About Phuket Town

Phuket Town, in the south of Phuket Island, is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination in it’s own right. Phuket Town doesn’t have a beach, or any real nightlife, but what it does have is an interesting Old Town area. Before Phuket became one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations the island was an important centre for tin mining. From the late 19th Century to the early 20th Century, Phuket attracted a large number of immigrant workers from China, many of whom became very rich and settled in Phuket Town.

The Old Town area has lots of buildings dating back to that period many of which are very preserved, due principally to efforts of the large Thai-Chinese community that still lives in Phuket Town. Phuket Town also has plenty of great value for money hotels and restaurants, as well as great transport links, and many ‘in the know’ travellers choose to base themselves in the town during their visit to Phuket.

Amongst the places worth visiting in Phuket Town are:

  • Thalang Road: Located in the centre of the Old Town, the Thalang Road features many Sino-Portuguese style shop houses, photogenically painted in pastel colours.
  • Chinpracha House: Early 20th Century mansion of wealthy Chinese immigrants now opened up to visitors as a museum. This beautifully preserved period piece is one of 18 major mansions from the tin mining era in Phuket Town.
  • Jui Tui Shrine: Chinese temple which becomes the focal point of the annual Phuket Vegetarian festival.
  • Rang Hill: A hill at the north edge of the town with a viewpoint you can walk up to and a magnificent temple to visit on the way up.
  • Thai Hua Museum: Museum in a grand mansion that used to be a school. The museum is dedicated to the history of the Chinese community in Phuket.
