Phuket Town itself is an interesting, and often overlooked, destination in it’s own right. Phuket Town has a wide range of goof value hotels and restaurants, and lots of cultural attractions. Phuket was, towards the end of the 19th Century and early 20th Century, an important tin mining centre. The island’s prosperity attracted a large number of Chinese immigrants to the island, many of whom settled in Phuket Town. Phuket Town’s Old Quarter has lots of interesting old Sino-Portuguese buildings some of which, such the Chinpracha House, are very large and have been opened to the public to visit.
