Most people plan their vacation in advance. Someone loves to a detail a planned trip, with organized tours, and someone improvise and explore the area and attractions on their own. If you are a follower of the second option, then for sure you know that a self-driving trip in a rented car is possible, easy and exciting.
We suggest you to visit the sights of the South District in Phuket – Rawai. Perhaps you have already heard of the Rawai Beachfront, from which you can go to the neighboring islands. But Rawai is not only a beachfront with boats, it is a district with well-developed infrastructure, lots of attractions and places that you simply have to visit.
Deciding on a self-driving tour, what to visit?
Taking a car for rent and preparing for a mini-trip, you can follow this route:
Wat Chalong Temple
One of the main attractions of Phuket. There are about 30 temples on the island, but this is the most popular of all. All because the temple is like a fairy palace and strikes with its beauty and grandeur.
To be precise, the Big Buddha is not just an erected statue, it’s a whole temple complex under construction. A view that opens with Mount Nakaked will not leave anyone indifferent.
There are many trees on the beach, in the shade of which you can hide from the scorching sun. Within walking distance are many restaurants with both local and European cuisine.
The beach with golden sand is 4 km long. Quiet and cozy, due to the fact that nearby a sand mound in most places closes the road.
Viewpoints in Phuket is a separate story. Only in Rawai district they are 4. It is worth noting Karon Viewpoint, as it is quite high and you can fully enjoy the scenery from a bird’s eye view.
Sunset at the Windmill Station
After actively visiting the sights, it’s time to stop and see a beautiful sunset. The view also offers views of the bay of Nai Harn and Yanuy. It is quiet and peaceful, and there is also a gazebo where you can relax.
Dinner at the Rawai beachfront
To complete the fascinating trip, you can dine with fresh seafood on the Rawai beachfront. Here, and the market of seafood and establishments, which will prepare dishes according to your taste.
One of the many advantages of a self-driving trip is that on the way you can stop at any favorite corner, spend in each place as long as your soul desires.
