The question is not that one gets bored, the problem is to find enough time to enjoy all attractions that the island offers. You can spend a day on one of the snow white beaches, sun tanning, drifting in the clear, warm water, snorkeling along the coast, meeting new people, taking a snack in one of the many small stalls at the beaches, enjoy a massage or just watch the busy folks at the waterfront.
Or you can pass an afternoon in one of the pools of the larger hotels reading a good book, tasting one of the delightful tropical cocktails and just be lazy. Excursions and activities are infinitive at Phuket. Like for example an island roundtrip visit to the colourful town market, a butterfly garden, Buddhist temples, nature reserves with waterfalls and rain forest, and trips to the Mainland or to the many islands surrounding Phuket. The active sportsman can dive, sail, waterski, paraglide horse ride or play tennis or golf. Also, the night activist will find his pleasure in one of the many bars, pubs or beach stalls or enjoying a show of international standard at Simon Cabaret or Fantase.
