Phukhet Explorer, History and Cultural Tour (VG-69)

Phuket City gets short shift from foreign visitors who allow it too little time and too little respect despite its prestigious history.

Chinese-Malaysians began arriving at this pint-size Island, almost unknown, after news on the discovery of tin spread out.The influx stepped up during the 1800s, as immigrants came to work for the tin-mining business and helped the Islanders reshape Phuket's heritage. Their influence, noticeable in the Chino-Portuguese architecture, Chinese temples, food and religious beliefs, has become the main ingredients in Phuket's cultural mix.The tour โ€ฆโ€ฆ.

The Phuket city tour takes in the panoramic view of Phuket city and it's surrounding hrgors from the summit of Mr.Rang (Kao Rang). Sightseeing continues via Talang Road, Phuket's oldest commercial center. See the old European style building which were built during the 1800s. Other sightseeing include a colorful Chinese temple, where vegetarian ceremonies are held in October every year and the Chao Lay Sea Gypsy village, the first people to inhabit Phuket. Learn about their survival methods, lifestyles and the dance.

A brief stop at a cashew shop, where the cashew nuts are cracked and bagged. Sample the nuts, the southern specialty. Head South to "Lame Promthep" where the sunsets are stupendous (clear sky only). Watch the changing colors of Phuket at Lame Promthep before transferring to your hotel..
