Have the basics covered before you land in Phuket; resorts that are SHA+ certified and follow strict health protocols like Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas offer safe accommodation right by the beach. Such properties also feature dining options, spas and excursions which will add to the convenience and trustworthiness factor.

Diverse Adventures

Solo female travel is a chance to step out of your comfort zone and enjoy new experiences. These can include zip-lining amidst verdant jungle terrains at Flying Hanuman, traversing off-road trails on a bicycle or ATV or diving in the Andaman Sea; you can also embark on boat excursions to Phang Nga Bay and the Similan Islands.

Fun Things to Do

There’s never a dull moment in Phuket no matter what your interests may be from learning Thai culinary secrets at a cooking class to Muay Thai martial arts training! Animal lovers can visit the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary while culture enthusiasts can attend the Siam Niramit Phuket show. For a night of partying, Bangla Road in Patong is the place to go.

Spa Pampering

Taking a trip alone to Phuket is a great time to enjoy rejuvenating spa rituals and find your inner bliss. Resort spas are ideal for this and provide plenty of holistic healing with a variety of options; these can include bespoke massages (try a Thai warrior massage!), chakra crystal balancing, Ayurveda therapies, beach yoga and more.
