DAY 1 - Phuket Heritage Walk

With a fascinating blend of Chinese and Portuguese influence, Phuket Town is a melting pot of culture and stories. Set off on a leisurely walking tour to discover some of the city’s stunning Sino-Portuguese architecture whilst enjoying a few classic Thai experiences along the way!

Start the journey with a visit to a local market in the morning. In the early hours of the day, markets like these are bustling with locals bargaining for the day’s cooking ingredients. Explore the stalls and keep an eye out for the colourful blooms sold at the flower market before continuing on foot towards Kajorn Rangsan Temple and nearby Chin Pracha Mansion. This stunning example of Sino-colonial architecture offers fascinating insight into how a wealthy Phuket family once lived decades ago.

After exploring the interior of Chin Pracha House, walk to Thai Hua Museum for an in-depth look at how Chinese immigrants settled in Thailand. Just a stone’s throw from Thalang Road, this museum is the perfect jumping-off point for a stroll down this intriguing avenue lined with stunning Sino-Portuguese style buildings and charming street-level shops. Stop by a local shop for a snack and a refreshing drink and snap a few pictures at the vividly colourful Soi Rommanee, before exploring the interior of the old post office, a unique glimpse into the area’s colonial past.

On Phang Nga Road stroll past Phuket’s oldest hotel and visit a hidden Chinese temple before wrapping up the journey at a stunning historic house with a traditional Thai lunch.
