So another in my Urban exploration series, this time the abandoned Villa, in Old Town Phuket.
Built around 100 years ago this sadly empty and decaying building is left. Surrounded by some out buildings and what would have been servants quarters.
The building is securely padlocked at all entrances to the ground floor, I suspect that as much of the main roof section has gone the upper floors maybe rotten beyond repair and very dangerous!
Windows are closed and I managed to push one open a little to get a peek inside. Tantalising glimpses of what was before. You can get around to the side and the rear of this building, the back, backs onto a water culvert so not practical to enter through there either. Judging by the undergrowth, i wouldn’t want to bet on the local friendly snakes either.
So instead I just looked at what I could and wishing I could restore it to what it used to be. On a prime piece of land in the center of the Old Town in Phuket, it looks like there will be a long wait before that if ever comes up for sale!
