Why Koh Siray is special ?
Koh Sirey is an island, but you would never guess it from a map and many probably have never heard of it. Connected to Phuket town by a very short bridge, this small piece of land doesn't have many particular signs but this is where you will find the beautiful Westin Siray Bay Resort (Like many words translated from Thai, the spelling often differs).
What to explore at Koh Siray?
Beside the Westin and the temple, Koh Sirey is home to a Sea Gypsy village also known as Chao Lay. Not far behind the resort is Plylaem Seafood, a nice seafood restaurant where you can get a nice and affordable lunch before heading back to the mainland.
Don't miss the many monkeys at the bridge, the area now clearly indicated by green signs, and the monkeys enjoy the fruits regularly given by the locals.
Also on the way to the island, the fishing port might be an opportunity for a photo... it is always a bit surprising to see workers and fisherman loading ice in the sun with their face entirely cover by a hood like bank robbers.

Tips for you
This island is a beautiful place. The sand is ok, water is clear, the coast is small. But it’s quite attractive. Just because it’s not really popular to tourist, so I found it’s very quite and different compared with other tourist spot. I spent 3 hours there and that was awesome, really relaxing.
