Thavorn Hotel was the first hotel in Phuket AND with the first elevator – they have a new elevator now and the hotel is popular with local people during Songkran and the Vegetarian Festival.
I visited the Thavorn Hotel because I had just had a cup of coffee at the Gallery Café along the road from here. Walking into the hotel is like normal but then there are hotel items scattered around the lobby – a safe, a luggage rack and old photographs…
Paying 30 baht to the receptionist and they will open the ‘museum’ for you to peruse through. The museum is a small room opposite the reception and is full of items which have a story to them:
|the tiger feet fossil|
|the ceramic pillow....|
|the cinema projector|
|a lotus bowl|
The list is endless – worth a visit.
