What to Expect
Give yourself a cultural and scenic treat on this day trip to Phuket with departure from Krabi. Take in Phuket Island's natural beauty as you are driven along hill and beach roads. This tour gives an insight into the highlights of the 'Pearl of the Andaman'. It also includes a leisurely drive around Phuket Town to view the Sino-Portuguese style buildings. Other attractions visited are Wat Chalong - Phuket's most beautiful and renowned monastery - and the famous sunset viewpoint at Promthep Cape, one of the most beautiful panoramas on the island.
Get picked up from your hotel in Ao Nang or Krabi Town, and ride by private minivan through the mountainous Phang Nga province - famous for its evergreen limestone hills. Arrive at Phuket Old Town, the historical district. Admire Phuket’s Sino-Portuguese buildings, built more than 100 years ago. These buildings portray Thai characteristics and heritage, although architecturally they are a mixture of Chinese and European styles. Enjoy a scenic view from Khao Rang Hill, a great viewpoint, to Phuket Town and to the southern part of the island. Some of the offshore islands can be seen by going to the top of Khao Rang Hill, on the city’s northwest. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (not included in the price).
Continue to Wat Chalong, Phuket’s most beautiful and renowned monastery. It enshrines the gilt statues of the monk hero Luang Pho Chaem and his assistant Luang Pho Chuang, both much revered by local people because of their roles in quelling the miner rebellion in 1876. Finally, head to Phromthep Cape, the island's southernmost point, with its spectacular view of the sea and offshore islands. Afterwards, drive back to Krabi where you will arrive at your hotel at approx. 16:00.
