Phuket Old Town - Thalang Road





Thalang Road is the commercial heart of Old Phuket Town.  The row of houses blend Chinese Architecture with that of European Colonial styles.




Wander around and see what you can discover

Butterfly Garden and Insect World (closed April 2015)




My daughter loves to come here - we have been here more than twice - asked for a ticket for a year and they were unable to help...




The coffee shop is also very good.

Visit Big Buddah (2nd visit)




A wonderful location in South Phuket - a very necessary visit. 



Always interesting - can you caress this to make a sound?
- an example on youTube.





Interesting - what are they going to construct underneath?

Whilst you are there I would also visit Wat Chalong which is close.

Footprints?


This is a different thing to try - place your hand or foot (here my daughter's) in a box, make a mould and then fill this mould with wax.

A fun idea - this was made on the top floor of Central in Phuket Town and near to the cinema.
