        Phuket Thai Hua Museum

          The Thai Hua Museum on Krabi Road in Phuket Town is a pleasant surprise. We visited it a few years ago when it reopened, and despite being in a beautiful mansion, it was just an empty building.

            Boon's Local Thai Restaurant in Phuket Town

            Boon Restaurant, a local gem near Phuket Town

              Boon is one of the most underrated local Thai restaurants in Phuket. It’s not fancy, the menu is not long, and lunch at Boon only costs a few baht, but the taste is unique. The restaurant is tiny, hard to spot, and so modest; we probably wouldn’t bother explaining to anyone how to go there. But after so many years, we realised that this place is very special to us: It’s what local Thai food is all about: simple, cheap, casual, and delicious.
