Donations at Wat Chalong, Phuket Town
Phuket Island is more than beach, rock and sun. There is no need to proceed to other places far away to enjoy a great nature and multiple cultural landmarks. For your convenience we propose a choice of excursions we explored ourselves.
They are customized for those of you who wish to be independent of commercial organizers, who do not want to be picked up and returned at / to the hotel at a certain time and do not want to join a group of unknown people.
The other side of the coin: You must drive yourself a rental car or a rental motor bike or use local busses or taxis.
ECO Guesthouse may help you in preparing your own trip.
