    scuba diving @ Shark Point

    by schwein Written Sep 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The diving in Thailand is great.

    Warm water, good vis, and an abundance of things to see.
    I've been before, and will come again...

    We did 5 dives over two days this trip (King Cruiser wreck, Shark Point, Koh Dok Mai, Koh Rachayai) with Shark Point being the highlight. No shark, but saw eels, boxfish, a bearded scorpionfish, an octopuss, and many other cool things...

    Will definately do a liveabord in the Similans next trip to Thailand.

    Equipment: I hooked up with www.seaking-diving.com / West Coast Divers before leaving.

    A small operation, but has qualified, good instructors.
    We got a great deal, with two of us doing our AOW through them for 11,000B each, including all books, equipment rentals for the equipment we didn't bring, and transportation/meals.

    Motorcross Phuket

    by shane_02 Written Feb 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I came across this motorcross circuit at Phuket. It is situated near the Friendship Beach.

    However, for those who knows where Diamond Hill Resort is, the circuit is along the same stretch of road.

    Unless for some events being organized there, this motorcross circuit is normally quiet and peaceful. You have all the space and freedom to exercise your skills.

    For scrambler lovers, you can easily rent a bike at the Patong beach.

    Muay Thai

    by stiab3 Written Jan 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Muay Thai or thai kickboxing is very popular in Phuket. There are about 2 or 3 places in Patong Beach alone where you can see fights. It's great fun and on a typical night you can see fighters as young as 8 years old all the way up to the professionals. And if you like a flutter, it'll make the event even more interesting . . .

    Equipment: If you actually want to participate, there are places where you can do that too . . . no special gear needed.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    REAL RIFLES AND LASER GUIDED PISTOL!!!

    Yes, that is one of the range of guns you can choose at Phuket Shooting Range.

    It's fun and it's a real gun. But the sound is really deafening.

    If i rememeber correctly, 780baht for one round of 10 bullets.

    Takraw

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 24, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Takraw, or kick volleyball, is a sport that seems popular around South East Asia and it closely resembles volleyball.

    The main difference is that they use a rattan ball and players are only allowed to use their feet, knees, chest and head to hit the ball over a net.

    I asked to join in with a game across the road from my hotel and the local lads cheerily obliged. But they were way too skilful for me!

    Thai Boxing

    by lindyz Updated Oct 9, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thai boxing is obviously very popular in Patong. There is a HUGE stadium near Bangla Road in central Patong and there are cars driving around the streets every day with boxers on board and giving details of when the next fight night is on! Plus many stalls are selling the silk boxing shorts, so it is obviously very popular.

    Riding at Rawai

    by susu77 Updated Oct 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can take a ride of 1, 1½ or two hours. Prize was reasonable. There was just me riding with the smily instructor who wanted to discuss about everything but couldnt speak any english. We ride thrue settlement, on rawai beach and in jungle and gumtreeplantation. Galloping on a beach was almost a bit too exiting for me. Beach was quite dirty than year 2005 not so long after tsunami but year after it looked ok. Well, its not the nicest beach of Phuket but good for riding.
    Unforgettable experience!

    Dive Koh Doc Mai and Phi Phi islands

    by trisanna Updated Aug 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went diving with Santana diving (which were great) and went on three dives, two at Koh Doc Mai and another by an island (Koh Bida Nok) off of Phi Phi Le. As it's August and their off season. During this time, it may be better to dive Racha Yai, since it's sheltered. Where we dived, there was a little bit of current. Very rough around Phi Phi islands. Got really banged up trying to get into the boat. Visibility around 10 meters or so. Saw lionfish, shrimp, scorpion fish, large colorful schools of fish. Beautiful large pink sea fans at Koh Doc Mai. The highlight of the dive was seeing a gentle and stunning leopard shark, which swam right up to us. A cobia fish accompanied the large shark, which is rare, since they usually swim with whale sharks. Sadly, we didn't see any whale sharks.

    Diving and Snorkeling

    by trisanna Written Apr 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are some nice dive and snorkeling sites around Phuket. The best are the Similian islands. Since it's a while away from Phuket -it's best to do a live aboard- so you can get a bunch of dives in.

    Around Phuket, for diving you can dive on the king cruiser wreck. Other sites include: Shark Point and Anemone Reef. There is some snorkeling around phi phi islands.

    Unfortunately, there is a lot of dead coral.

    Dive Racha Yai

    by trisanna Written Jun 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did a day trip from Phuket to Racha Yai. It's a hour or hour and half boat ride to this island. Even though we went during the monsoon season-the visibility was quite good. Both dives were around 18-20 meters. The first dive we saw an octopus, moray eels and lots of fish. Very healthy coral. Second dive we saw a small wreck. Went with South Siam divers, http://www.southsiamdivers.com/
    They did a good job was suspicious at first due to the large number, but after our first briefing by the top divemaster, he divided us into small groups-usually 4 to 5 people per group. Very professional and friendly. Their boats have air compressors on board-so they could fill the tanks and you wouldn't mess with your bcds and other equipment.

    Snorkelling and Scuba Shops in Phuket

    by machomikemd Written Nov 2, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    there are tons and tons of scuba and snorkelling stores and booths in and around the phuket area and if you arrived at Phuket with your complete snorkelling or scuba gear with you luggage, then you would not need to get into these shops. the shops offer the usual snorkelling and scuba gears for rent like flippers at 100 baht, diver's suit at 500 baht, snorkelling gear at 300 baht and they also sell assorted products like beach slippers, swimming trunks, mailottes, goggles, sarongs, beach hats and more. just be sure to bring extra cash as some of these shops don't accept credit cards and other accept credit cards but with a 3% surcharge.

    Equipment: all the snorkelling and scuba gears that you may need and some more items like board shorts, sun block, shades, flip flops and more.
