Wandering Around The ‘Old’ Town Of Phuket

Post Posted: Fri Mar 21, 2014 10:12 pm

by Expat Focus columnist, Anne O'Connell

When getting to know a new place, whether just visiting, or moving there for good, learning about the history and culture is always in the top three of the ‘must do’ list for me. If it’s a place steeped in centuries of history it’s always a treat to explore the ‘old town’ if there is such a thing, and visit any preserved historical sites, taking in the architecture, ambiance and aromas.

Phuket hasn’t disappointed. An afternoon excursion into Phuket’s ‘Old Town’ at the heart of the main city, rewards visitors with the colourful glory of Sino-Colonial architecture. Mansions built by tin Baron’s in the 18th century still stand and streets are peppered with ancient herb shops, fabric sellers and tailors.
