Soak up the view from the Big Buddha, admire Wat Chalong Temple, and explore the buzzing Phuket Town. After being picked up at your hotel, you’ll have the chance to take in the natural beauty of the island as you drive along scenic beach roads. Stop at a famous viewpoint, taking in incredible panoramic vistas of Phuket's coastline. Admire the aqua-blue sea meeting the lush green rainforest trees which make Phuket a tropical paradise. A highlight of your half-day tour is a visit to the Big Buddha. one of the most revered landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 meters tall, it can be seen from as far away as Phuket Town and Karon Beach. The lofty site offers the best 360-degree views of the island, with sweeping vistas of Phuket Town, Kata, Karon, Chalong Bay, and more. Explore the statues and intricate mosaics which adorn the site, and keep an eye out for cheeky monkeys lurking in the trees. Next, you'll visit Wat Chalong, Phuket’s largest temple where locals and tourists alike go to pay their respects to late, revered monks, including Luang Pho Cham and Luang Pho Chuang. Admire the beautiful artworks adorning the temple walls, and the peaceful grounds surrounding the site.

Your friendly guide will share how these blessings cleans karma, create happiness and breed good luck as you watch monks chant, sing and pour water in celebration.
