Phuket Town apartments
Phuket Town is a comfortable distance from the somewhat frenzied nightlife spots of Patong, Kata and Karon, and is a calm, relaxed place to live. Also known (perhaps inappropriately) as Phuket City, the town is still very much a ‘Thai’ area, despite having all the modern amenities a western visitor will need. Our Phuket Town apartments are just ten minutes north of Chalong, five minutes from Central Festival, the biggest shopping mall on the island, and ten minutes from Tesco Lotus and Big C.
Phuket Town is also the centre for history on the island. Centuries before the island of Phuket began attracting the sand-and-sea tourists we see today, it was an important centre for Arab, Indian, Malay, Chinese and Portuguese traders who came to exchange goods for tin and rubber with the rest of the world. Francis Light, a British colonialist who made nearby Penang (in Malaysia) the first of the British Straits Settlements, married a Phuket native and tried unsuccessfully to pull the island into the colonial fold.
Although much of the original multicultural heritage has now disappeared from much of the island, some of the original architecture can be seen and experienced in the province’s capital, Phuket Town. Traces of Sino-Portuguese architecture remain and the city streets, which move to the rhythm of everyday Thai life, feel a long way from the unadulterated hubbub of Patong. For a glimpse of the Phuket behind the westerner-filled tourist traps, bars and beaches, Phuket Town is ideal.
