Description

This tour has only recently been designed and put on sale and is already getting fabulous feedback. It is actually an extended version of the Phuket Island Guided Tour, as this tour is including a stop at the Big Buddha (if chosen) and has a duration from 4 - 5 1/2 hours. It is the ideal way to be introduced to some of the cultural landmarks, iconic beaches, sites and sounds of Thailand's largest island in just half a day. The tour is intended so that newcomers to Phuket will get their bearings, seeing the most popular sun-drenched beaches, the largest temple on the island, the Big Buddha and more. Everything, of course, is sparkling under the sun so you will definitely want to keep your camera handy!

After you're picked up from your hotel, you'll be taken to Patong Beach—one of the most popular beaches in the area. Take in the view of blonde sands framed by turquoise waters and fragmatic rock formations just offshore. From there, continue to Karon Viewpoint, where you can enjoy panoramic views of 3 beaches—Kata, Kata Noi, and Karon.

Then to the southern tip of the island, Promthep Cape, to snap photos of the breathtaking scenery of the coastline. Make your way to the neighboring Wat Chalong, one of the most venerated temples in Phuket. Admire the beautiful designs of Siamese architecture, and observe the practices of local Buddhist culture.

A further stop will be made so you can admire the magnificence statue of the island's Big Buddha if chosen. This is one of the most important and revered landmarks on the island and is highly recommended. The large Buddha Statue sits on top of the Hill between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 metres tall, can be seen from as far away as Phuket Town and Karon Beach. The views are simply amazing. While at the Big Buddha, our guide will take you inside where you have an option to pay for a marble tile, (with a suggested donation of 100 baht) for the smallest tile. Those who donate are handed a black marker to sign their name and write a message on the tile. This will used in the renovations.

Lastly, head back to Phuket Town. Pop into a cashew factory to taste and shop for nutty souvenirs, and then cruise through the streets to admire the well-preserved and historic Sino-Portuguese architecture of the city. Your outing ends at the Gems Gallery, where you can opt to stay and shop before hopping on a bus to be dropped off back at your hotel.

The guide At was great, everything you wish he'll do the best he can to come true! Excellent views to see, old Town of Phuket, Big Buddha.... I would recommend :)

3/5 Jul 25, 2019

The tour that was offered did not include Big Buddha. This tour is geared toward bringing in income to the island. Shopping, purchasing jewelry, etc. Would have been better off booking the tours with the hotel which was less expensive with more attractions included. Three stars for the driver and tour guide being hospitable...
