There’s no time wasted on this tour, as you start with one of Phuket’s top-rated sightseeing spots. You’ll drive right to the island’s south-eastern corner, before making your way to the tip of the Promthep Cape. This spit of land delivers pinch-yourself views of the Andaman Sea, so make sure you’ve got your camera to hand. The A-grade itinerary takes you to Wat Chalong temple next – one of the grandest Buddhist places of worship in Phuket. You’ll have time to look around the colourful halls and gardens, and your guide will fill you in on its history. Last on the agenda is a visit to Phuket Botanical Garden. Among the hand-sculptured hedges and exotic statues, you’ll find waterfalls trickling into a tree-shrouded pond.
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.
