This place can be called the landmark of Phuket. Whether you come here to enjoy a sunset or to take a few pictures you won’t be disappointed.
There is a working lighthouse on the Cape with a small historical Museum inside. On the way to the lighthouse, you will find a shrine. Thai people believe that such a beautiful place is certainly inhabited by strong spirits. To gain spirits favor or pay respect Thais often bring offerings or gifts to the shrine. You can buy a gift for yourself or your loved ones at a souvenir market located in front of the parking lot.
Most people don’t go beyond the concrete barrier wall. But there is a dirt path leading down that will take you directly to flat stones, gently sloping into the sea.

It is said that the Temple or Wat in Thai was established during the reign of King Rama II (1809-1842). Now it is one of the most revered temples. There have been some major historical events connected with the Temple. One of such events was a rebellion of Chinese coolies in 1876. Local Thai people were inspired by the Abbot of Wat Chalong to fight the rebels and the rebellion was put down. In addition to his wisdom, the Abbot Luang Pho Chaem (1827-1908) was believed to heal people with the help of his walking stick.

If you want to see how Thai people perform their religious rituals make sure you visit all of the buildings. You can even join them but please be very polite. According to a legend Chedi, the tallest building at the complex holds Buddha’ relics.

This place is two attractions in one. It is a viewpoint and also a grand temple complex.
Construction has been ongoing for more than 10 years and is funded by donations. It all started with the ambitious idea of a few friends who once found this place in the mountains. From the observation deck you can see the two coasts of Phuket. Chalong is to the East and Kata, Karon is to the West.
There is a small temple at the base of the statue where you can get blessed by a Buddhist monk. And if you come across people rubbing the Gong with their hands - get in line. It is believed that if it “sings” it means you have a pure soul.

The passage to the observation deck is to the left immediately after you climb to the statue.

This is an interesting attraction for both adults and kids. It takes a few minutes for your brain to get used to the inverted interior and to understand how to take pictures.

Chin Pracha Mansion is also known as Baan Chin Pracha. The house is more than 116 years old and was built in 1903 in a Sino-Portuguese style. Phuket people call this type of architecture “Angmor” that means Western or European. It was the first house of its kind built on Phuket and only a few of them remain standing. The furniture in the house was imported from China and a majority of objects that you see today belonged to the original owner. A lot of construction materials were brought from Europe. For example, the fence was brought from Holland and ceramic floor tiles - from Italy. In this house, builders replicated an architectural style of houses seen on Penang Island in Malaysia. A leading craftsman from Penang was brought here to lay the floor tiles. In the center of the house, there is a courtyard with a pond that can be seen from any part of the house. The owners spent about 500 000 baht on its construction. It was an unprecedented amount of money at that time.

The original owner of the house is Tan Ma Siang, who was initially called Prapitak Chinpracha by local people, was born in 1883 in Phuket. In 1903, he was only 20 years old when he ordered the construction of the mansion during the reign of King Rama V.

Current owners are sixth generation descendants of its builder. Prapitak Chinpracha was a son of Tan Niaw Yee, also known as Luang Bamrung Jinpratid born in Fujian province, China. Tan Niaw Yee was a famous warrior during the reign of King Rama IV. He moved to Thailand to manage his first venture, a tin mining company. He also owned a company "Lian Bi", located on the island of Penang in Malaysia.
Today Chinpracha House is a heritage building that attracts many visitors. Almost no wedding photo shoot is complete without a visit to this place.
