A beautiful place to wander around, you’ll find shrines, temples (both Buddhist and Chinese in structure), little cafes and museums galore in Phuket’s Old Town. Check out the Amulet Market that attracts Buddhists from all over the world and has a collection of personal religious talismans of varying specialities and prices. Dibuk Road holds quirky cafes, textile and art shops and the On On Hotel, which was featured in the movie The Beach.
