Here in Phuket with your squad or family? Enjoy a day of uninterrupted bonding at the private tour. With the given perk of having the entire vehicle to yourself, your local tour guide will be there to answer any queries you may have. Driving along the stretch of beaches, namely Patong, Karon, Kata and Rawai beach, you’ll see first-hand why many tourists and locals alike flock to the beaches first when in Phuket.
One of the highlights during the tour would be a stop at the Old Town Phuket, a string of Sino-Portuguese colonial houses. Reminiscent of colonial house from yesteryears, many of them now function as shophouses. Here, you’ll see the deep influence the west has on Phuket and also, you snag a good deal of going to two countries in one trip!
Another iconic landmark you’ll stop over at is the Wat Chalong temple, the most respected temple in the entire of Phuket. For the pious, you could take this opportunity to make a quick prayer, and if not, marvel the grandeur of this temple and also gain a deeper insight to the everyday lives of the locals.
And since it’s a private tour, feel free to arrange with your tour guide to stop at any of the beaches to enjoy the sun, sand and waters.
Enjoy during this private tour a 2 hours traditional Thai massage based on the ancient Thai medical theory. Traditional massages, heat therapies and authentic herbs are used to bring the physical conditions and spirit back to a state of balance.
If you love to soak up the rays in a festive setting, definitely make a stop at Kata beach, a surfing paradise where adventure and fun are aplenty. With clear blue waters and powder-fine white sand, the beach is known for its cleanliness and vast expanse.
If walking along the shoreline quietly as the waves crash is your idea of respite, then the Karon beach will have you swooning. A quieter beach that spells relaxation, regain a sense of zen from the bustle of the city before heading on back into the tour vehicle.
The highlight of the tour would be a ride up to Karon Viewpoint, a deck above ground that offers you an unobstructed, panoramic view of the picturesque landscape. Overlooking three beaches all at once, this spot adopts a nickname of « three beaches viewpoint ». Here, be sure to grab some selfies. Trust us, even a random shot can look like a piece of art.
The tour ends with sending you where you began, your hotel. But during the trip back, you’ll whizz past iconic landmarks and areas that are monumental to Phuket. And of course, your guide will fill you in with all the colourful details.
