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.
