Worth an afternoon/evening walk around.
Jul 2021 • Solo
Old phuket Town has preserved some of the architectural styling of previous ages. Although not as bustling as it may once have been, it maintains some of this atmosphere, particularly in the evening.

Although a good half of venues are closed or shuttered, plenty remain open.

Of note in the photo I've uploaded is this building which is locked up and does not appear to have been modified in who knows how long! So whilst the buildings around have been maintained, this one has fallen to dilapidation. Id love to know the story there!

just what you imagine when you walk an old town
Jun 2021
you get a feel of the old town with graffiti around you, small shops, galleries, ice cream parlours. really cute. avoid hot or rainy days, or just duck into a thai coffee shop for a short break. not more than a few hours, best for lunch or dinner.

It's always nice to be back in the old Town of Phuket. Have been there a few times and you see that things are happen and changing. It's a nice place to visit.

Beautiful heritage buildings
Feb 2020 • Friends
During our holidays in Phuket we had visited the old Phuket town as part of our sightseeing tour. This place has narrow bylanes and many old heritage buildings, temples, museum. We had visited the Phuket Trick Eye Museum, Phuket Philatelic Museum, Phuket Baba Museum, Sangtham Shrine, heritage buildings at Soi Romanee, beautiful Mongkol Nimit temple, Thai Hua Museum etc. It was overall a great experience visiting the old Phuket town.

Old Phuket Town is a great but small old style
Sep 2020
Old Phuket Town is a great but small old style colonial town to stroll around for an afternoon /evening. It's quite good to just wonder about popping in and out of places and exploring the small soi here and there.

Its very nice

But there isn't much of it. Unless you are a photo obsessive, you can easily walk around it all in an hour.

Quick stop, could have spent longer browsing

Visited here as part of a tour of Phuket island. Interesting Portugese architecture. lots of shopping opportunities with decent prices and service. We had limited time here but could have spent much longer browsing the various shops
