This Historical and Cultural Tour explores the old town of Takuapa, formerly known as ‘Takola’. Located approximately 32km north of Khao Lak. Takuapa Old Town dates back to the 13th Century and still holds onto it’s 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 in the town’s, and in fact the county’s, history. This tour is the best opportunity to explore “the real” Thailand, not far from Khao Lak.

On this Takuapa 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 and interestingly made out of clay. Finally, we visit the Tsunami Memorial Park; a tranquil and peaceful place for reflection and remembrance.
