Jemma and I decided to get the local bus into Phuket Town to visit the special Museum Festival in Phuket Town. After visiting a Chinese Temple to give blessings we wandered through the back streets, along Yaowarat Road and then turning into Krabi Road.
Along Krabi Road is the Phuket Thai Hua Museum - this museum celebrates the special relationship that Phuket has had with the Chinese people and the Museum investigates the humble beginnings of this relationship. (The museum will be written about in another posting - today we were collecting stamps).
After this we then walked to the Phuket Thai Hua Club. Normally the Phuket Thai Hua Club is a small coffee shop and cafe but today there were a number of stalls celebrating the heritage of Thailand. We played with the traditional puppets and collected our second stamp.
Now Daddy decided he need a coffee and Jemma wanted air-conditioning -
Koffie Terrace was our next stop. After refuelling we turned down Soi Romanee and onto Thalang Road.
Here was where there was the Tourist Information of Phuket City Municipality - this was very busy so we did not spend a long time in here - but we got our third stamp.
Our next stop was the Chalermraj Center (Baba Phuket) - (The museum will be written about in another posting - today was collecting stamps).
In here we had a lot of fun - the staff showed Jemma the old toys that were common for children, we had a wonderful time - thank you.
