Vacation makers travelling about with their little ones and children will want to avoid the dodgy night spots and crowded streets lined with girlie bars. Steer clear of those bustling areas, and veer towards these family-friendly spots in Phuket:
If you are looking for a family-friendly spot, Kata is a good bet. Considerably less hectic compared to Patong, it also offers a good selection of dining options. Families keen on avoiding noisy nightspots and girlie bars should stay away from the beachfront, where Club Med is located, as well as Kata Road.
Travellers hungry for a bite will not go wrong with having a meal at Bluefin Tavern, for a variety of Mexican, American Tex Mex and local Thai dishes await. Another spot perfect for a hearty meal would be Anchor Bar. Apart from dishing out an excellent English breakfast set and serving up food in generous portions, the bar also offers plenty of entertainment options, such as a pool table, live sports channel on TV and live music. Families in the mood for winding down the night on a relaxing note may remain at Anchor Bar for drinks and beers, while those with energetic young ones in tow may make a visit to Dino Park Mini Golf.
Round off your day by taking a leisurely stroll along Kamala Beach. Go local by dining at one of the casual restaurants lining the beach front. Once you have been satiated with a delectable meal, start making plans for the rest of your night.
If reggae music, a friendly atmosphere and charming ambience is what you seek, make your way to Bob’s Bar. Another family-friendly option is Elvis Rock & Roll Bar, where you can expect to dine on a spread of international and barbecue dishes. Expect nothing less than a series of vibrant performances throughout the night, for a live band and Elvis impersonator will work up the crowd. Vacation makers who have not visited Phuket FantaSea should definitely venture over to catch the dazzling performance available daily.
Quaint Phuket Town is home to a good selection of restaurants and entertainment options. After a sumptuous feast, venture to CS Bowl Centre Entertainment for a night of family fun. Film buffs will want to catch up on the latest films at SFX Coliseum or the Coliseum Paradise Multiplex. Thai and international movies are available at these two cinemas, but movie-goers will find a greater selection of movies offering English soundtracks at SFX Coliseum. Holidaymakers keen on gaining and insight into the lifestyles of the locals may explore the lively scene and shops at Phuket Town Night Market.
Fill up your rumbling tummy with a mouthwatering dinner at 2gether Restaurant & Bar, taking your pick from an extensive menu containing Swedish, Italian, French, Australian and Thai dishes. The hearty portions of the meals served at the restaurant are sure to leave you well satisfied.
After dinner, walk off the calories by taking an exploratory stroll through Karon Temple Market. You will find rows of stores hawking a wide array of goods, ranging from t-shirts and swimsuits, to handmade souvenirs and street food. Shopaholics who have not had their fill of shopping may proceed on to discover the maze of stores in Karon Bazaar.
