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.

The tour is well done, our guide Bee was great!

We were picked up punctually from our accommodation in the morning with a fresh Thai breakfast. Since there was only one other person besides us, our guide could explain everything to us in peace and take time to answer our questions. Lunch was delicious. Only in Phuket Old Town would I have liked to have had more time. Thanks to Bee for the wonderful day

Our guide Goi and our driver, Wut were super nice and professional people. Goi was real informative, funny and good at English. Wut came with both sodas, water and cloths to cool off with. We also got a bag with chips and water. Don’t worry about walking around getting too hot - you switch between sitting in the ventilated car and visiting amazing viewpoints. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone!
