Panoramic Phuket

Approximately 4¾ Hours
Moderate Activity  Panoramic tours 

Here’s an ideal opportunity to see some of the finest sights Phuket has to offer from the comfort of an air-conditioned motor coach. A local guide keeps you fully informed as you pass a kaleidoscope of villages, temples, mosques, markets and beaches. Your panoramic drive takes in the city’s graceful atmosphere, and you will glimpse exterior views of old Sino-Portuguese-style buildings, the local market, and the Chinese shrine. You’ll have an opportunity to walk among the buildings to admire the decoration of ‘the dragon within’ concept. Next, head north passing the Two Heroine Monument, built to commemorate two Thai women who saved Phuket from a Burmese invasion in the 18th century. A short stop here allows you to have a closer look at the two ladies. Watch for the island’s biggest mosque at Bang Tao Village—living proof of three major communities living together in harmony. The next sector involves a drive along the coastal road passing Surin, Kamala, Patong and Karon beaches. You will also see Chalong Temple—Phuket’s most sacred place of worship—with an unusual layout for a Buddhist temple.
