Step back in time to the Phuket of yesteryear

The echoes of a bygone era still resonate in abundance in historically rich Phuket Old Town. Visitors will discover Sino-Portuguese architecture, a legacy of the island’s past as a prominent port on a major trade route and also as the centre of a tin mining boom that attracted speculators from afar.

A new four-hour journey into the past reveals the blending of nationalities, a marriage that produced the Peranakan culture. The tour continues in the footsteps of Chinese immigrants at the Thai Hua Museum.

Aside from the exploration of history and heritage, this excursion also provides a taste of the cuisine that emerged from the economic and cultural fusion.
