Starting February 10th 2013, the old town of Takuapa will be the setting for a grand Chinese New Year celebration that will mark the beginning of your journey of discovering Thailand. The word Takuapa originated from the word “Takkola” which is literally taken from the fact that the city had once flourished with spices of many different varieties, especially cardamom. Takuapa is located just 18 kilometers north of The Sarojin. It is a place that immediately gives off its old Chinese and Sino-Portuguese influence in the form of the buildings from that era dotting the place. One can easily feel the strong influence of those cultures in this place. The old town was once an important maritime port around A.D. 57, being a gateway for shipping routes to India, Arabia, lands under Roman domination and the Suwannabhummi Territories.

For a discerning visitor it is a small place holding a big surprise. It is the host to the largest Chinese festival in the south of Thailand. However if you feel that it is just about all that you’re going to experience here, then you’re wrong. The Sarojin holds more surprises for you than you can plan for.
