Areas in Phuket:
Phuket City or better known as Phuket Town is the biggest city on Phuket Island in Thailand and the capital of the Phuket province. Phuket City has no beach and for that it is less attractive for tourists. That’s why the city offers a good look into the real life of the Thai inhabitants of Phuket.

The city is an ideal place to stop over if you are going or coming from the Koh Phi Phi Islands. The city itself also has quite an interesting centre. There are some interesting colonial style buildings build by Chinese Tin Barons in the last century.
