Phuket, Thailand-port

With a land area of 215 square miles, Phuket Island is about the same size as Singapore, making it Thailand's largest island. Known as the "Pearl of Thailand," this beautiful retreat offers pristine beaches, lush vegetation, traditional villages, and seascapes of huge limestone pillars that tower over the turquoise waters of Phang-Nga Bay. Apart from tourism, much of the province's wealth derives from tin production, which started back in the 16th century.

Tour Code: PHU-002

Explore the age-old principles of medicinal massage and reflexology as practiced by Thailand's Buddhist monks during this visit to the Chalong Temple, and a relaxing aroma therapy package.

Depart the pier for the scenic 3.5-mile drive south to visit the Chalong Temple, Phuket's largest and most sacred temple. It is best-known for its gold leaf-encrusted statues of three former abbots. One of them, Luang Por Chem, was especially respected for his medical skills and magical powers, which he successfully used when the Chinese Army attacked Phuket at the turn of the 20th century.

Next, you will relax and unwind with a 2-hour aroma therapy package that incorporates both a 45-minute aromatic massage and 45-minute reflexology session. Medicinal massage is said to be a whole and total approach to wellness that enables one to feel in harmony with the rhythms of life. It was originally practiced 2,500 years ago by the Buddhist monks of Thailand, and handed down from master to student ever since. Medicinal massage combines acupuncture from China with yoga from India to open up the body energetically and physically.

The highly-calming aromatic massage you will receive combines the therapeutic power of the olfactory senses with the healing power of touch. Essential oils are highly penetrative, and help to soothe nerve endings, increase the metabolism, and relieve aches and pains. The reflexology treatment applies manual and digital pressure to the skin to revitalize energy and balance the whole system. Reflexology is very calming and relaxing, and helps to reduce stress and improve circulation.

Please note: The 2-hour aroma therapy package includes a 45-minute aromatic massage and 45-minute reflexology session. The minimum age to participate on this tour is 18 years old.
