Thought Phuket was just a resort town? In fact Phuket has been home to a major trading port and tin mining industry dating back to the 19th century that brought thousands of Chinese migrants to Phuket's shores . With these flourishing industries came infrastructure that still stands today. Now a quaint town this tour brings the past back to life with all the stories and facts about what used to be. Start the day with a visit to the fresh market before heading to Chinpracha House and Thai Hua museum. Stroll through the old town famous for it's Sino-Portuguese architecture, those feeling peckish can try out some Hokkien style noodles and Malay tea which still remain popular from the days of the Chinese migrants.
The short tour covered a lot of the Sino-Portuguese history of Phuket including the architectural style and influences of various cultures. Got a really broad overview of Phuket's history from the tour, thank you!
