    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Patong Beach, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    Patong Beach is the true heart of Phuket, and what makes it so attractive to many. Patong is big, bold, crowded, bright and loud. And yet millions of people flock here every year like flies on honey. If Bangkok is the Big Mango, then Patong is the Big Durian: you’ll love Patong!

    Stop At: Karon View Point, Rob Ko Road Chang Wat Phuket, Karon, Phuket 83100 Thailand

    Karon Viewpoint is one of the most frequented viewpoints in Phuket. From here, it is possible to take in views of Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beaches.
    Karon Viewpoint is not visited on the Afternoon Sunset Tour.

    Located between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches, the viewpoint is busy most days of the year and is a staple of many tour itineraries. Called locally ‘Khao Saam Haad’ (Three Beaches Hill), the local municipality for some reason has officially renamed it ‘Karon Viewpoint’. It’s located just to the south of Kata Noi Beach and looks out directly out to the Andaman Sea but most people have their cameras trained due north at the undeniably impressive eight-kilometre vista of the three west coast beaches in the background.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Promthep Cape, Rawai, Phuket Thailand

    Promthep Cape is the most South point of Phuket. The point is one of the most popular areas of Phuket and for this matter has an iconic status. Due to its location and southern facing views, it offers a picturesque view of the Andaman Sea.

    Promthep Cape is also known as the ‘God’s Cape’ and ‘Laem Promthep’.It is a rocky piece of land that sticks out into the Andaman sea. It has tall cliffs that shape the point of the most southern part of Phuket Island.
    Tourists flock here year in and year out to capture some of the finest pictures of sunsets seen in Phuket

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong), 70 Moo 6 Chao Fah Tawan Tok Road, Chalong, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    Of the many temples found on Phuket island, the Wat Chalong temple is the largest and most revered. The temple complex was built in its current location in 1837. Some remains of older structures have been found, however it is unknown exactly how old they are. The large grounds of Wat Chalong that is officially named Wat Chaitararam contains a viharn, a mondop, a ubosot, a chedi containing a secret relic, a sala and a crematorium.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Methee Phuket, 26/ 3 Surin Road, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    A tour of a cashew nut factory in Phuket is a must for cashew nut lovers.

    The Cashew nut is a native produce that is grown in Phuket and other provinces of Southern Thailand, and are relatively cheap compared to prices in Western countries.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Pass By: Old Phuket Town, Thalang Road, Talat Yai, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    Old Phuket Town, is an area of historical interest in Phuket City. The main streets of Old Phuket Town are Thalang, Phang Nga, Krabi, Dibuk, and Yoawarat. Old Phuket Town is noted for Sino-Portuguese buildings on both sides of the street.

    During the Afternoon Tour we will stop and this will be a Walking Tour for about 45minutes. Only during the Morning Tour will we pass through some streets without actually stopping.

    Stop At: Big Buddha Phuket, Soi Yot Sane 1, Chaofa West Road, Chalong, Phuket Town, Phuket 83100 Thailand

    Big Buddha Phuket is a 45-meter-tall white marble statue visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket. It is probably at the top of everyone’s ‘Must-Do in Phuket‘, and for a good reason. The views from up there are breathtaking. The statue is built with people’s donation and is still under construction. If you feel like doing something to help to finish the broad base of the Buddha, you can sponsor a piece of white marble for 300 to 1,000 baht depending on the size.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Gems Gallery Phuket, 99/35, 888 Moo 5,Chaloemphrakiat Rama 9 Road Ratsada, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    Today Gems Gallery is situated in four major cities, Bangkok, Chiangmai, Phuket and Pattaya. Phuket branch is in itself a top tourist destination, and all make it easier for visitors to choose and own beautiful gems.

    Gems Gallery is where the Morning Tour finishes and visitors have the option to stay or to leave immediately. Gems Gallery is not part of the Afternoon Sunset tour in any way.

    This is the last stop before going back to the Hotel however this is not a compulsory visit and you can leave and be taken back to your Hotel.

    Duration: 25 minutes

    Went on a gloomy day. It was an enjoyable experience but couldn't see everything as the trip was fast tracked due to the attraction closing and the weather was bad. Would better on a sunnier day non the less still recommend it.
