Phuket’s location is in tropical zone and so it has only two seasons: summer and rainy. Surely, you will not be able to enjoy the main enjoyable activities like swim, snorkel, dive, Jet Ski and so on. But, please do not feel upset if that happens, Phuket still has so many interesting activities for you.
Relaxing with Spa Treatment and Massage
If you are already at spa resort, you might feel very fine with the unexpected rain. However, if you are not in the spa hotels or resorts, you can find very wonderful ones easily. There are good spa shops in many beaches mainly Patong, Kata, Karon, Pansea, Chalong, Rawai and Bang Tao. The spa shops offers massage, facial treatment, body scrubs, and other nice treatment. For traditional massage, it costs only from 300 THB or around 10 USD. Ask your hotel receptionists, I am sure they are oriented with information about the spa shops to recommend you.
Watching Muay Thai
Have you ever watched movie ‘Ong Bak’? Now, it is time to experience real fighting art of Thailand. Please check our webpage of Thai Boxing for details. This is very exciting activity for a rainy day.
