Excellent
A beautiful piece of island standing Rock solid as if it's the admirer of every one else staring at him. The place is beautiful yet remote and hence it closes by evening and the island becomes completely out of reach.
Sometimes the key to the success of your holidays is to have a well-organized tour. This was very true when my friend and I travelled to Bangkok. I was amazed by the services provided by thrillophilia
I definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to hit the highlight of the Phuket... our tour guide was awesome
Warmly recommend this island tour! Visited all the promised sites, including a few surprise one.Only wish the trip had been longer.We will be back
