Enjoy an exciting and comprehensive taste of the rich and colorful culture of Phuket. Begin with a scenic drive along Phuket's southern coast to Promthep Cape. Experience a stunning view of the perfect half-moon bay of Nai Harn Beach and the scattered islands dotting the Andaman Sea once you’ve climbed the steps through the rocky hill.
You’ll visit Wat Chalong, the largest and the most strikingly ornamented of Phuket's 29 Buddhist temples. 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.
Continue to the Phuket Thai Village located on an old tin mine site with a tranquil lakeside setting. 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. A short stop is made at the souvenir shop before return to the ship.
