Phuket Town

The economic hub of the eponymous island, Phuket Town attracted merchants from China, India, and Portugal long before it became a tourist destination.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Wed): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, then make a trip to Bangla Road, then look for gifts at Dress Men Fashion, and finally make a trip to Big Buddha Phuket. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong), then indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, then enjoy the sand and surf at Patong Beach, and finally get your game on at Football Crazy Golf - Phuket.
