DescriptionGet an authentic insider's look at Phuket Island and its highlights on a hassle-free sightseeing tour with some free time for lunch. Following pick-up from your hotel at around 11:00-11:30, head towards the old city of Phuket Town. Stop at the local tourist office to hear about the history of the Sino-Portuguese architecture in the city, and enjoy a quick coffee break at a scenic viewpoint before you continue on your way. Benefit from a lunch break at around 13:00 (own expense), before visiting the largest and most famous Buddhist temple on the island. Upon arrival at the Wat Chalong, explore its 3 stories to see different Buddha statues on each level. Get a great view from the top floor, including the Big Buddha statue on the summit of a nearby hill. Go to Phuket's iconic Big Buddha marble statue, and watch the resident monks give their blessings to the visitors. The monument is entirely funded by offerings and you might want to leave your mark by purchasing a small slab of marble to have mounted on one of the temple's pillars. Journey along the scenic coastal road on the west of Phuket Island, and stop at a viewpoint to take some stunning photos. Arrive at Laem Promthep at the southwestern-most point of Thailand by 17:30, just in time to catch the amazing sunset. This takes place between 17:55 and 18:20 year-round in Thailand. End the day with a visit to the local rum distillery in Chalong, where the rum is 100% organic. Try one of their refreshing signature cocktails before the drive back to your hotel at around 19:30.
