Phuket City (often reffered to as Phuket Town) is made up of 2 sub-districts, Talat Yai and Talat Nuea
and even a part of Wichit sub-district. Phuket City is an absolute pleasure to explore with its eclectic mix of ‘old meets new’ attractions combined with a strong sense of tradition that is evident throughout. The capital of the province that is Phuket should be a must visit on everyone’s travel itinerary. The town is home to many architectural attractions from its former days as a hub for Chinese merchants, and boasts a vibrant nightlife unlike anywhere else on the island. In addition, its wide selection of eateries offers some of the best dining that can be found on Phuket. While Phuket City offers a bustling atmosphere in its own right, it is less hectic than some of the bigger beach towns along the west coast. It has a culturally rich feel to it, which is evident along the streets of Phuket Old Town. Here you’ll spot striking Sino-Portuguese buildings in all sorts of bright colours. With quaint cafés, boutique shopping opportunities, lively nighttime entertainment and multiple markets, Phuket City will engage your mind and satisfy your senses.
