This morning start the day just like a local with a visit to the wet market, where the age old traditions are still part of daily life. Hear the story of Phuket Town as you explore the quaint streets lined with Sino-Portuguese shop houses and grand mansions, to a time when the British, French and Portuguese were drawn to the island to seek their fortune in tin mining. Visit Chin Pracha House, for a peek into the past, with its floor of vintage Italian tiles, artifacts and old photos lining the walls. Learn about the Chinese influence at the Thai Hua Museum and watch in wonder as tea vendors prepare original Malay tea. Continue walking amongst the eclectic mix of art galleries, clothing shops, cafes and temples to the old Post Office and Phuket’s first hotel built in 1929. Finish your walk with a well earned lunch of the local specialty of Hokkian Mee, or Chinese noodles.
