It's fantastic to hear that you had such a positive experience using Viator to arrange your Phuket city tour. The fact that your guide, Tan, was knowledgeable and provided various options and recommendations shows the quality of service you received.
Exploring the old town and having the flexibility to decide how long to spend there allowed you to fully immerse yourself in the cultural richness of the area. Visiting the Wat Chalong Temple and experiencing the beauty of the five different Buddhist temples must have been a memorable and serene experience.
The visit to Big Buddha sounds truly remarkable, with its breathtaking view, coconut milk and jelly, and the tribute to Buddha. The opportunity to meditate and witness the presence of monkeys added an extra touch of enchantment.
Taking a long drive along the coast and exploring different townships sounds like a fascinating way to experience the region. The beautiful coastal scenery must have been a sight to behold.
Returning back to your hotel in the evening, after a full day of exploration, with a sense of satisfaction speaks to the wonderful tour and the excellence of your driver.
