Day tours in Phuket are a great way to explore some of the most popular tourist attractions in Phuket Thailand. Phuket, itself is very spread out and cannot be explored in a day. The tours are designed keeping in mind that visitors get to see most of what Phuket has to offer to the visitors.
During my last visit to Phuket, I spend a couple of days in the off-peak season (October). The rain is quite frequent during this tie of the year. Unluckily, the day I picked for the day tour was a rainy one. I decided to take the tour despite the rain.
The tour van arrives at the hotel reception by 8 am. Most bookings for the tours are finalized a day in advance for the operators to arrange for the tour managers and transport etc. Generally, most tours are very well organized and managed in a professional way.
A typical day tour includes a visit to the following locations in Phuket
1. Karon Lookout
2. Big Buddha Statues
3. 1-2 Temple locations
4. Old Phuket Town
5. Honey Farm / Cashew Nut Farm
5. Diamond and Jewellery Showroom
A day tour cost is about 500 Bhat on average. A visit to the Tiger Kingdom and the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary has an extra cost.
