Thailand has been a dream of ours but many people said it was too exotic to bring kids. Of course, we didn’t listen and we are glad we didn’t. Here’s how to spend 3 days in Phuket with kids (or without)!

When flying from the United States flights directly to Phuket can be quite expensive. We avoided this by getting a flight deal to a country that has cheap flights to Phuket.

How to Get to Phuket with Kids

There are so many choices on where to stay in Phuket. After much research we chose The Vijitt Resort Phuket in Rawai Beach. The resort was gorgeous!! It was in a quiet area and had great amenities.

Where to Stay in Phuket with Kids

The Vijitt Resort is a great option for visiting Phuket with kids with to the amazing child amenities they offer. There is a kids club with a kids pool and playground.

We relaxed at our private pool in our villa recovering from our 24hrs of flying. In the evening we ventured to Chalong Pier and had dinner at Kan Eang overlooking the water.

Day One: Vijitt Resort Phuket, Chalong Pier, & Kan Eang

Day Two in Phuket with Kids: Coral Island and Phuket City

We went to Phuket and we didn’t go to Phi Phi Island!!! Why? Phi Phi Island is a 2hr ride from Phuket by speedboat.

Wat Chalong Temple

We left the beach around 11AM to head back to the hotel and explore the city. We hired a taxi for $500 baht per hour who took us to lunch, Chalong Temple, Old Phuket City, Patong Beach area, and the Karon Viewing Point.

Day Three: Private Phang Nga Bay Tour of Big Buddha, James Bong Island, and the Monkey Cave

We did this tour through Easy Day Thailand. It was fully customized private tour so we were able to add anything we wanted as well as skip whatever we wanted.
