Chinpracha House

Beautiful house. So much detail. They should have a docent to explain everything. We were lucky to be in a guided tour.

A Nice early building in Old Town Phuket
Jul 2019
I thought this was the best historic place we visited in old town Phuket and I believe it’s the oldest. The mansion built in 1903 in the Sino-colonial style is really quite interesting and you feel like you’re walking back in time when you walk around the first floor. I think the family heirs may still live in the 2nd floor. It’s kept the way it was when people lived generations ago, paintings and pictures on the wall. I’m glad we stopped her. The house sits back a bit on some land so you get in a quieter area away from the heat of the street.

A pity it’s just a walk around
Jun 2019 • Family
Visitors pay about THB150 per pax to visit the house that is in 1903. After paying, you will be given a piece of paper that provides a short brief history of the home and the owner. Visitors get to see the ground floor which includes the kitchen, the ancestral hall, the living room and a bedroom and antiques. The layout is similar to Peranakan houses. It’s a pity that the owner didn’t put in more effort to perhaps do more write up eg what’s the purpose of the ancestral room, or the lightwell etc. Or have a guided tour of sorts to let visitors know more about their unique culture and how are they similar or different to the Peranakan in places in Penang, Malacca or Singapore. Do bring along repellent. The mozzies here bite.

Overpriced for the tour
Jun 2019 • Friends
Thais pay THB 100 for this and it was honestly overpriced. All you get to see is the lower floor of an old house where they kept all it mostly original since olden days. For the price The Blue Mansion in Penang is waaaaay better. I guess it’s one way to earn some money to maintain the house but if they can reduce the admission price perhaps it’s more attractive. Thaihua museum with more information and more rooms to see was only THB 50 and you feel the value.

Interesting antiques and step back in time.

This is an old house with some very old and beautiful Chinese ivory inlaid furniture but it is clearly run down. I would not recommend spending the time here unless you are interested in how they designed and built houses in that era in Asia. The style is a combination-of Chinese and Portuguese (European) styles. Bring your insect repellent.

Interesting, but in bad shape.

This house is an opportunity to see inside one of Old Phuket Town's mansions. The house is in a very run down state. It's beautiful original facade shoes terrible wear and tear, and has an ugly shed built over the right hand side of the facade. The visitor may only see the ground floor, which is furnished, but also shows signs of a desperate need of repair. The garden and the upstairs are not open.
It is down a long driveway next door to the beautiful Phra Phithak Chinpracha Mansion (Blue Elephant). This was the only interior of an historic Old Phuket Town mansion that I was able to see, so it was worth the 150 baht. See it before it falls down!!

If guided by the owner - don't miss it!
Dec 2018 • Family
It is a private house in which the owners still dwell (on the upper floor - not allowed to visitors).
We checked some details before visiting and knew the right approach - buy tickets and politely ask the owner to give you a private tour :)
And he did .. and we enjoyed it so much.
It is a completely different perspective when you hear the insider family story for every room, every item in it... if you are just a foreign tourist but want to learn something about Phuket history, people, habits and traditions - a good way to start.
Ofcourse, these are former landlords and their perspective is subjective and completely different than of the "little" people, but if you filter this out and just observe the artefacts and glimpse of those times - you will enjoy hour or two in there.

This is a quaint old house full of stuff with no description or interpretation and a grumpy lady who takes your money and gives nothing in return. Visit the the Old Phuket Town Coffee shop instrad

Nice, but not a must.
Mar 2018 • Couples
A 100 years old Thai mansion, that was built by a member of a family that still leaves there. The house is built in an old Portuguese style in combination with Chinese and Thai way. It takes 10 minutes to see it all. It is nice if you are there, but I would not come only for it.
