What you can expect
Learn about Phuket's past as you explore the historic parts of the city on board an electric bike with a private guide. Discover the mix of influences that have shaped Phuket today as you explore age-old structures, and take a look into the past with a visit to the quirky Thavorn Museum.
After pick-up from your hotel, meet your guide and climb on board your electric bike. Begin cruising through the streets of Phuket, getting an intimate tour of the city as your guide leads you through less-travelled streets and small lanes. Your tour takes you past former Chinese schools that have been repurposed into museums, as well as shrines that show the influence of Chinese culture on the area. Also see Sino-Portuguese buildings, a testimony to the migrants who came to Phuket during the tin mining boom in the 19th century.
Ride to the Thavorn Museum, which houses a unique collection of antique machines formerly owned by the hotel of the same name. Browse old calculators, typewriters, tin toys, and even an old telephone dispatcher to get glimpse at Phuket's earlier days. After the museum, pedal to your last stop at a fruit market. If you want, sample some of the fresh and delicious wares before heading back to your hotel.
