NileGuide Expert tip:
Book an early tour if possible. It gets hot during mid-day, which makes it difficult to walk around for long periods of time.
The Phuket Heritage Trails tour is unique for a number of reasons. The tour is run by two local women who are not only very knowledgeable about Phuket but also very passionate about the history of the city. This is quite obvious as soon as you start the tour, which helps you explore the architecture, cultural mix and local beliefs of the many people who inhabit Phuket. Depending on whether you choose the half-day or full-day tour, you'll get to visit up to 20 different famous sights in Phuket. Common stops include the Sino-Portuguese Architectural Mansion, Phuket Thai Hua Museum, a number of temples (include Chinese, Thai and Hindu sites), the Sea Gypsies village and the Mangrove Preservation & Educational Center. The tour places a special emphasis on the Old Phuket Town Trails, which date back to the last century. Tours can also be customized to your interests. Whether you prefer to explore the cultural, historical or architectural heritage of Phuket, this tour won't disappoint.
