Tiger Park and Restaurant
111/88 Moo 7 Kathu, Kathu, Phuket; 076 323 311; www.tigerkingdom.net
An opportunity to get a close-up of these amazing Indochinese tigers of different ages and sizes. All tigers are raised and tamed since the first day of their life by experienced trainers. In the park you can touch, pat, and play with tigers of any age. The smallest tigers are very cheerful and they like to play with visitors. Tigers in Tiger Kingdom are not drugged or tranquilized. If you gently stroke a cat, it will feel ticklish and irritated, especially to a sleeping tiger. The best method is to cuddle and stroke the cat firmly to make it feel comfortable. There are two restaurants inside the part where you can enjoy your lunch, with an amazing view of tigers.
Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Buffet lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Starts at THB 800 for big tigers and at THB 450 for buffet lunch.
Love Andaman Tour
Love Andaman provides tourists with wonderful, rare, and safe snorkeling trips. From their private piers, they will take you on a smooth ride in their motor yachts or in brand-new speedboats to experience breathtaking sights, super fine white sand beaches, and crystal-clear ocean waters with exotic wildlife.
Take a Trip to Koh Mai Ton
This beautiful, hidden island in the Andaman Sea is just off Phuket’s south coast, a 15-minute speedboat ride from the pier. On a day tour you will be able to bask in the island’s unspoiled beauty, as well as enjoy some action by snorkeling with a stunning variety of fish and coral before feasting on a fresh buffet lunch of seafood and other treats.
Bliss Beach Club
Perfectly blending Phuket country and beach life, and melding vintage with modern, Bliss Beach Club carries guests on subtle, laid-back walk from midday sunshine, to twilight, and into the haze of a perfect Phuket night. Go past the shaded car park from the discreet entrance, ascend the spiral staircase, and presto! You are at Bang Tao Beach’s pearly white sands while beyond, the Andaman Sea’s pristine waters stretch to the horizon.
