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).

Historical with personal touch.
Discovering Phuket's food history and background is heart-warming. The ambiance of Central Market and Old Phuket Town is just perfect for this tour. Pema the most lively and lovely tour guide made an extra effort of magically whipping up a cake for my husband's birthday. What a personal touch! I definitely recommend this Chef's Tour.

One of the most awesome food tours that I’ve participated! Our guide, Nam was really nice and accommodating throughout the whole tour. Do be prepared to feel overwhelmed by the amount of good food that you are going to eat if you were to go on this tour, so my advice to you is to go with an empty stomach and you will definitely enjoy!

Such a great tour! Pema was an amazing guide and took me to so many cool spots and got to eat so many delicious Thai and baba foods. Pema was super sweet, knowledgeable and knew so many of the locals and vendors personally! I really feel like I got to experience a ton of local flavors and authentic eats. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to taste (more than a taste!) Thai dishes and immerse yourself into the local, Phuketian food scene. Awesome experience!
