Phuket is a nice place, but there isn't much to see/do. I spent 1 night - went to see the Giant Buddha and then I visited the town. The architecture is quite interesting. Great restaurants. It's a good base if you wanna visit the islands!

Exceptional
Typical Thailand style with shops and restaurants at every steps and enjoyed the old time Portugal architecture. Food-lovers paradise and just walking everywhere. We expected Phuket as a small holiday town with beach resorts but found a big city with everything in it.

Phuket town itself has beautiful views and beaches, I would recommend hiring a car to view the city than any other mode unless you are fan of public transport which is of very low standards. Best tour that we had was John Crays tour from Phanang Bay one should do the same.

Most of the streets in the old Sino-Portuguese centre of Phuket old town, centred around Phang Nga road and the central day market building, offer plenty to see. The renovated shop houses show lots of period style, and there are any number of small coffee shops and restaurants in the area to relax and watch the day go by. There are several Chinese temples in the area too that are worth exploring.

Well actually is in Phi Phi nearby longbeach area where they have shark point. You can snorkle there and encounter some black tip sharks about the size of 1.3 mtr...I did and it was an amazing welcome experience to start our adventure trip ahead in Phi Phi and Phuket...we had a blast during our first time visiting Phi Phi and Phuket

The Sino-Portuguese streets around Phuket old city are home to any number of restaurants, including a number of excellent restaurants offering Italian influenced food, and some pleasant "gentrified" coffee shops and cafes.

Buses to Patong beach, Karon beach, Kata beach, Surin beach, Nai Harn beach
