Birthday morning! Had a superb breakfast at Sleep With Me Hotel.
We contacted our GrabCar driver and asked if he’s interested for the Island Tour. Renting a van/car is the best way to see the surrounding scenery of Phuket if you’re in a group tour, this will save you money instead of booking in a private tours company that asked you to pay per person. He immediately said yes and to our surprise, he came on time at 8:30AM.
We started our tour at Karon and Kata beach. Karon Beach is located 3 kilometers south of Patong Beach and the beach is less congested and less crowded than Patong.
Next stop was Karon Viewpoint, we spent lot of time there as we enjoyed photo taking with big eagle. You can get photos for 100฿.
The view overlooks 3 beautiful beaches, Kata Noi beach, Kata Yai beach and Karon beach. We really enjoyed the sights here.
On our way to Big Buddha, we took ATV ride. The ride is something risky for a first timer but was a great experience and we all loved it!
