Phuket City Night Life
The Phuket City Night Life is distinct from the busy tourist scene. The fun in Phuket City never ends, even after sundown. Phuket City night life has a greater concentration of local flavor than anywhere else. For both residents and foreigners, several venues have emerged as favored gathering places for musical events, live performances, gigs, and more. Great nightclubs, a few rooftop bars, and local night markets that surpass guests’ expectations.
Phuket City is constantly evolving over the years. With the high concentration of locals living there, the nightlife has changed. In particular, Phuket Old Town tends to have a more genuine local feel. This unique feature draws tourists to experience Phuket as it truly is and to mingle with friendly locals. Besides, many places offer family activities for guests traveling as a family.
Phuket Old Town
Phuket Old Town is a historic district in Phuket, Thailand. It is known for its Sino-Portuguese architecture, which is a blend of Chinese and Portuguese styles. The district is home to several temples, museums, and shops. So if you began to feel bored by the beach and sea view this town might be to perfect location to understand the Thai culture and experience local lives.
The historical, cultural, and administrative center of the Kingdom’s largest island, Phuket Town has a fascinating past. Once it was the transit point for Europeans (French, Portuguese, Dutch, and British), Burmese, Indian merchants, and Malay pirates, among others.
The 19th-century tin-mining boom attracted Chinese immigrants. They brought with them their unique architecture, culture, and cuisine, and eventually married into the local Siamese communities, giving birth to the unique Baba Peranakan culture.
Restaurants In Phuket
Phuket is not just a beautiful beach destination. It is also a foodie’s paradise with a smorgasbord of cuisines, both local and international, on offer. Explore the diverse range of restaurants available in Phuket. The local cuisine borrows from the island’s colourful history, melding Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Malay flavours and techniques for a culinary experience like no other.
Set in a 130-year-old Sino-Portuguese building Tu Kab Khao wows with photogenic interiors, vintage-style furniture, gleaming chandeliers, blue-and-white pottery, and portraits of the Royal Family on the walls. Awarded a Michelin Plate, the extensive menu is based on the Southern-style recipes from the owner’s mother.
With a stunning interior that draws inspiration from Phuket’s tin mining industry, Dibuka, which means “hello” in Malay, is a gastropub with live music. The menu includes international dishes and authentic local dishes such as Khao Kluk Kapi, Miang Som O, and Gaeng Som.
Another two-storey Sino-Portuguese house is the setting for Raya. The interiors are atmospheric with tinted windows, mosaic floors, vintage gramophone and ‘30s Shanghai posters.
The world-renowned Blue Elephant offers refined Thai cuisine in an enchanting 115-year-old Sino-Portuguese mansion, once the home of Chinese tin baron Tan Ma Sieng. It wows in every way, from the ornately carved doors and chequered floors to the brass cutlery and stellar service.
Another recipient of the Michelin Bib Gourmand, Ko Benz is famed for its Khao Tom Haeng (broth-less porridge), cooked according to an old family recipe. If you are willing to brave the queues and the wait time, you want to regret it.
