Phuket Town

Phuket Town Thailand

A welcome break from the sea, sun and sand of Phuket – Thailand’s largest island – Phuket Town is doused in history and culture. You can put on a pair of flip-flops and saunter around the artsy streets crammed with pastel-hued buildings and hip cafés.

The narrow lanes of the Old Town covered in vibrant murals pave the way to art galleries, temples and coffee shops. As you stroll through this quaint quarter, you’ll come across distinctive shophouses in Sino-Portuguese-style architecture. Visit the Chinpracha House, one of Phuket Town’s most notable mansions that exudes an old-fashioned charm with its antique furniture, Italian ceramic tiles and shutters windows.

There are an array of retail options that you can explore when travelling to the capital city of Phuket Province. Situated on the outskirts of the town is the 120,000-square metre shopping mall Central Festival Phuket, where you’ll find everything from luxury brands and souvenir stores to spas and restaurants. To shop for sports accessories and high-end fashion at slashed prices, head to Premium Outlet Phuket. After sunset, you can enjoy the vibe for the various night markets that light up the streets.
