Take a break from the beach for a culturally rich experience cycling through old Phuket town. Located on trading routes between India and China, Phuket became a melting pot of people, cultures and religions. The 19th-century tin boom attracted an influx of Chinese laborers and their influences are still evident in the architecture, food, and places of worship seen today. On bikes, you will travel back in time to unlock the secrets of Phuket Old Town and also explore the town's peripheral.
