thinds to do at Phuket, Thailand

Our walking tour of Old Town Phuket will captivate your senses and bring to life a bygone era of colonial traders and Chinese and Muslim immigrants. Stroll along sidewalks lined with lively shophouses, smell the incense emanating from a Chinese temple and delight in the fresh market’s showcase of exuberant fruits and vegetables. Peruse the restored Sino-Portuguese architecture of the 1929 On On Hotel and a display of Buddhist amulets, a favorite Thai good luck charm. Stop for a bite of Muslim roti and a cup of tea or a chat with Mr. Nong at a coffeehouse inside his 17th century family home.
