The economic hub of the eponymous island, Phuket Town attracted merchants from China, India, and Portugal long before it became a tourist destination.
Explore hidden gems such as Kayaking & Canoeing and Phuket Trickeye Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Phuket Town: Rawai (Promthep Cape, Yanui Beach, & more), Kamala (Scuba & Snorkeling, Wat Baan Kamala, & more) and Nai Yang (Naiyang Beach, Wat Mongkol Wararam, & more). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong), stop by Suit Fitter Phuket, look for all kinds of wild species at Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, and expand your horizons at Chalong Bay Rum Distillery & Restaurant.

To find photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Phuket Town trip itinerary planner.
