Phuket Town (Muang District)

Sirey Island:
Separated from the mainland of Phuket by the Klong Ta Jin, a shallow mangrove swamp, this twenty square kilometres island is connected by a causeway to the city. Wat Koh Sirey, on the hill, has a large Reclining Buddha and provides fine views of the surrounding. Phuker's largest settlement of Sea Gipsies, or Chao Lay, are on Koh Sirey at Laem Tuk-kae. Swimming is not good because of themuddy botton. There are some popular seafood restaurants on the eastern shore.

Chalong Temple:
Is about 8 kilometres outside town. Take Vichit Songkram Rd., to the Bypass Rd., and turn left and drive for about 10 mins. Wat Chalong will be on your left. This is where stands the cast statue of Luang Por Cham, who helped the people of Phuket put down the Ahangyee, or Chinese Coolie, Rebellion in 1876 during the reign of Rama V. There are also statues of Luang Por Chuang, and Luang Por Gluam, others monks, who were abbots of the temple during later times, and who are the objects of respect and recipients of offerings by Phuket people generally.

Chalong Bay:
Phuket's principal boat anchorage and the island's largest bay. Ao Chalong has a long, flat, shallow, muddy bottom; at ebbtide, waters recede as much as one kilometre. It is very picturesque but useless for swimming. Most visitors to the islands south of Phuket depart from Chalong pier, and the bay's restaurants are well known for their seafood. Chartersto various places can be arranged from there, and it is the center of the island's yachting business. To get there take Jao Fah Tawan Tok Rd. or Jao Fah Tawan Okk Rd. to Chalong circle, often called the Ha Yaek, or Five Ways, because it is a five-way intersection. The pier and a number of restaurants are located on the short road leading to the beach from the circle.

Phuket Sea Shell Museum:
Perhaps the world's most valuable collection of seashells has been but on display at Phuket Seashell near RAwai Beach on the island's southwesttern shores. The emphasis is on shells from Phuket and Thai waters, which are among the most sought-after by collectors, however shells from every part of the world are featured. Wherever they originate each shell in the Shell Museum is the best of its type very often the only of its type. Displays have been created in a logical order, and visitors can see at once differing characteristics among related species. There are numerous rarities and freaks including the world's largest golden pearl (140 karats), large sections of sedimentary rock containing shell fossils that represent the earth's earliest life-forms, and a shell that weighs 250 kilograms. One of the world's great private museums, the Shell Museum is open daily from 8:00 am.-7:00 pm. For details call 0 7638 1888

Ka Cape:
is a popular stop for Thai visitors to the island. Located at the extreme southwest of Chalong Bay. South of the point is Laem Kah Beach, a sandy strip dotted with rocks and boulders. Okay for swimming, but watch out for coralclose in. The extensive coral reefs off shore make for interesting snorkelling mornings, when the waters are clear. Bungalows, Thai food, and boat charters to the islands are availabloe. Laem Kah is 7 kms. west of Chalong Circle.
