This part of Phuket came up with the riches that came into the town because of its tin! It is small enough to stroll through and explore. The ideal time to start your leisure walk and exploring would be early morning or in the evening when the crepuscular rays are out. Here are a few places to look out for as you saunter old Phuket town.
Thai Hua Museum
This museum is situated down Krabi Road and is also used as an exhibition hall and function hall too at times. The structure has been styled in the Sino-Portuguese architectural pattern. The Thai Hua Museum also received an award for its conservation of artefacts by the Siam Architect Association under the King’s patronage.
This is the main road in the old town of Phuket, it is a stretch of boulevard with several attractions, shops and cafes on either side. A walk here will certainly charm your senses. On Sundays, the place is transformed into the Phuket Walking Street which a fair that occupies nearly the entire road with vendors.
Jui Tui Shrine
This is a typical Chinese style temple that plays an important part in the famous annual vegetarian festival in Phuket. The premises of the temple are remarkable with images of the temple when it was just a lone structure.
This is yet another enchanting street that takes you back in time to the olden days. Just like many other buildings in many streets in Phuket, this too has many Sino-Portuguese style buildings to see. If you are on the lookout for a place to stay while exploring Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas and many a popular Phuket resort are available.
