Pithak Chinpracha House Museum, Phuket

Pithak Chinpracha House Museum, Phuket (must see)

Another destination that makes it to the list of the hidden treasures of Phuket is the Pithak Chinpracha House Museum. Unlike the popular overly published tourist destinations in Phuket, the Pithak Chinpracha House manages to offer its visitors a romantic escape cut out from the noise of the city. Located at 98 Krabi Road, this elegant mansion is worthy of a visit.

Pithak Chinpracha, also known as Tan Ma Siang, built this edifice in the early 1900s with the vision of living here along with his entire family. The construction was started in 1904, and every little detail of the structure was looked into personally by Pithak Chinpracha. Such was his enthusiasm to build a perfect home, that he specially brought the lead carpenter all the way from Penang to head the project. The resultant magnificent, peaceful hideaway he desired, cost him a whooping B 500,000, which was quite a sum in those days.

The mansion has housed many families over the years, and still preserves the romantic feel that inevitably captivates everyone who visits the place. Adorned with a beautiful garden, this little mansion turned museum has a little something for everyone.
