Seven wonders of Phuket
Do you remember the seven wonders of the world? Great Pyramid of Giza, hanging gardens of Babylon, statue of Zeus etc. Well it’s time to show you the seven wonders of Phuket.
Big Buddha is 45 meter tall white marble statue visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket. Views from the top of the statue are truly breathtaking.
Tourists can make donations, buy amulets and the occasional ceremonies are held in an area around the statue.This place also serves as a museum narrating the history of the Big Buddha.
Wat Chalong Temple
The Wat Chalong is an undeniably beautiful Buddhist temple. The aesthetics are truly breathtaking; a beautiful structure with hues of red and gold all over.
Majority of Thais are Buddhist which explains Big Buddha and the temple. Locals come to pray and tourists come to learn something about Buddhism.
As with all religious temples, there are codes that must always be followed. These are some for the Wat Chalong Temple.
1. Shoes are never allowed inside a temple, so be sure to leave yours outside with all the others.
2. Women are required to cover their shoulders and wear pants or skirts that extend down to their knees.
3. Certain level of respect is expected, Speak in a quiet tone within the temple and don’t touch the statues or other Buddhist relics.
Phang Nga Bay
Nature’s artistry can be fully seen at the Phang Nga bay. In the way the limestone karsts project out of the green waters. It is the perfect place for day activities. With quiet beaches and boat tours, kayaking and canoeing to partake in.
Karon beach is a popular tourist destination in Phuket. It is the third longest beach in Thailand, the sands are powdery and the water is calm.
It is adjoined to a town so there are malls , restaurants and arcades for tourists to try out.
Karon View point
From the Karon view point you can experience the breathtaking scenery of the three west coast beaches of Phuket nestled within the greenery of its hillsides. Photographs from this point are usually aesthetically pleasing and this point is usually swarmed with tourists for this reason.
A travel lover knows the deep joy in the appreciation of beautiful scenery. Perched at the top of the hills close by you can view the Promthep cape and watch as the waves crash against the rocks at the base . Looking for a quiet morning or afternoon activity? Well , this is definitely an option.
Just a little way from the Promthep cape is this serene hill side with a very rewarding view. The ambience is perfect and it affords you the privacy you might need.
