Full description

Snap cool photos at the vibrant Romani Street in Phuket Old Town and see most beautiful landscape over Phrom Cape on this full day tour with an expert local guide. Enjoy the luxury of a hotel transfer service.

Start the day’s adventure with a visit to two of the most famous sites on the island. The first stop is Chaithararam Temple or Wat Chalong, the largest and most sacred temple in Phuket. Check out the bone fragment of Buddha.

Listen as your guide shows you the local way of making an offering to the monks. Wander around the temple, taking in the decorative walls and ceilings that depict mosaics of Buddha’s life. Then head over to the Big Buddha, named for the large 45-meter 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 Phuket’s Old Town. Don’t let the name fool you. The old town of Phuket is known for its vibrantly colored, century-old Sino-Portuguese houses. Explore Soi Romanee, one of the most famous streets in the old town. Next, head on over to Nui Beach, where you can enjoy a delicious lunch before making your way to Rock Swing to take some photos on a swing. Enjoy stunning views of the Andaman Sea and the lush greenery of the island from Cape Krating. Next up is Ao Sane Beach, also called Jungle Beach. You’ll have some free time to rest and relax, snorkel and swim, or even take a quick hike uphill to Cape Krating, which also holds amazing views of the sea.

To end the day, head to Promthep Cape and take photos of even more seascapes and gorgeous views to memorialize the day’s adventure.

Very nice tour with a super nice guide. You can see really great corners of Phuket. We were on the road for 10 hours, but unfortunately we couldn't go into the sea on a beach due to currents. However, 10 hours is a very long time in this climate. However, a short stop at elephants was not our thing, as they are chained and could hardly move.

Above all, it is essential to fully enjoy the day to master English. Indeed, Noi gives a lot of information. She is passionate about her country. She took us to heavenly places like Nui beach, a private beach, not very touristy. we were also able to go downtown and see the status of the big Buddha. Negative point, if you are outside the city center, you will have to pay for return transport at the end of the excursion (100baths per person)

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Tour guide Joyjoy and driver both incredibly friendly and informative. Managed to fit quite a few different things to see into one trip without feeling rushed. Beaches and views amazing. Lunch at Nui beach very relaxed, and the stop at Phuket old town gave time to sample coffee and ice cream or shop. Would highly recommend this one to people wanting to see a few parts of Phuket in a short space of time.
