Phuket is well known for its beaches and its luxurious hotels and resorts. What is not so well known for is camping.
I’m sure many of us grew up camping with our families and have some great childhood memories of what camping is all about. Camping was also a popular activity for Thai school students and for foreign backpackers long before the buzz word ‘ecotourism’ came into existence. That’s because it is the cheapest accommodation to be found. Perhaps not as comfortable as staying in a hotel, but camping is simple, easy and gets you much closer to nature than other forms of accommodation.
If you want to relive those childhood memories and you enjoy real camping experiences with a simple, friendly, traditional and sociable atmosphere, in a natural environment, then check out Phuket Andaman Camp.
Phuket Andaman Camp gives you a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket’s main tourist destinations and to enjoy the outdoors in all its simplicity, in a beautiful natural location in the heart of a delightful island.
Nestled high in the unspoiled hills of the Vichit district, this small and friendly run family camping accommodation is ideal for those who seek peace and tranquility in the sights and sounds of Mother Nature. Phuket Andaman Camp offers a unique camping experience among luscious and exotic plants and wildlife with unparalleled panoramic seascape views.
Phuket Andaman Camp was prides itself on being an “Eco Camp”, where natural materials have been used wherever possible, concrete has only been used where absolutely essential and the water supply is taken from high up in the mountain beyond the camp.
If you don’t have your camping gear with you, don’t worry, Phuket Andaman Camp offers 9 private ‘Ready to Camp’ pitches. Each pitch includes a 2/3 or 4/8 berth pre-erected tent, ground mats, blankets, pillows & towels, small private patio area with table & stools & individual lighting & electricity.
Before turning in to your tent for the night, enjoy the magical glow of a campfire. A glowing pile of logs makes the perfect setting for good, old-fashioned, late-night storytelling, or strumming a guitar. It keeps the midges away, too.
A stay at Phuket Andaman Camp certainly won’t break the bank; the cost is currently only 600 baht per person and this includes breakfast and dinner. If you opt not to eat then it is only 450 baht per person and children under 12 years old stay for free.
