2 week Phuket, Thailand Itinerary with a Baby

thewelltravelledfamily Karon beach Phuket

We spent 2 weeks in Phuket, Thailand with our then 7 month baby. After visiting Thailand several times before, holidaying with a baby was certainly something different! We mixed things up by changing hotels and staying at 3 different locations on Phuket.

Day 1 – 4: Naithon Beach. We stayed at the Pullman Phuket Arcadia (super kid friendly!)

Day 5 – 10: Patong Beach. We stayed at the Avista Hideaway Phuket Patong (outside of the busy area)

Day 10 – 14: Karon Beach. We stayed at Avista Grande Karon Beach.

We were unsure about how it would be travelling with a baby to Thailand. Would it be too hot for him? How difficult is it with a baby on formula? We had so many questions but we were willing to just give it a go!

Naithon Beach

We really enjoyed how quiet Naithon Beach was! We only wished we had longer to spend at this beautiful resort and beach.

Patong Beach

When you think of Phuket, most people do immediately think of Patong. It is ‘the’ place to go if you’re interested in bars, clubs and nightlife. There is plenty to do at Patong during the day as well, but if you’re looking for somewhere quiet, relaxing and a beautiful beach – I would recommend going somewhere else – Naithon or Karon would be a better choice if you are wanting to stay at Phuket.

The best thing that Patong is great for when travelling with a family, is the supermarket inside Jungceylon Shopping Complex. You can pick up nappies, wipes and anything else you need at a much cheaper price than the local corner shops. The locals shop here!

Karon Beach

We loved it at Karon Beach as well. The hotel we stayed at was really beautiful and super relaxing. I liked that we could walk over to the beach, enjoy a nice meal or even walk to Kata Beach and enjoy a lunch or dinner on the beach.

It is a much quieter beach than Patong but busier than Naithon.

  1. Patong Beach Is The True Heart Of Phuket.Your Article Is Great Helpful To Traveling Patong.Thank You Very Much To Share With Us Your Best Experience.

    • Hi Esmee – Henry was only a baby when we visited and was only on formula at the time (which we made sure we had enough with us for the trip – just!!). Depending on what you need, you would be able to get most things from the local supermarket if you need. If you’re staying at a hotel, they might be able to accommodate something for you as well if you ask in advance!! One of the hotels we stayed at did bring out some yoghurt for Henry which was really nice of them.

  2. Hi
    I will be travelling with my 3 month old to phuket next week. I’m quite worried as this is the 1st trip for us. Also, Is it advisable to visit any island with the baby ?

    • We had no issues travelling with a baby! Just make sure you have a portable fan for the pram / poolside and take enough formula (if you’re using formula). It’s certainly manageable!!! Have a wonderful time!

  3. We are looking to go to Phuket for 6 days in December with a 9 month baby. Can we visit different islands nearby for day trips on the boat? Or would the baby be too young to be allowed on the boat?

    • How exciting! You would be best speaking with the local providers as they may have different age limits etc. sometimes they have this on the website / your information page in the T&Cs.

      Have an amazing trip!
