It’s quite a feat top find someone without a fascination for seashells. However, for seashell fanatics out there, the Phuket Seashell museum would surely be a pleasant venture while staying at one of the Patong resorts well known for the uniqueness of location. If looking for a Phuket resort with a difference, Millennium Resort Patong Phuket is a recommended choice of accommodation, well known among many who frequent this part of the world. With over 2000 seashells on display, the Phuket Seashell museum is a store house for knowledge for seashell aficionados out there. Some of these curiously shaped shells date back to 380 million years while one can also see one of the rarest golden pearls on display here. Also worthy of a mention is the only left-handed Noble Volute in the world, large chunks of sedimentary rocks containing the traces of the world’s earliest life forms, humongous clams as well as a shell weighing 250 kgs!
