Book a morning or afternoon departure, and after pickup from your hotel or a central location in Phuket, set off by air-conditioned minivan with your guide.
On route, hear about Phuket’s history, and how the Old Town was built on the wealth of tin mining in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Explore the Old Town, strolling down Thalang Road, one of the oldest roads. Discover the street’s colorful past as you pass 19th-century Sino-colonial houses, quaint cafes, and shop-houses. Admire the buildings’ carvings, and swing by Dibuk Road, known for its Chinese-style houses and vintage shops. Enjoy time to peruse the wares, including artisanal clothing, artworks, and knick-knacks.
Next, visit Wat Chalong, the largest of Phuket’s Buddhist temples. Admire the richly decorated temple with its Grand Pagoda, and explore the buildings, filled with gilded Buddha statues, wall paintings, and shrines.
Continue to the Karon Viewpoint to drink in Phuket's beautiful location. Take in the far-reaching westerly views over the Andaman Sea and Koh Pu (Crab Island), and gaze out over three of Phuket’s white sand beaches: Kata Noi, Kata, and Karon.
Relax, take photos, and absorb the panoramas here before your tour finishes at the starting point.
