can stay on the cruise.

Other than that, all the food are Halal and staff on the cruise are muslims too! Along the way, you can always grab some drinks, fruits or snacks to munch with. For lunch, they cook a large Ikan Masak Manis Thai and various of dishes to choose from. Bravo!

The most awesome things are the entertainment! I'm pretty sure Bas makes all of us laugh our heart out from beginning till the end because I did. Overall, it was a really memorable day, all the view, sunset and up closed to each Island just makes it the best time of my life.

5. Just Roaming Around Turtle Village 

When we stay at Anantara Vacation Club I can say that the area is quite private. So, when there are one or two spots that we can discover aside Anantara, it would be great. Honestly, there aren't much things to do, but my favourite would be Turtle Mart. 

I know it's a bit weird to choose grocery store but I love the mart! I do admit it was a bit pricy but they got everything you ask for. But, this is my opinion and if you have one I respect yours 😸
