The economic hub of the eponymous island, Phuket Town attracted merchants from China, India, and Portugal long before it became a tourist destination.
Keep things going the next day: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, don't miss a visit to Bangla Road, and then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
