What To Expect
In this trip, you are going to explore the best highlights of Phuket including views of its most famous beaches on the island. Along the way to the center of Phuket city, you will pass by the Western side of the island, with the beautiful Karon, Kata beaches, and one of the biggest party capitals of Asia - Patong beach.
Once arrived in Phuket City, we will roam around the historical streets of Phuket town that feature an exciting mix of old and new architectural structures. You will not be able to resist the charm of gorgeous buildings with the influence of Sino-Portuguese architectures.
Next, we will visit a local pearl workshop named Pearl Farm & Pearl Shop, a family business that has attracted visitors from all over the world. With up to 100,000 oysters bred annually and over 50,000 pieces of pearl jewelry designed by the talented hands of the local workers. We will also stop by the Wang Talang, a gem lapidary factory, where you can see the different Phuket gemstones of various values such as rubies, emerald, sapphires, diamonds, gold, and how they are cultivated.
Our next stop is Wat Chalong, the largest and most revered Buddhist monastery in Phuket. Here you will learn the stories of the monks Luang Pho Chaem and Luang Pho Chuang, to whom Wat Chalong is dedicated, as you walk past the gilt statues and step into ornate pagodas.
We will head to the Big Buddha Mountain. With an average than 1,000 people pay a visit to the place each day, it is one of the must-see attractions on the island of Phuket. Despite such popularity, the surrounding atmosphere still offers visitors a feeling of peace thanks to the soft sounds of tinkling bells and dharma music.
After that, you will be taken to Phuket viewpoint, where you can enjoy a breathtaking sight of the crystal clear blue waters and the golden bay of Kata Noi, Kata, and Karon beach.
The trip ends with a stunning sunset at Promthep Cape. This site is probably the most well-known symbol of Phuket at the southernmost point of the island. Don't forget to take out your camera and capture this moment!
