All about the trip
Join us to explore the old town of Takuapa, formerly known as Takola. Located approximately 32 km north of Khao Lak, Takuapa old town dates back to the 13th century and still holds the fascinating charm of ancient Thai culture.
The beautiful Sino-Portuguese architecture and wealth of the community owe their origins to the tin-mining industry, an important era of this town. This tour is the best opportunity to explore “the real” Thailand, not far from Khao Lak.
On this tour, we will discover the old town streets lined with beautiful examples of Sino-Portuguese architecture. We will visit Takuapa Market before heading to Nam Kem Cultural Centre, a museum run by locals made out of clay. Finally, we will also visit the Tsunami Memorial Park; a tranquil and peaceful place for reflection and remembrance.
