Landmarks and Monuments You Can’t Miss When Visiting on Flights Melbourne to Phuket

 

Wat Chalong

 

 

Wat Chalong is considered the most important of Phuket’s Buddhist temples to visit when you book Melbourne to Phuket flights.

Phang Nga Bay

After viewing the cliffs, continue the day at James Bond Island or visit the floating fishing village of Koh Panyee. Make sure to pack your camera in the luggage you’re taking on flights Melbourne to Phuket for this day trip

 

 

 

Big Buddha

 

 

The Big Buddha statue towers over Phuket and is viewed as a symbol of the city. Located atop the Nakkerd Hills, Big Buddha is 45 metres tall and can be seen from neighbourhoods all over Phuket.

While visiting the statue between your Melbourne to Phuket return flights, you’ll also be rewarded with a panoramic view over Phuket and its beaches.

 

 

 

Promthep Cape

 

 

Located in the south of Phuket, Promthep Cape is one of the best-loved spots among visitors with tickets to Phuket from Melbourne. From the cape, there are brilliant views over the ocean, which are particularly magical during sunset.

If you book Melbourne to Phuket flights for travel during the festival, you’ll spot locals having water fights with each other, and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to get involved yourself!

 

 

 

Loy Krathong

 

 

Loy Krathong is Thailand’s Festival of Lights that is held in cities across the country each November. Bodies of water are illuminated with small floating lights. The main spectacle is the thousands of lanterns that are released into the air. Locals release a lantern, and visitors with Melbourne to Phuket flights are welcome to do so too.

 

 

 

The Cost of Visiting

 

 

With an exchange rate in their favour, Thailand can be affordable for Australian travellers with flights into Phuket International Airport (HKT). While Phuket and the Thai islands are not quite as cheap as other parts of Thailand, visitors with cheap flights Melbourne to Phuket can still bag a bargain. A nice hotel in Phuket costs about $100 AUD per night. However, budget travellers can find options as low as $15 AUD. If you’re looking to experience luxury, you can find oceanside villas that are the perfect option for large groups travelling together.

 

 

While the prices in some Western restaurants reflect prices back home, you can find great deals at local restaurants after your Melbourne to Phuket flights. A meal at a local Thai restaurant can range between 150 to 250 baht ($6.70 to $11.15 AUD).

 

 

Within the city centre of Phuket, you can reach many places on foot. If you want to venture a bit further, there are public buses throughout Phuket. These small buses are called “songthaew” and cost between 25 and 50 baht ($1.10 and $2.20 AUD) depending on how far you are travelling. Tuk tuks are the popular way for tourists to travel around Phuket, however they’re more costly at about 335 baht ($15 AUD) for a ride in central Phuket.
