When thinking about Phuket island, you might think of pristine beaches, white sand and nightlife. However, Phuket has a lot more to offer and you might be surprise just how much you can do on the island.
First off, the Peal of Andaman Sea’s history dates back to 500 years. In the 16th century, Phuket was well-known to many Europeans because of its natural resources, which included tins, hardwoods and rubber. When the European mining companies were invited in, major public infrastructure such as roads and canals were also built and two styles of building in particular stand out: the shop houses (Sino-Portuguese style) and the big mansions (Sino-Colonial style).
Nowadays, many old buildings have been converted into shops, museums, restaurants and hotels. This Old Town of Phuket also became one of the best tourist attractions on the island.
