Full description

Join a local guide to explore Phuket's highlights and hidden gems on this full-day tour. Take a guided walk in Phuket Old Town, visit Wat Chalong and the Big Buddha, discover the best local viewpoints, and enjoy time to relax on Ya Nui Beach.

First, head to Phuket's Old Town, known for its vibrantly colored, centuries-old Sino-Portuguese houses that will transport you to a different era. Stroll along the streets, take in the sights and sounds, and explore Soi Romanee, one of the most famous streets in the Old Town. Up next is Chaithararam Temple or Wat Chalong, the largest and most sacred temple in Phuket as it houses a bone fragment of Buddha. Wander around the temple, taking in the decorative walls and ceilings that depict mosaics of Buddha’s life. After taking in the glory that is Wat Chalong, head over to The Big Buddha, aptly named for the large 45-meter-tall alabaster statue of Buddha sitting atop a hill. Snap some photos of this famous landmark as well as the surrounding scenery before making your way to Nui Beach. Once at Nui Beach, you can take a breather and enjoy a local lunch (at your own expense) before making your way to Karon Viewpoint to take in the breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea and the island's lush greenery.

Head to Ya Nui Beach next where you can spend some free time resting and relaxing, snorkeling, and swimming. To end the day, you’ll head to Windmill Viewpoint and Promthep Cape to take photos of even more seascapes and gorgeous views to memorialize the day’s adventure.

The tour of tours! If you are in Phuket do not miss this tour - absolutely amazing! You basically get to do everything - swimming and snorkelling on a wonderful remote beach, visit the big Buddha and meet with a monk, visit a temple, see a number of highlights and end in Old Town Phuket for the perfect meal, sightseeing and shopping. And top of all, Kim, our guide - absolutely perfect! She was so full of information, kind and engaging, made the tour attendees a real group which brought even more joy to the sightseeing. It was our last day in Thailand and we could have not asked for a better day - and massive praises to our guide for that. Easily said - totally recommended!

We were unlucky because the rain was hard during our tour but it doesn’t discount the fact that the places were beautiful. Special shoutout to our amazing guide Maria of TripGuru. She speaks english very well and she is very professional. We would like to have this tour again in the future. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Our Guide Anek was really nice, he gave us a lot of information and we had much fun. We saw so many places in such a short time. Since our group was so small it was really individuell and fun. I would definitely recommend, if u wanna see the culture, landscape and food by an origin.
