I will be spending 4 days around Phuket and was just wondering whether anyone had any good ideas of where to go. I have already been to Phi Phi and Patong Beach and would much prefer to do something different. Has anybody been to anywhere really good close by? The only real restriction is the time period of 4 days due to flights.
Thanks very much
Perhaps this website might have a few options worth considering.
As you already been to the beaches so you can also enjoy the world class diving at Andaman sea and most daring you can also enjoy the eco adventures in tropical forests.
You can also enjoy the speed boating trip to the surrounding islands and the nightlife at patong beach.

Atv quad bike riding, Thai boxing, Phuket zoo.. There are heaps to do in Phuket just wait to you get there and see what tickles your fancy
The gibbon rehabiliation centre is worth a visit from Phuket.
Hat Karon is a nice area to stay in if you are looking for an alternative to Patong.
I made the mistake of going to Phuket, assuming that Phuket is a small island... Apparently the beaches that they have been marketing for decades is light years away from the town.
I don't advice you to do Phuket zoo, it's a terrible thing, the animals are not good treaten... I advice you to check this website, the trips are very different than the speed boat trip and you will enjoy your day!
You can also go to the night market (Saturday and Sunday evening) where you can find everything and much cheaper than Patong, Karon...
Go diving! It's cheap and amazing. You might even see a whale shark.
