This excursion will provide an exciting and comprehensive taste of the rich and colorful culture of Phuket. Begin with a drive through Phuket Town, with its delightful turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese buildings and elaborate Chinese and Thai temples. After a scenic drive along Phuket's southern coast, the first stop is Promthep Cape. Located at the extreme south end of the island, Promthep Cape appears to be a simple rocky hill with no immediate interest. However, once you climb the steps to the top, experience a stunning view of the perfect half-moon bay of Nai Harn Beach and the scattered islands dotting the Andaman Sea. Back on board the coach, drive to Wat Chalong, the largest and the most strikingly ornamented of Phuket's 29 Buddhist monasteries. Its intriguing history features a monk believed to have formidable healing powers. To this day, Thais from all over the country flock to Wat Chalong to pay homage to the monk and regain their physical and spiritual powers. From there, proceed to the Phuket Orchid Garden and Thai Village, located on an old tin mine site, with a tranquil lakeside setting and beautiful garden of lush exotic orchids. During an elaborate performance, you will be charmed by Thai Classical Dances, with performers dressed in opulent costumes and intricate head pieces made of sparkling gold and colored stones. The drumming of the thaporn or Thai drum, and the sweet melodies of the phee, a Thai flute, will carry you further into the past. Enjoy a thrill to the complex style of Thai boxing. Following the show, a short stop is made at the souvenir shop before return to the ship.

Please note: Modest dress is required in the temple.
