Getting married in Phuket

Phuket offers a captivating blend of stunning natural beauty, rich culture, and vibrant nightlife. Situated in the country’s southern region, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and is known for its idyllic beaches such as Patong, Kata, and Karon. This makes it a paradise for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts.

Beyond the coast, the island boasts a variety of attractions including historical sites in Old Phuket Town showcasing Sino-Portuguese architecture and cuisine, as well as lush forests and cultural landmarks.


Phuket is world-renowned as a popular destination to tie the knot, and it’s easy to see why. With its unique blend of rich cultural heritage and luxurious amenities that cater to a wide range of preferences combined with the island’s stunning beaches, serene sunsets, and lush tropical landscapes, Phuket is a perfect backdrop for your celebrations whether you are planning something intimate and sentimental or grand and bombastic.

Once the ceremony is over and the celebration starts, you and your guests can explore Phuket’s dazzling nightlife through Bangla Road, where street performers such as fire-spitters, samba dancers, and magicians are scattered all around. You can also visit bars and restaurants serving exquisite seafood, go elephant riding at the many sanctuaries Phuket has to offer, or take a ferry to the Phi Phi Islands and visit its tropical paradise with its swaying palms, white sandy beaches, and turquoise seas.


With options ranging from coastal to mainland activities, there is no shortage of things you can do in Phuket.

Bangla Road: Booming with live music and brimming with parties, Bangla Road stretches for 400 meters and is the heart of Phuket’s nightlife scene. There, you’ll find bars, restaurants, and a variety of entertainment options.

Old Phuket Town: Celebrated as a historical gem for its Sino-Portuguese architecture that reflects the island’s rich cultural mosaic shaped by Chinese, Indian, European, and Muslim settlers, Old Phuket Town showcases beautifully preserved shophouses now repurposed into charming accommodations, quaint cafes, gourmet dining spaces, and eclectic souvenir shops. If you’re looking to sample the multicultural charms of the town, there is a large market and walking street organized every Sunday between 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm along Thalang Road.

Phi Phi Islands: Situated in the Andaman Sea, 46 kilometers southeast of Phuket, the Phi Phi Islands are a chain of six islands in Southern Thailand offering a vibrant nightlife with dozens of restaurants and bars decorating the beaches and exotic marine life that calls for snorkeling and diving. To get to the Phi Phi Islands, you can choose to either travel directly by plane from Phuket or take a ferry or speedboat to enjoy the ocean ambiance.

James Bond Island: Renowned for being the place where the James Bond movie “The Man with the Gold Gun” was filmed, the island is also a popular destination for sailing and kayaking with beaches filled with stalls and stands selling souvenirs mostly made of shells and wood.

Elephant Sanctuaries & Trekking: Creating a compassionate environment for rescued elephants, these sanctuaries are dedicated to the ethical treatment of elephants, providing them with a safe haven where they can roam, bathe, and socialize freely in their habitat. But if you are feeling adventurous, you can opt to go elephant trekking where you’ll be guided around the habitat, all the while sitting on one of these large mammals.

The best time to be in Phuket is between November and February when the weather is just about perfect to hold a wedding. A little later between March to June is Thailand’s summer season, and it might be too hot for some. You can expect windy weather and thunderstorms from July to October which is the rainy season, so it is important to time it all just right if you are planning an outdoor ceremony.
