History museums

History Museum
“Thai Hua Museum on Krabi Road is one of the best looking and well-maintained Sino-Portuguese buildings in Phuket. This recently renovated building was at one stage a Chinese-language school. These days it is used as a museum, exhibition space and an occasional function hall. In 2008, the Thai Hua Museum was given an award in the category of constitutional and public buildings by the Siam Architect Association under the King’s patronage for its outstanding role in conserving architectural arts.”

“You will learn much past information about how Phuket island came to be and how it was used before becoming a tourist location. It's also a great location for nature hiking, picnic or just relaxing in front of the lake.”

“Promthep Cape is one of the best viewpoints in Phuket, it's right on the southern tip of the island and the views are spectacular. Grab yourself some homemade coconut ice cream, climb the steps and watch the sun go down. ”

Scenic Lookout
“Karon Viewpoint (which used to be Kata viewpoint) is one of the most frequented viewpoints in Phuket. From here, it is possible to take in views of Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beaches. Located between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches, the viewpoint is busy most days of the year and is a staple of many tour itineraries. Called locally ‘Khao Saam Haad’ (Three Beaches Hill), the local municipality for some reason has officially renamed it ‘Karon Viewpoint’. It’s located just to the south of Kata Noi Beach and looks out directly out to the Andaman Sea but most people have their cameras trained due north at the undeniably impressive eight-kilometre vista of the three west coast beaches with Mom Tri’s Villa Royale in the foreground and the distant Hilton Arcadia on Karon Beach in the background. ”

“Khao Rang (Rang Hill) is one of Phuket’s most famous viewpoints. Located to the northwest of the city centre, its summit offers views out over the town and towards the south of the island, neighbouring islands and along the hills forming the ‘spine’ of the island, upon which sits the impressive Big Buddha. Location: Khao Rang, Talat Yai, Muang, Phuket 83000, Thailand”

“Khao Khad Viewpoint (Panwa Viewpoint) is a solitary standing viewpoint on top of one of the highest and most remote hill of Phuket, and a bit of a mystery. The whole place is surprisingly well maintained and clean, grass neatly mown and signage bright. What You Can See So get ready to climb up some two hundred steps and see how fit you are. Panwa Viewpoint building has two levels above the ground floor and the 360˚ view from the top is breathtaking. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Phang Nga Bay.”
