Phuket – Grand Expeditions on Land and Sea
Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is an inspiring destination that is teeming with diverse cultural experiences and entertaining highlights. After you check through immigration, you will meet your private limousine transfer and journey to Surin Beach. Here, you will stay at a premier 5-star resort, which will be just a minute’s walk from the shore. Your accommodation will exude opulence with its harmonious architectural design and first-class amenities. The professional staff will welcome you with friendly smiles and direct you to your extraordinary penthouse. Fit with your own private rooftop pool, your stay in Phuket will be the perfect island retreat.
On the evening of your first night, revel in a marvelous gourmet meal with ocean views. You will catch wafts of fresh seafood cooking on the grill as you sip on elegant cocktails. Peer out at the horizon, and you will witness the sun slowly give way to the night, and as it sets, the sky turns crimson and shares a picture-perfect backdrop for your delectable dinner. The following day, you will meet your expert tour guide, and discover many intriguing facets of Phuket’s rich culture and rugged landscape as your guide imparts valuable insight along the way. Wat Chalong is an immaculately-kept, gold-adorned temple that glistens under the sun. As you uncover its deep history, you will be filled with great admiration for the peoples’ spiritual practices. Afterward, you will set off to the majestic Big Buddha where you will encounter a momentous 112 feet tall statue of Buddha that towers over the entire island. You will capture unforgettable memories with uninterrupted vistas from the heights of this viewpoint. Your tour will culminate with trips to idyllic beaches, and you will feel worlds away as you dig your toes into the soft white sand and wade in the glimmering azure waters.
To conclude your adventurous stay in Phuket, you will transfer via private speed boat to the Similan Islands for an impressive Scuba diving experience. The archipelago boasts some of the most magnificent diving destinations in Thailand. Accompanied by professional guides every step of the way, you will feel completely safe as you swim amongst schools of hundreds of fish and encounter rainbow-colored coral reefs. You will laze around on the pristine beaches before you return to Phuket later this evening. Your final few hours in Phuket will be spent at a premier culinary school. In the morning, you will venture to an authentic market nearby in search of desirable fresh ingredients where you will feel the buzzing energy around you as you weave through the elaborate stalls.
