Old Phuket Town

  Phuket City

A hundred years ago, Phuket was a prosperous tin mining town, and was an international centre with a large community of Chinese and Europeans. They built beautiful homes in the style called Sino-Portuguese – terraced townhouses with narrow frontages and accommodations stretching back from the road. The beautifully furnished interiors often included walled gardens and Chinese inspired decorations. Explore Rommanee, Talang, Yaowarat and Dibuk Roads where the buildings have been lovingly restored to their former glory and now feature antique shops, speciality restaurants and more.
