The Real Phuket Sightseeing Tour with Cocktail
From US$81.09
Learn about the history and culture of Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, on this sightseeing tour. Visit important landmarks, such as the Big Buddha, and receive insightful commentary on the Sino-Portuguese heritage of the island. You'll discover so much more about the island culture than if you toured independently. Plus, enjoy a free cocktail from a rum factory as well as pickup and drop-off from your Phuket hotel.
What to Expect
After your hotel pickup, head to Old Phuket Town to get an idea of the island’s culture and history. Learn about its Sino-Portuguese heritage and architecture before heading to the viewpoint to snap some photos.
After a quick lunch break, visit Wat Chalong, the biggest Buddhist temple on the island. Learn about the Buddhist religion and view the 3-story complex filled with Buddha statues. The next stop is Phuket’s very own Big Buddha, which is made of marble. Then drive along the west side of the island on a beautiful coastal road before watching the sunset from the southern tip of the island. Take a tour of a local rum factory and enjoy a free cocktail while learning about the rum-making process.
End your tour back at your hotel after a day exploring the beautiful island of Phuket.
