Insight Thainess Episode 7: The Part of Phuket
Theme: The Journey of Phuket
Duration 3 minutes
Location: Phuket Old Town
Phuket’s glorious history is hidden behind its arts and culture, and also the kindhearted warmth of the local people that are waiting to welcome visitors from all over the world. Traces of the old civilisation in the Malay Peninsular are still apparent until now through the architectural designs in Phuket Old Town, presenting the combination of Portuguese, Chinese, and Malay arts. From local houses of Chinese tin miners in early times to the golden age of international trade and commerce when Western art and culture were brought in by the European people, Western architectural styles from Neo-classical art, Renaissance art to Modern art, were combined with the local culture and lifestyle, and made Phuket the first “Pearl of the Andaman Sea”.
