PHUKET: Revitalization of Phuket Town’s Sino-Portuguese heritage was the topic of a seminar held by the Senate Tourism Committee on July 30, led by Phuket Senator Thanyarat Atchariyachai and Phuket City Municipality at the Metropole Hotel.
Speaking at the seminar, Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwansupana explained that there were three major plans for the project.
The first is to develop a historical trail as a “living musem” in Old Phuket Town with improved footpaths, signage, and to move cables underground, she said.
The second plan calls for structural improvements of buildings along the historical trail and the environment surrounding them. This phase also calls for the development of Klong Bang Yai canal as a recreation spot in Town and the construction of a multi-purpose public facility in Queen Sirikit Park.
