Old Phuket Town, Phuket Town

(3.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Go for a stroll through the colorful streets of Old Phuket Town and soak in the eclectic architecture and lively atmosphere of Thailand's former tin-mining capital. Throughout the centuries tin attracted both workers and industrialists from all over the world to Phuket, and today the old part of the city remains famous for its eclectic mix of Chinese mansions, Portuguese houses, and other historical architecture. Many of the once residential buildings now house shops, restaurants, cafes, and small museums. The neighborhood especially comes alive during the Sunday markets, when locals set up stalls with snacks and souvenirs, and street performers showcase their talents to passersby. Use our Phuket Town travel itinerary planner to add Old Phuket Town and other attractions to your Phuket Town vacation plans.

  • Go to old town. Interesting architecture. Great massage place named Kims! Dirt cheap! Got one every day. Great way to unwind and stay relaxed. Great cuisine as well .. 
  • 有着丰富食物的街道,全是当地特色的美食,每一样都好吃,分量足,路上还遇到好多当地的学生,他们就在街边玩耍,让我感受很深的就是整洁的环境,没有人随处乱扔垃圾,食物也很好吃,要不是饭量不够真想把整条街的美食都吃个遍

  • Beautiful decor
  • The worst and absolutely disgusting service I have ever encountered in my life. The owner is self-righteous and money greedy. I was harassed and mentally terrorized. They were trying to take a video of me without my permission. Please do not go to this hostel. If you're looking for a cheap one, there's a lot more around the corner. Really, don't book this one.
  • No outside windows and a quite old bed. We didn't sleep well and changed to an other hotel for the next night.
  • I like this place a lot. Especially if you are young and have less money to spend the night in Phuket this place is for you. I have been their twice in the past 2 yrs and the rates have not changed. Rooms are clean with hot shower including breakfast and a nice place to read and chat in the lobby. And the place is very peaceful Also located inside old city phuket so many things are only at walking distance. One the best places you can find at low price in phuket if you dont care to stay near a hotel on the beach.
  • good staff
