Itinerary
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.

The views from up there are breathtaking. The statue is built with people’s donation and is still under construction.

This was our first visit to Phuket and we found this tour great to see the main attractions. We had plenty of time at each place to get a good look around. Our guide was excellent and shared a lot of the history of the places we went to. Highly recommend this tour

We had to wait nearly an hour and a half to be picked up for the tour because the driver ‘made a mistake’ and forgot to pick us up. Once we were on the tour it was quite a nice day, just unfortunate it was a bit of a rubbish start.
