After a scenic drive from the port to Phuket Town, this tour starts with a visit to a couple of the city’s most famous shrines. The Put Jaw and Jui Tui shrines are entwined in a Chinese temple, which showcases classic pagoda-style arches and ornate statues. Witness the bustle of a traditional marketplace as you walk back to your coach, before the driver whisks you to Wat Chalong temple. This place tops the pile when it comes to Phuket’s Buddhist temples. The outside’s an Oriental work of art, and inside you’ll find gilded statues and intricate decorations. Last up is a visit to a nearby cashew factory, where you can see how they’re processed from start to finish.
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 any temples.
