Those looking to experience the very best Phuket has to offer away from its idyllic beaches should look to explore the town where one can view a variety of cultural attractions such as Bang Neow Shrine. While this impressive site can be found in Phuket Town, those in search of a Phuket beach resort in the region can consider Anantara Phuket Resort Thailand. This Phuket resort lies along Mai Khao Beach and is only around half an hour from Phuket Town.
Head to the town where you will find the Bang Neow Shrine which in actual fact houses several small shrines, offering an insight into the religious heritage of the island’s people. Also referred to as Tao Buang Keng, this well known site has several doors leading to the shrines, with the main one being located in the middle housing the primary deity. Inside the Bang Neow Shrine one will find ornate interior design and pictorial depictions of ancient stories. Also of note are the portrayals of dragons which play a significant role in Chinese folklore.
