Phuket City Travel Guide | Phuket City is home to many architectural attractions from its former days as a hub for Chinese merchants and boasts a vibrant nightlife unlike anywhere else on the isle. In addition, its wide selection of eateries offers some of the best dining that can be found on Phuket, partly due to the sheer diversity available. Although Phuket Town offers a bustling atmosphere in its own right, it is less hectic than some of the bigger beach towns along the west coast. It has a culturally rich feel to it, which is evident along the streets of its Old Town. Here you’ll spot striking Sino-Portuguese buildings in all sorts of bright colours. With quaint cafés, boutique shopping opportunities, lively night-time entertainment and multiple markets, Phuket Town will engage your mind and satisfy your senses.
