    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your hotel, then travel inland to Phuket Town, the island’s main city. Learn about the Chinese heritage of Phuket as you take in mansions built by tin and rubber barons, and hear stories of the fortunes and families that emerged from those industries.

    Explore the Sino-Portuguese center of Phuket on foot, soaking up the sights and sounds of the narrow streets, with a guide to point out the city’s rich architectural detailing. Visit an old Chinese temple, and pass street-side eateries and food stalls that serve distinctive Phuket dishes.

    You’ll spot tiny shops along the way, see the ornate ‘shophouses’ built by Chinese settlers, and learn facts about Phuket history and heritage throughout the walk. After finishing the walking portion of this tour, drive to the top of the Rang Hills for views of the city, then eat a set-menu Thai dinner at a hilltop restaurant. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Phuket hotel.

    Dear Jayhou We really appreciate you taking the time to review our Hidden Side of Phuket. It certainly has helped us to understand how you and your travel companion have viewed this unknown side of the Pearl of the Andaman. Indeed, the Chinese has stood at the forefront as one of the first settlers to develop Phuket like it is now. Awesome to read you enjoyed the views of our choice of dining. Yes, we couldn’t agree more with the location and the food quality. Our apologies that some of the food was not up to par, and as it is our duty to inform all concerned, we will do so with your comments about this to the owners of the restaurant. As for Phuket Town, the historical side with its Sino-Portuguese architecture is part of Phuket’s rich history. We understand your comment on this when one really wants to dive deep into the local market scene. Once again, it has been our sincere pleasure taking you on this hidden path across Phuket and reading about your experience with Asian Trails Thailand With kind regards Asian Trails Thailand
