The range of activities in Phuket for children continues to grow. Any time of year, rain or shine, you will find adventure activities, playgrounds and action tours to suit any age of youngster.

    But what fascinates toddlers sometimes bores elder siblings and vice versa so we've divided activities on Phuket up into age groups so as to get the best out of them. Here are a few suggestions split by age categories so you can find something to suit you and your clan, and maybe even find some time to enjoy yourself too.
