What To Expect

Patong Beach
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!

Karon Viewpoint
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.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong)
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.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Methee Phuket
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.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Old Phuket Town
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.

• Admission Ticket Free

Big Buddha Phuket
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.

Excellent way to see the city!

This was such a fun and easy way to see the major tourist hotspots. Our tour guide Yo was absolutely incredible the whole day, she was very professional, funny, and knowledgeable about the locations. Our group had a great time joking around with her. The sights were so beautiful and lots of great photo opportunities!
A great way to see Phuket easily.

A great way to see Phuket. We saw so much, Woody our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and told us about the different bays; leading to the most southern point of Phuket, about Buddhism, and about Old Town Phuket. Woody also gave us time to explore with out him which was a lovely gesture. We loved old town Phuket with all the bespoke shops etc, we even found a lovely cafe with delicious ice cream sandwiches and mocktails.
Thumbs up!

We took a private tour with IAsia. The Guide Swutty met us at the hotel at 8:30 in the morning and proceeded to take us around the island. He was so informative and was so passionate about the island and also the company. We visited several viewpoints, a cashew nut factory, the big Buddha, and a wonderful temple. This was a great morning out and lasted well over five hours
