Phuket Old Town

Step back in time with a stroll around the historic area of Phuket City. Its ornate buildings and colourful temples make Phuket Old Town a vibrant contrast to the island’s beaches. You’ll find ample opportunity for shopping and sampling local dishes, but the area really comes alive on a Sunday evening with the night market. Make the most of your visit by downloading an online walking tour before you go.
