Phuket Old Town in Phuket


Phuket Old Town
Phuket

Phuket Old Town has a group of buildings which were reminiscent of European architecture. The beginning of the tin boom in the 19th century led to construction of many fine mansions and shops that are still well preserved. The architectural style, typical of the region, is described as Sino-Portuguese and has a strongly Mediterranean character.

At the heart of Phuket's Old Town is where you can find Thalang Road, the commercial center of Phuket's past. Other streets which you will see the "Old Phuket" are Phang-nga road, Yaowarat road, Krabi road, and specially on Dibuk Road you can find old wooden doors with Chinese fretwork carving. Some other old European-style buildings of note are the Provincial Hall, the Phuket Courthouse, and the Siam City Bank.

How to get there: Phuket Old town is within walking distance from the city center.
