When talking about Phuket Old Town, most people immediately think of Thalang Road. But the truth is there’s more to Phuket Town than that. One of the recommended roads in Phuket Town to explore beside Thalang Road is Dibuk Road. It runs parallel to Thalang and Krabi roads and features Sino-colonial architecture along both sides of the road.
Beside the many beach destinations, Phuket’s Old Town on the island’s east coast has grown to be one of the favourite tourist attractions on Phuket. Every day you can see tourists strolling along its streets taking photos and window shopping. However, Phuket Old Town is much more than a photo opportunity and once had a prolific past featuring a large market called ‘lard yai’ and many other interesting facets to it that not many people know about.
