Bang Pae Waterfall

Picnic facilities are available to members of the public. The entrance fee is 200 baht per person, but it’s a magical place to spend the New Year with someone special.


The Big Buddha

Standing tall at 43 metres, the Big Buddha of Phuket is one of its most famous attractions. Expect it to get very busy during sunset, when the photo opportunities are indescribable. The Buddha is noticeable from various parts of the island and when staying at condominium rental in Phuket, you won’t have trouble getting to it via taxi, bus or tuk tuk. If you’re staying in a  desirable location, you could even walk. Follow the red signs if you are not sure where to locate the tourist attraction.


Coral Island

The locals would refer to Coral Island as Koh Hae and if you plan on organising a trip to this great snorkelling spot, be sure to explore both of its beaches – Banana Beach and Long Beach. Snorkel to get a glimpse at the colourful coral reef and when the sun sets on New Year’s Eve, lie on the sand and watch fireworks set off from afar, before retreating to your condominium rental in Phuket. Avoid making a bonfire or fire on this beach though, because it welcomes hundreds of tourists every day and therefore the area should be kept clean.
