Phuket Int. Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The largest of Thailand’s islands, Phuket has long been one of the country’s main tourist draws. The best thing about getting a rental car on Phuket is not being tied to your corner of the island and being able to access everything that the tropical destination has to offer. With that in mind, these are three of Phuket’s most interesting attractions:

  • Phuket Town. The main settlement on Phuket is probably the best place to start exploring the island. This cozy town charms visitors with its well-preserved Old Town which shows clear Portuguese influences,impressive Taoist temples, and the Khao Rang hill which provides great views of the rest of the island.
  • Cape Panwa. This idyllic area in the southern part of the island is naturally known for its beautiful beaches and high-quality resorts frequented by international movie stars, but also attractions like the Marine Biological Research Centre and Phuket Aquarium. Even if you’re staying in another part of the island, Cape Panwa is worth a day trip’s visit.
  • Phra Thaeo National Park. Significantly developed and built up over the last few decades, Phuket doesn’t have much of its original rainforest remaining. That being said, Phra Thaeo National Park (sometimes also called a wildlife sanctuary and non-hunting area) in the central part of the island is a corner of green known for its Gibbon Sanctuary and scenic waterfalls. Those craving more challenging jungle treks can find them in the nearby mainland nature areas of southern Thailand.
