Thalang Road Phuket Thailand 1/2 by Tripoto

Thalang Road Phuket Thailand

Nikhil Garge
On my first day at Phuket, I visited Phuket old town. It takes about an hour to reach Phuket town from Karon beach in a local bus. Old Phuket Town, a historical town in Phuket City is noted for Sino-Portuguese buildings (many converted into guest houses, shops, restaurants and museums). It was fun walking around the town, especially on Thalang road, that has saved most of its old Sino-Portuguese houses. I stayed one night at a guest house on Thalang Road just to experience the night stay in the town. There is not much to do in old town after sunset (with only few restaurants and pubs open after 8 PM). Nevertheless, walking around the town at night is an experience to cherish.
