One of the first destinations we visited was Thai Hua Museum, located on Krabi Road in Phuket’s picturesque Old Town. This museum features fascinating exhibits which teach you all about the island’s history and its prominent figures which include a number of Chinese families who are still an important part of island society to this day. You also get to learn about Sino-Portuguese architecture – of which Thai Hua Museum is a prime example – and the vibrant cultural festivals and celebrations which are held in Phuket throughout the year.
Another thought-provoking cultural attraction is Wat Phra Thong, home to a half-buried Golden Buddha and a little museum of its own featuring interesting and quirky artefacts donated by locals. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this elegant temple, which has become a spiritual hub for the community.
One of Phuket’s newest and most unusual attractions is Baan Telangka, otherwise known as Upside Down House. As you can see from our pictures – that’s just what it is! Enjoyably weird, this topsy-turvy 3-storey fully furnished house gives you plenty of opportunities for hilarious selfies and is a great place to visit with friends or family.
