What to expect

This tour is designed to help newcomers to Phuket get their bearings, seeing the most popular sun-drenched beaches, the largest temple on the island, the Big Buddha and more. Everything, of course, is sparkling under the sun so you will definitely want to keep your camera handy! Choose to take a tour to see Big Buddha for a duration of 5 hours and 30 minutes or join a shorter 4 hour tour without Big Buddha.

After you're picked up from your hotel, make your way to Patong Beach—one of the most popular beaches in the area. Take in the view of blonde sands framed by turquoise waters and framatic rock formations just offshore. From there, continue to Karon Viewpoint, where you can enjoy panoramic views of 3 beaches—Kata, Kata Noi, and Karon.

Proceed to Promthep Cape, at the south end of Phuket Island, to snap photos of the breathtaking scenery of the coastline. Make your way to the neighboring Wat Chalong, one of the most venerated temples in Phuket. Admire the beautiful designs of Siamese architecture, and observe the practices of local Buddhist culture.

A further stop will be made so you can admire the magnificence statue of the island's Big Buddha, if chosen. This is one of the most important and revered landmarks on the island and is highly recommended. The large Buddha Statue sits on top of the Hill between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 meters tall, can be seen from as far away as Phuket Town and Karon Beach. The views are simply amazing.

Lastly, head back to Phuket Town. Pop into a cashew factory to taste and shop for nutty souvenirs, and then cruise through the streets to admire the well-preserved and historic Sino-Portuguese architecture of the city. Your outing ends at the Gems Gallery, where you can opt to stay and shop before hopping on a bus to be dropped off back at your hotel.
