When visiting the state of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, many tourists flock to experience and relax on the sun kissed beaches of Phuket. This natural beauty coupled with the fact that finding comfortable accommodation in Phuket is not difficult allows tourists to choose from a range of luxury hotels Phuket that pride themselves on providing the best experience possible for their guests. Resorts such as Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa provide their guests with a fitness centre, a library, water sports and even cooking school in addition to the opportunity to relax, unwind and rejuvenate at their award winning spa. However, the true traveller will bear a thirst to explore the surroundings which cannot be quenched by not straying very far from their hotel. For that ardent traveller, therefore, the heart of Phuket is a godsend.
For those who are awed by magnificent architecture, Baan Chinpracha is a must visit. This colonial mansion is located on Krabi Road and will provide the curious traveller with an account of how the elite in Phuket used to live and is the only Sino-Colonial mansion on the island that can be viewed by members of the public. While the present owner gained his ownership through descent, most aspects of the mansion can be viewed and these include a couple of bedrooms, the ground floor and the kitchen. The mansion is complete with a beautiful inner courtyard that lets in light and air into the house.
Given its beautiful architecture, it is no surprise that Baan Chinpracha has been used as a filming location for a number of films and TV series’. The mansion can be viewed for a small entrance fee from 9am to 4.30pm daily except on Sundays and those who wish to celebrate an event or host a party can make it extra special by booking the Baan Chinpracha as the venue.
