Chalong Village & Chalong holiday Apartments
Chalong Holiday Apartments - Chalong is the central hub of southern Phuket with Kata, Karon and Rawai beaches and Phuket town all within a twenty minute drive. This up and coming area of Phuket is becoming increasingly popular with those wishing to live or rent close to southern Phuket’s main gateway to the many wonderful outlying islands.
Chalong Bay and its impressive 720 metre pier is the launching site for dozens of day trips for scuba divers exploring the fascinating underwater world surrounding Phuket that has made it a world class diving destination. The bustling Chalong Pier is also home to many private yachts moored around the bay and day trips on long-tail boats, speed boats and ferries to Phuket’s finest islands put to sea every day.
Despite Chalong’s growing popularity and amenities it remains one of the most low cost areas in southern Phuket for short and long term property rentals. In terms of convenience Chalong has it all, plenty of restaurants, bars, banks and shops including the Villa Market that stocks western foods otherwise difficult to find in Thailand. A short drive north from Chalong there is Central Festival, a modern shopping mall that is home to dozens of shops selling designer clothing, restaurants and has a state-of-the-art cinema.
The most visited and largest Buddhist temple in Phuket is Wat Chalong. Just north of Chalong Circle, Wat Chalong is a fascinating historical collection of small temples where local Thais gather to show their respect and deliver offerings. A short but steep trip up the hill closer to Chalong Circle will bring you to the recently built Big Buddha, a huge 45 metre structure sitting on the tip of the hill, and offers some magnificent 360 degree views over south Phuket.
With its close proximity to beautiful beaches and Phuket Town, a Chalong holiday villa is an excellent choice.
