6 Most Instagrammable Places You Should Know About in Phuket

With a vibrant mix of urban, beach and jungle, Phuket really offers some of the best Instagram locations to spice up any account. In this article, we will look at a mix of beach chic and Old Town locations.

Nestled in the throng of shophouses and cafes along Yaowarat Road in Phuket Old Town. This quirky Harry Potter themed cafe and bar offers a novel black and orange menu brimming full of amusing and tasty snacks, drinks and fresh coffee, and of course, no discerning wanna-be Wizard or Witch would be without a large jug of Butter Beer. All decked out inside to imitate the famous pub from JK Rowling’s series of magical award-winning books, expect to marvel at a backdrop of enchanted artefacts, broomsticks, crystal balls, wands and ghoulish hilarity! The backdrop for selfies and colourful photos for your feed is bountiful – not to be missed, if only for the sheer fun factor!
Located next door to the newly refurbed ‘The Memory at On On Hotel’ on Phang Nga Road, this sweet spot is decked out in velveteen high-back winged chairs and a colourful home-made ice-cream counter display to die for! By day Lady Coco is a cozy spot for a coffee and dessert, or afternoon tea with bubbles, whilst taking full advantage of the comfy pink, red and green sumptuous sofas and chairs to rest weary shopper’s feet. As night sets in, Lady Coco is reminiscent of an art deco-inspired bar, with a flow of champagne, glitzy cocktails and beautifully presented cuisine all against a backdrop that exudes opulence and art. Snap away at some of the petite dishes including the pretty ‘Scallops Vermicelli’ and ‘Tuna Tataki’ and be sure to imbibe the party atmosphere – allowing plenty of opportunities to photograph the stylish Phuket Town crowd and the classic musicians present to entertain.
New kid on the influencer’s radar – Feelsion Café, on Phuket Road, has so many rustic twists and vintage turns that the opportunity for interesting photos is somewhat endless. If you can wade through the beautiful people draped over the stunning floral displays, head over to the cake display where an assortment of Japanese, Western and Thai inspired desserts will tempt your tastebuds as well as make a colourful post! The Lime Meringue Cake is so very pretty. With an eclectic array of benches, tables, plush settings as well as basic, this is an Instagrammers dream! Don’t forget to visit the bathroom – the mirrors, lighting and tiles are just as fabulous!

Grab a double whammy Insta spot by having a sunset cocktail at this spectacular beachside restaurant. Situated on Kamala Beach, not only will you have an array of very colourful dishes to photograph if you’re more of a foodie poster, you can walk 3 metres to the uber-chic Twinpalms MontAzure hotel, where a triangular infinity pool offers one of THE best backdrops for that all-important beach and pool shot. As with all Instagrammable destinations worth their salt, the hotel and Shimmer both have swings, and not any old swings, these ones are super decorative and photograph superbly, guaranteeing a touch of old-fashioned style and glamour to any photo. Enjoy!

The Grand Dame of beach clubs in Phuket if not Thailand, Catch is still going strong as the go-to place for leisurely brunches in the sun and a party hot spot, attracting some of the biggest names on the house music scene. Selfie opps galore with an azure blue backdrop of Bang Tao Beach and the contrast of the bright-white oval bar area with its twinkling array of rosé wine bottles and chrome make a stunning setting for photos that will create envy and desire in all your followers! Complete with photogenic cabanas (and a swing…of course), we think Catch is more a place to capture snippets of the good life, with awesome food and a flow of effervescent bubbles – you can catch more followers by photographing this beach club for sure.
Don’t ever underestimate the stunning architecture of hotels to enhance your photo feed! Twinpalms offers a blend of old-style Thai wooden salas, with metropolitan grey and one of the most Instagrammable pools in Phuket. Indulge in a day by the pool and get those bright blue shots to liven up your Instagram account, hang around for sunset and you won’t be disappointed you waited! Added bonus to visiting this great resort is that Surin Beach is a mere few steps away and that also offers some of the best seaside locations in Phuket, with crystal clear water and rows of palm trees.
There are simply hundreds of amazing locations in Phuket to enhance not only your photography skills but your own social media presence, we hope that this small selection will give you some inspiration whilst you are in Phuket.
