Full description

Discover the most iconic and picturesque sites throughout Phuket on this half-day tour and learn local history from your guide along the way. Snap pictures at locations like the Karon view point and the charming streets of Phuket's Old Town.  

Starts with pickup in the main lobby of your hotel and relax on on your way to the first stop in Phuket Old Town. Discover Sino-Portuguese style architecture, such as the former Charter Standard Bank building and vibrant street art along Thalang Road.

Find out where the locals like to eat before heading 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. 

Continue on the top of the Nakkerd Hills where the Big Buddha statue was built as a symbol of peace and unity. Marvel at the majestic 45-meter high marble, Marnwichai-style statue up-close while enjoying the views of both Chalong Bay and Kata Bay.

Go to a wind power energy plant situated near the Promthep Cape which is renowned for its stunning views. Finally, take in the views from the Karon viewpoint overlooking the west coast of the island and the sea before heading back to your accommodation.

It was amazing, organized from the pickup from your hotel till the drop off. The tour guide was really friendly, kept calling my name when I wander off. You meet people from different nationalities. He’s so fast while talking, but he’ll be more than glad to answer any questions you have.

Interesting activity that allows you to see certain corners of Phuket. Interesting guide, attentive, speaking perfect English. Magnificent views of the region, very interesting discovery of the Big Buddha. Passage a little too fast at Wat Chalong, visit far too fast and less interesting museums and suddenly far too little time in the historic center of Phuket. Damage.

The trip was nice, but there was another route without us being informed. Booked was Big Buddha + Phuket Old Town + Cashew Farm. The new route was Karon View Point + Nai Harn Beach + Big Buddha + Phuket Old Town. That was also a really nice tour, but we were not informed about the change and waited until the end to visit the cashew farm... Suddenly we were dropped off at the hotel again and were quite surprised. Anyway, thanks for the nice trip :-)
