Full description
Starting with a pickup from your hotel location on the island, the group will assemble in the Bang Tao beach area before departing at approximately 9 AM. Head first to Promthep Cape, the picturesque cape and lookout point known for its stunning sea views.

Next, arrive at the Wat Chalong temple and explore its three stories to see different Buddha statues on each level. Get a great view from the top floor, including of the Big Buddha statue on the summit of a nearby hill. Go to the iconic Big Buddha marble statue and watch the resident monks give their blessings to the visitors. The monument is entirely funded by offerings and you might want to leave your mark by purchasing a small slab of marble to have mounted on one of the temple's pillars.

The next stop will be at the old city of Phuket Town for a walking tour where you’ll stop at the local tourist office to hear about the history of the Sino-Portuguese architecture in the city. Enjoy a quick coffee break at a scenic viewpoint before you continue on your way to Rang Hill viewpoint, the well-known hilltop site with a park and terrace offering sweeping views of the town and offshore islands.

End the day with a visit to the local rum distillery in Chalong, where the rum is 100% organic. Try one of their refreshing signature cocktails before the drive back to your hotel when tour finishes around 5-6 PM.
