Tips for Visiting Phuket in February

February is in the high season for tourism in Thailand.

It is also often the time for the traditional festival of Chinese New Year, which happens in late January or early to mid- February (Feb. 9, 2024), when large numbers of Chinese tourists visit Thailand, as they have a 7-day holiday.

Attractions and resorts can expect crowds of people and long queues. At the same time, hotel rooms and flight tickets are sold out quickly and the cost of travel is much higher than in the low season. If you are visiting Phuket in February, be prepared for the crowded conditions and be patient.

Top Things to Do in Phuket in February

Here are some of the things you can do in February:

1. Walk on the Golden Sands of Kata Beach

Kata Beach

As one of the three main beaches of Phuket, Kata Beach is in a pleasant bay. It is one of the more peaceful beaches on Phuket, much less crowded than Patong Beach.

The soft and white sands of Kata Beach attract many visitors, though. It is very popular with families as a place to spend their vacation, because there are many great restaurants, and varied accommodation options, which are all close to the beach. Read more about beaches of Phuket.

2. Take a Boat Tour to Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay

A good way to discover the seascapes of Phuket is by a boat tour. There are many fantastic caves and lagoons in Phang Nga Bay. The best way to explore the caves and lagoons is by taking a canoe or sea kayak to navigate around the dramatic limestone islands. You can also have a rest on the quiet beach of Phang Nga Bay.

3. Go Diving and Snorkeling at the Similan Islands

Similan Islands

If you are interested in snorkeling and diving, then the Similan Islands should be on your list. The crystal blue waters and the fascinating corals attract numerous tourists from all over the world. It is easy to encounter a variety of tropical fish and swim with big turtles under the water. Read more about the Similan Islands.

4. Visit the Big Buddha of Phuket

Big Buddha of Phuket

As one of the most popular attractions in Phuket, the Phuket Big Buddha is a must-visit attraction for many tourists. Located at the top of the Nakkerd Hills, the 45-meter-high white Buddha Statue looks radiant on sunny days. At the summit of the hill, you can have a bird's-eye view of Phuket Island.

5. Wandering around Phuket's Night Markets

Phuket Night Markets

The night markets of Phuket are a good place to experience the local lifestyle and see the real Phuket. You can meet the locals, seek out affordable buys, and taste Thai street food. If you feel tired after shopping, find a Thai massage shop, and relax yourself.
