Offering a different vibe to the beach, Phuket Town is where the culture and history of Phuket can be found. The busy town is a commercial hub for locals, who go about their daily routines. The community is still very traditional in some aspects with stores and restaurants that have been selling the same goods and serving the same recipes for generations.
Phuket Old Town
The Sino-Portuguese architecture brings character to the city. In the Old Town many buildings and even whole streets have been renovated to bring back their former glory from the days when the tin mining community thrived some 100 years ago.
Visit the clock tower, Soi Romanee, Dibuk Road, Thalang Road, Thaihua Museum and more locations where the shop houses and mansions are now homes, museums, businesses and restaurants. For a taste of the local night life, stay in town and go to one of the many bars that play live music.
At the edge of town the beach at Sapan Hin offers a respite from the busy streets. With a small beach, park area and walkways, its a great place to take a stroll or have a picnic, but not suitable for swimming.
Koh Siray is an island connected to Phuket Town by a short bridge. On the approach to the bridge visitors can stop by a platform specially built for feeding the monkeys that come out of the mangrove to eat each afternoon. The island of Koh Siray is home to the largest Sea Gypsy community in Phuket. The peaceful island is mostly mountains and natural landscape, but in recent years development has begun and the small island is now home to a major hotel Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa Phuket.
