You’ll get picked up at the port in the morning, and your driver will make a beeline for one of Phuket’s top attractions to kick things off. The Wat Chalong temple’s one of the grandest and most-visited religious sites on the island, and you’ll have free time to look around the impressive interiors. Next, you’ll get to see how one of Phuket’s signature products is made at a cashew factory. Spend time exploring the cultural melting pot of neighbourhoods in Phuket’s old town, then hop onto the bus for a panoramic drive back to the port. On the way, you’ll pass the Heroines Monument – an homage to two of the city’s bravest ancestors – the sprawling Mukarrom Mosque Bangtao, and the picturesque beaches of Surin and Kamala.
You’ll need to dress modestly when visiting religious sites. Knees and shoulders need to be covered, you’ll also need to take off your shoes before entering the temples. Besides the stop at the Wat Chalong Temple, the majority of the sights are seen from the coach.
