When people think of Tours around Phuket, they typically think of packages involving trips to all the amazing natural places like the stunning beaches and glorious viewpoints. Now it seems there is another type of tour available. Instead of going to see real live exotic animals, you can now go on tours to see virtual cartoon monsters that aren’t even there.
Yongyuth Chankul, the Managing Director at Phuket Tour Holiday Co., has already started tours around the island. So now instead of going to certain landmarks to absorb the history and culture of the island, you can go to them to take a selfie with a cartoon character on your phone.
Pokemon have already been discovered at such places as Khao Rang in Phuket Town, Wat Chalong, Thalang Rd in Phuket Old Town, Karon Viewpoint, Phromthep Cape and even Saphan Hin. Maybe children will even be able to find them in Bangla road.
With the latest Pokemon Go craze sweeping the world, the tours around the island will surely be a big hit with all the tourists out there who are children at heart. So next time you’re here, be sure to go on one of them in order to experience the true taste of Phuket.
