Thai Hua Museum - Review

Once upon a time this used to be a Chinese School, now it is one of the best museums on the island that occasionally also serves as an event space. The museum building is of Sino Portuguese architecture and historic to boot. The exhibits inside explore the Chinese history of Phuket in its most salient movements. This includes the Chinese migration to the island, the lifestyle of the Chinese, the island’s relationship with mainland China, the old tin mining industry, and a room exploring the legacy of the Chinese on the island. It really gives you an insight into certain influences on the island that you may not have otherwise noticed. The exhibits are beautifully presented, lit, and efficiently arranged. Check out the charming central courtyard of the building.

  • The museum is about the history of the Chinese in Phuket. While interesting it is little more than the great and good of the community getting a pat on the back for being successful and their later philanthropy. Expensive for what it has on offer.

  • Good place to learn Phuket history, guide very kindness, know a lot of Phuket history. Recommend every one visit here. Very like.

  • A good stop in the middle of your Phuket town exploration. The building itself is almost worth a stop. Don't miss the little coffee shop 'Cafe'In' in front of the museum. It's small but they serve a couple of local desserts!

  • Lots of local knowledge. Things are well maintained and well displayed. Descriptions are easy to read and understand.

  • Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand, located in the Andaman Sea of southern Thailand. The island is mostly mountainous with a mountain range in the west of the island from the north to the south. The mountains of Phuket form the southern end of the Phuket mountain range, which ranges for 440 km from the Kra Isthmus. The highest elevation of the island is Mai Thao Sip Song (Twelve Canes), at 529 m above sea level. It is estimated that Phuket has a total area of about 570 square kilometres (including the provinces other islands). Phuket is about 536 miles (862 kilometres) south of Bangkok, and covers an area of about 134,178 acres (543 square kilometres) excluding small islets. It is estimated that if all its 39 other small islands are included, Phuket Province will cover an area of about 145,792 acres (590 square kilometres). The island total length, from north to south, is estimated at 30 miles (48.7 kilometres) and 13 miles (21.3 kilometres) wide. Phuket's topology is exceptional with 70 percent of its area covered with mountains which stretch from north to south and the remaining 30 percent being plains located in the central and eastern parts of the island. The island does not have any major rivers except for a total of nine brooks and creeks. Forest, rubber and palm oil plantations cover 60% of the island. The western coast has several sandy beaches, while on the east coast beaches are more often muddy. Near the southernmost point is Laem Promthep (Brahma's Cape), which is a popular sunset viewing point. In the mountainous north of the island is the Khao Phra Thaeo Non-hunting Area, protecting more than 20 km² of rainforest. The three highest peaks of this reserve are the Khao Prathiu (384 mtrs), Khao Bang Pae (388 mtrs) and Khao Phara (422 mtrs). The Sirinat National Park on the northwestern coast was established in 1981 and protects an area of 90 km² (68 km² marine area), including the Nai Yang beach where sea turtles lay their eggs. One of the most popular tourist areas on Phuket is Patong Beach on the central western coast, perhaps owing to the easy access to its wide and long beach. Most of Phuket's nightlife and its cheap shopping is located in Patong, and the area has become increasingly developed. Patong means "the forest filled with banana leaves" in Thai. Other popular beaches are located south of Patong. In a counterclockwise direction these include Karon Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach, and around the southern tip of the island, Nai Harn Beach and Rawai. To the north of Patong are Kamala Beach, Surin Beach and Bang Tao Beach. These areas are generally much less developed than Patong, and sought out by individuals, families and other groups with a preference for more relaxed and less crowded environs than Patong. There are many islands to the southeast, including Bon Island, just a short boat trip away. There are several coral islands to the south of Phuket, the Similan Islands lie to the north west, and Phi Phi Islands to the south east. Islanders engage in a lively tourist trade, catering to snorkellers and scuba divers.
