Phuket Old Town

Phuket Old Town is the historical centre of Phuket Town (officially elevated to Phuket City since 2004, but its old name is still wildly used). Established during the peak of tin mining industry at the end of the 19th Century and beginning of 20th century, this district hosts superb mansions and beautifully preserved ‘shop-houses’ built in a Sino-colonial architecture. Phuket Old Town’s aspect is rather similar to Georgetown’s in Penang: ‘shop-houses’ with arcades flank both sides of the streets, and Chinese shrines are more numerous than Buddhist Temples. Phuket Old Town is in constant evolution with the opening of many restaurants, coffee-shops, boutiques and bars, making it a lively place to hang around after sunset; during daytime, it remains an important commercial hub with the two markets held on Ranong Road; and every Sundays, Phuket Walking Street is an extremely popular event held on Thalang Road that attracts thousands of visitors
