Travel information about Thalang
Thalang is one of the three districts that make up Phuket and is located in the northern part of the island. If you are staying at Patong you will pass through it on your way to your rental as Phuket International Airport is located in the northern part of Thalang district. In its heyday many decades ago, Thalang was one of the most important business and administration towns in the south of Thailand. Visitors looking to catch a glimpse of the past and see how Phuket was before the blooming of its tourism industry will enjoy various parts of Thalang. Take small side roads that lead you to local villages (where you still can see some old wooden houses), rubber plantations, beaches and a few national parks. Or visit some of its popular attractions including Splash Jungle Thailand’s largest water park, Thalang Museum, Phuket Heroines’ Monument, temples and international award-winning golf courses. Also a big annual event not to be missed is the Thao Thepkasattri Thao Sri Suntorn Festival especially for culture enthusiasts and those who are new in town.

Bang Pae Waterfall:
Bang Pae Waterfall at Khao Phra Thaeo National Park in Thalang, north of Phuket Town is a popular recreational spot for islanders. They use the site as a picnic place and for a fun swimming destination in the wet season, as well as enjoying a meal at the restaurants near the car park, by the lake and outside the gates. It is Phuket's biggest waterfall but by international standards it’s quite a small affair. Still, visitors appreciate the cool water, shade and exotic surroundings. Many local hiking enthusiasts hike extensively in the nearby hills and countryside.
Splash Jungle Water Park:
Splash Jungle Water Park in Mai Khao Beach is unrivalled in southern Thailand when it comes to wet and wild thrills. A great day out, particularly for children, it is home to 12 exhilarating water slides, rides and attractions, with professional lifeguards on standby to make sure that you have a fun and safe time. Located close by Phuket International Airport and a part of the Grand West Sands
Phuket Heroines Monument:
Heroines Monument at the traffic roundabout on Thepkasattri Road in Thalang is no doubt one of the top landmarks on the island. The inspiring story of how brave Lady Chan and Lady Mook who led the locals, of whom many were women, to fight against Burmese intruders and won a battle for more than two centuries ago, still has a strong impact on the psyche of local islanders. In fact for many Thais, the story is in the same vein as the tale of Joan of Arc.
There is a small shrine at the base of the monument where people come to pay respect to the ladies, commonly known as Ya Chan and Ya Mook for Thai (ya is ‘grandma’ in Thai). Most Thai visitors make it a must-stop here before entering the city, especially on their first visit. They usually bring along garlands made from marigold flowers, incense sticks and gold leaf (to be put on the mini version of the same statues). There are stands nearby selling these items.
Thalang National Museum:
Phuket's national museum in Thalang contains ancient artifacts from Phuket and the Andaman region's long history and has exhibits about the famous Battle of Thalang where the well-known Two Heroines Chan and Mook (featured at a monument on the main road nearby) defended the island against the Burmese in the 18th century. It also has information and exhibits about daily life in Phuket, its tin mining history, the indigenous Sea Gypsy culture and the island's Chinese heritage.
The museum features many artefacts and vintage pictures from the early settlement period of the Chinese people who were the main force in making the island what it is nowadays. The lively exhibitions of the old-style coffee shop and a grandma-grandpa store that sells all kinds of knick-knacks looks very interesting and real. It’s sad that all these are fading away and might be gone forever soon.
Monkeypod Coffee House
Monkeypod is an immaculately white café/restaurant on the roadside in Paklok, a few kilometres from Phuket’s iconic Heroine’s Monument, on the way to Bang Pae Waterfall. Being impeccably clean and the only air-conditioned eatery in the area, it’s not surprising that it’s well frequented and popular. You choose to sit outside at one of the six solid wood trellis tables that are set under several towering parasol-shaped monkey pod trees (also known as saman, rain tree, giant thibet, and the engagingly amusing cow tamarind). Gazing around, you have to admit that this place is definitely easy on the eye; the brightly lit white interior features handsome wooden tables, a powerful yet discrete sound system and a bar that also features coffee and an array of fresh fruit all ready to go into the health drinks served here.
