Top places in Phuket that tourists should visit but do not


Khaokhad View Tower
As part of our English class this month our staff were asked to talk about places that they love to visit that haven't yet been overrun by tourists.

Khaokhad View Tower – this is a very quiet spot in the South East of Phuket, 
in the Village of Borae.

Ao Yon Waterfall – this is a waterfall at the end of a twisting road and is locally known as the ‘Secret Waterfall’ – totally deserted.  There are a couple of places for a drink on Ao Yon Beach that is nearby.

Mor Mu Dong – this is a restaurant for local people and those ‘in the know’ where you can get authentic local food served next to a mangrove swamp!

the Heroine's Monument
Thalang Museum – there is a great deal of history in Phuket and here you can read all about it – don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the Heroine’s Monument.

Pat satro - a local food for Southern Thailand.
Kru Suwit or Laem Hin Seafood – fancy dinner on a floating restaurant?

Wat Phra Tong – visit the Buddhist Temple where this statue of Buddha 
is half buried in the ground, find out why…

The list goes on but this is just a blog – 
look in the next edition of Cape + Kantary for more ideas.
