Full description
Discover the most iconic and picturesque sites throughout Phuket on this half-day small-group tour and learn about the history of Phuket whilst becoming acquainted with the local food. Your tour starts with pickup in the main lobby of your hotel, from where you will journey to the most popular sites in Phuket. Your first stop will be to Phuket Old Town, where you can enjoy this historical sight with a professional guide as you get to know Phuket's local food. You can snap pictures and explore the colorful Sino-Portuguese style architecture, such as the former Charter Standard Bank building and vibrant street art along Thalang Road. Your next stop will be to the Chalong Temple, where you can see the glistering pagoda and wax model of "Cham Abbot", who is highly respected by the people of Phuket. Many Thais come for paying respect to the abbot for good fortune in their lives. Continuing on your tour, you will visit one of Phuket's iconic landmarks on top of the Nakkerd Hills. The Big Buddha was built as a symbol of peace and unity of the Phuket people, and you will be able to see the majestic 45-meter high white marble Marnwichai style statue up-close whilst enjoying the view of both Chalong Bay and Kata Bay. Finally, you will visit a wind power energy plant situated near the Promthep Cape which is renowned for its stunning views. You will then continue to the last highlight of admiring the Karon view point on the west coast of Phuket. Don't miss the opportunity to take pictures of the view of several bays, the green mountain and the emerald sea with its turquoise water before heading back to your accommodation.

A nice tour, the guide made an effort and was very nice - we would give 5 stars for him. There is a star deduction for the time management. We would have liked some time in the old town, but unfortunately we were only there for a very short time and then we went back. But the tour is definitely worth it.

If you want a glimpse of Phuket and have half a day to spare, this is the perfect itinerary. Pam is a wonderful guide, well versed with history, architecture, and the culture of course. He waited patiently at every spot, and there was enough time to look around freely. The car ride was comfortable, and ventilated, and his song playlist was excellent ;) All in all a great half day tour. Would recommend

Pam arrived at my hotel on time and even though I was the only attendee, still took me around all of the places and provided lots of local information and history. The car was well ventilated and I was allowed to take my time at each place while Pam waited for me. Water was thrown in too. It was very hot so the 5 hour tour was precisely enough time!
