Phuket Town, Thailand

The economic hub of the eponymous island, Phuket Town attracted merchants from China, India, and Portugal long before it became a tourist destination.
Attractions like Patong Beach and Local Dive Thailand make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Phuket Town side-trips: Helge Fashion Custom Tailor (in Kata Beach), Green Elephant Sanctuary Park (in Choeng Thale) and Karon (Karon View Point, Wat Suwan Khiri Khet, &more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Big Buddha Phuket, make a trip to Bangla Road, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and browse the different shops at Jungceylon.
