Full description
One sensation of Phuket is the Big Buddha. Build up from white marble the statue is rising up to 45 m high and 25 m wide into the sky. It is visible from almost every point of the Thai island. A must-see for every tourist – that is why the Big Buddha is your first stop in the south of Phuket. You will reach him at about 3 p.m. and enjoy the best view over Phuket. Then, around 1 hour later, you will arrive at the weekend market. Its official name is Naka Market. It is the biggest one in Phuket. Some people say it equals a hidden treasure full of shopping opportunities and culinary delights. Here you will find a wide range of souvenirs, clothing, shoes, bags and DVDs. And if all that shopping has made you hungry? Then you should taste and gourmandize yourself through the numerous Thai delicacies that Naka Market has to offer. Experience a lively and fascinating day in Phuket till you head back to Khao Lak at around 19 p.m.

The trip was nice, even if the return trip from/to the hotel took 2 hours each. The view of Phuket from the Buddha is beautiful. The Naka market is really big, with a lot of clothing, bags, jewellery, all kinds of food and unfortunately also small dogs, cooped up in tiny cages... I would have liked to have avoided this sight, but otherwise I would definitely recommend it.

We found the tour very nice! The first stop was the Big Buddha, where we had 45 minutes to explore everything. There was also the opportunity to have a drink on site. Then we went to Phuket Naka Market. Here we had almost 3.5 hours to explore the market. There are shopping opportunities and a variety of delicious Thai specialties. Everything went smoothly with the transfer. We would recommend the tour.
