History Museum
“Thai Hua Museum on Krabi Road is one of the best looking and well-maintained Sino-Portuguese buildings in Phuket. This recently renovated building was at one stage a Chinese-language school. These days it is used as a museum, exhibition space and an occasional function hall. In 2008, the Thai Hua Museum was given an award in the category of constitutional and public buildings by the Siam Architect Association under the King’s patronage for its outstanding role in conserving architectural arts.”

“Phuket Walking Street Sunday called Lardyai (means Big Market in Southern Thai language) located right in the middle of Phuket Old Town amazing street which you can explore historical Sino-Portuguese style while walking and shopping there.
