Phuket Old Town Tours

star-1
1 Review
Phuket Old Town
The prominence of Phuket’s beaches and out islands mean that Phuket Old Town is often overlooked. Yet, it offers a wealth of 19th-century architectural delights and fantastic photo ops. Beside the latticed windows of Malay-style shop-front buildings on Soi Rommanee, Old Phuket Town boasts temples, museums, and restaurants.
 
The Basics
Due to the compact size of Phuket Old Town, the area lends itself well to walking tours and is easy to explore in a couple of hours. It's a popular choice for visitors with limited time. The majority of Phuket sightseeing tours combine a stop at the old town with a visit to Wat Chalong, Phuket’s most famous Buddhist temple, and the Karon Viewpoint. More in-depth tours of Phuket Old Town reveal the wet market and Chinpracha House (Baan Chinpracha).
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Phuket Old Town is a must-see for travelers interested in colonial history and architecture.
  • Don’t miss the Amulet Market for special Buddhist souvenirs.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and a hat if you’re planning to explore old town on foot.
  • By day and night, old town takes on a different identity, so it’s worth visiting twice.
 
When to Get There
If you’re planning to explore Old Phuket Town on foot, its recommended to do so early in the morning, before the midday heat makes sightseeing uncomfortable. If you do need a break, Phuket Old Town has a plethora of cafes and bars that you can dip into for a cold drink. At night, Phuket Old Town’s bars come to life with live music and free-flowing drinks.
 
How to Get There
If you’re staying by the beach, you can take either public transport or a chartered taxi to old town. If you’re staying in one of the many nearby hotels, all attractions are within walking distance.
 
Culinary Delights in Old Phuket Town
Phuket’s vibrant mix of cultural influences means that its cuisine is as rich and varied as its architecture. A prime location beside the sea means it’s a great place to try seafood and classic southern Thai dishes such as tom som pla krabok, a hot and sour fish soup, and gaeng sataw, a combination of green beans and prawns.
