Nostra Map Thailand recently added more information to its app, listing the most attractive tourist destinations and restaurants to coincide with the “Laguna Phuket Marathon 2017” event which will take place this Saturday and Sunday (June 3-4).



Just search and select your preferred destinations then check the distance from your location via an infographic displayed on screen, or simply turn on the navigation on Nostra Map application, which boasts the most accurate coordinates. 

The popular destinations include Phromthep Cape, a great place to watch the sunset with a backdrop of large rocks and sugar palm trees stretching out to the blue sea. Nearby is the Golden Jubilee Lighthouse, which commands spectacular views over the east and southeast of the island and its environs. 

Naiharn Beach offers a beautiful white sand beach that slopes gently into the Andaman Sea and is less crowded than other popular tourist beaches. 

Karon Viewpoint stands between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches. It overlooks a crescent shaped beach and the clear blue sea. 

Also worth a visit is Phuket Fantasea, which brings in advanced technology from Las Vegas to create the spectacular cultural shows.  

Wat Phra Thong (or Wat Prathong) meaning ‘Golden Buddha Image Temple’ is a very old temple with an incredible legend behind it, the kind of story that irresistibly attracts people. The famous half buried golden Buddha has a long history. During the invasion of Thalang town by the Burmese Army, Burmese soldiers tried to excavate the statue in order to take it back to Burma. Much to their chagrin, they were attacked and bitten by swarms of tiny ants coming from the dug earth.
