Parks and Open Spaces

It's not only the beaches of Phuket that offer a place to relax, there are several open spaces and parks that are ideal to take a walk at sunrise or sunset, or any time the sun is not too strong. Take a picnic, take photos or just enjoy a 'different' Phuket that a lot of tourists never get to see!
