Visit the hilltop ´Three Beaches´ viewpoint where you can take in a great vista of the beautiful bays of Kata Noi, Kata, Karon and Kho Pu Island, at one of the island´s best scenic spots.
This tour gives an insight into the highlights of the ´Pearl of the Andaman´. It also includes a leisurely drive around Phuket Town to view the Sino-Portuguese style buildings. Other attractions visited are Wat Chalong - Phuket´s most beautiful and renowned monastery, a Cashew Nut Factory where you may sample the culinary delights on offer and the famous sunset viewpoint at Promthep Cape - one of the most beautiful panoramas on the island.
Phuket plays host to a wonderful mix of nationalities who have chosen to live here: it has Thais, Chinese, Malays, Indians and Nepalese, a young and growing Eurasian community and a unique mix of Hokkien Chinese and Thais called ´Baba´.
The Baba community´s heritage can be seen in Phuket´s Old Town in its architecture, commerce, dress and way of life. The core of the Old Town essentially is made up of five roads and several ´sois´ (small streets), these are Rasada Rd, Phang Nga Rd, Thalang Rd, Dibuk Rd, and Krabi Rd. This quarter teems with history and after years of neglect is currently being renovated.
