With a vast display of natural scenery, picturesque landscapes, and a wide range of opportunities for unforgettable experiences, it’s no secret that Phuket is the perfect destination for adventure seekers.

Thanks to the way it’s naturally built and how it’s packed with activities to enjoy, anyone can travel to this beautiful island and never run out of opportunities to explore the area. Regardless of whether you explore by foot, car, boat, or TukTuk, it’s safe to say that any journey in the entire province will always be nothing short of memorable. At the same time, many believe that exploring Phuket by motorbike is the way to go.

Why the motorcycle is the best choice for exploration

Often regarded as the best form of transportation to go on an exploratory adventure, the motorcycle provides an unhampered experience of freedom when traversing the entire island. Let’s face it: the wind blasting through your hair, the sun on your skin, and nothing but you and the open road ahead—what could possibly be more adventurous?

As opposed to other types of transportation that are quite limited when it comes to exploring the entire island, motorcycles can reach even the most remote spots. Regardless of whether you’d like to check out Pa Tong Beach or pay a visit to the Sunday Walking Street Market, a motorcycle can take you anywhere on your terms and at your own pace.

Activities to do with two wheels

Given the fact that Thailand is a motorcycle-dominant country, it should come as no surprise that there are a variety of activities in Phuket that are patterned around their use. If you’re looking to visit Phuket sometime soon in pursuit of an adventure unlike any other, below are a few motorcycle-themed activities worth giving a shot:

Motorcycle tours

A particularly-unique activity that anyone can enjoy as soon as they get to Phuket is the island’s wide variety of well-acclaimed motorcycle tours. With a tour operator or two on nearly every corner of Phuket offering various packages, you’ll never run out of options that would be exciting.

The average Phuket motorcycle tour only comes in a day-trip option and is comprised of four to five different destinations with ample food and souvenir breaks in between for a well-balanced experience. If you’re looking for an immersive experience that covers your entire stay, however, then there are also special four to six-day custom tour packages that take you around every noteworthy spot on the island! 

Solo bike at your own pace

If you’re looking to embark on a very unique two-wheeled experience around Phuket at your own pace, then doing a solo run is definitely the activity for you. 

With no more than a map, itinerary, a rented motorcycle, and an unhampered sense of adventure, solo runs are by far the most adventurous way to know Phuket inside and out on two wheels. Best recommended for explorers who want to go by their own terms and experience every single destination, going on a solo adventure allows you to enjoy your trip as a local and run into a variety of unique experiences along the way!


Going on a two-wheeled adventure is one of the most memorable ways that you can possibly explore the island and go on an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime. Looking for a place to stay after your long adventures? We’re a resort in Phuket, consider booking your stay with Kalima Resort today!
