Rainforested and challenging to hike, Phuket is a southern province and island in Thailand, one of the country’s biggest isles. Not only is Phuket home to high-end spas and resorts but it also provides a high class of hostels. Hostel communities are friendly and lend a homelike atmosphere to your Phuket adventures, explorations, and treks.

Explore a Cave by Canoe

Besides hiking, you will also want to take a cave tour by canoe. This type of tour is offered in the popular Phang Nga Bay, just northeast of Phuket. This is one of those experiences that you cannot enjoy anywhere but Thailand. Not only is the water calming but you will never forget the limestone cliffs that jut upright out of emerald green waves. Some of the famous areas in the bay include Koh Panyee and James Bond Island.

Another place to visit while in Phuket is Phi Phi Island, famous for its featured role in the movie The Beach, which debuted in 2000. Again, sheer cliffs welcome boaters and intrepid adventurers to Phuket. You cannot enjoy these sights, however, if you don’t make reservations at one of the well-known and well-liked Phuket hostels. Reserving a room in the right hostel will make your time exploring, hiking, and touring more enjoyable.

Types of Hostel Rooms

To save money, you can choose to sleep in a dorm-like space that is clean and spacious or opt for a private room with your choice of bed sizes — deluxe king and deluxe twin or king and junior twin. All the rooms feature free WiFi, non-smoking accommodations, AC, shower and hair dryers, LED TVs, in-room safes, and toiletries.

If you book one week ahead of your planned stay at a backpacker hostel, you will receive additional savings and a discount. Because Phuket is one of the leading beach locations in the world, you can be assured that you will be situated close to the water, sand, and all the fun watersports activities.

You can also enjoy amenities such as a co-working space for the mobile entrepreneur and a Thai boxing class for the fitness buff. You can also savor breakfast foods all through the day and evening. For example, if you come back from a long hike and are famished, you can enjoy bacon, eggs, and orange juice far into the evening if you wish.

Inquire at the Tour Desk

Needless to say, you can find many activities to keep you occupied during a trip to Phuket. Make sure that you stay at a hostel that features a tour des, so you can easily navigate to various parts of the island. Just stop by the tour desk and check on activities such as full moon parties, walking tours, snorkeling, and island hopping.

The best way to make sure that you stay at the right hostel is to select a hub location somewhere in the heart of Patong beach so you are not far away from relaxing, boating, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling.

Once you determine the location, go online and schedule a reservation. Find a hostel that offers shower rooms, cool-down rooms, and amenities such as 24-hour laundry services.
