Phuket town (Phuket town, Thai. Mueang Phuket) is the island's capital and the largest city on the island (see Phuket town on the map). Beaches and tourist area here, and, as a rule, tourists do not stay here, trying to get to the beaches. Indeed, in the city to do practically nothing, except that the interest some of its attractions. Also in Phuket town there are authorities, major shopping malls (and even then, they are not in the heart of the city and beyond), markets, traditional boutiques, banks and other urban infrastructure.

But why do almost every independent tourist visiting the capital of the island – transport. It runs through the city almost the entire local public transport (it's a few bus and taxi Sonthaew), here is the old bus station and the Terminus of all local buses, a couple of kilometers outside the city is a new intercity bus station where all buses arrive far directions.

In General, the infrastructure here makes possible a temporary tourist stay. There are hotels, cafes and restaurants, markets, shops, even tourist agencies. But we do not recommend staying here unless you came here on a business trip. Probably the only advantage of location in Phuket town are lower prices than on the beaches.

To get to Phuket town is possible by local transport like from Phuket airport by bus for 100 baht (schedule here http://airportbusphuket.com/timetable.php), and a new intercity bus terminal (Bus Terminal 2) taxi for 10 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate). Both of these bus arrive in the centre of Phuket town at the old bus terminal (Bus Terminal-1).

From the old bus terminal and Parking a taxi in the city centre can be reached on the most popular beaches of the island, in particular, Patong, Kalim, Karon, Kata, Kata Noi, Nai Harn and Chalong.

Phuket of course all the beaches are beautiful ) And, of course, on who is looking )
If you like to go to Nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and you arrived at the Phuket fun - definitely your choice should fall to Patong.
If you come with your family and for the Sea, and do not plan to take the car - then, of course, Karon or Kata. But they are also the most touristic.
If you want the opposite of quiet rest, and what would you no one bothered, then Patong or Mai Khao. On the beautiful beach of Panwa, AO Yon, on Mai Khao beach with bathing worse. Yes, the beach is sandy but very large depth and the waves can be, even in high season.
If you want everything at once, and that would be less tourists, and whatever the club was, and still restaurants not bad, the Surin or Bang Tao. But firstly it is expensive areas, and secondly, will already be hard without a car.
Well, everyone's favorite Nai Harn beach. Only by car or bike, the beach is beautiful, live mostly winterers and expats. The infrastructure is good, almost all Thais in Russian learned to speak. restaurants are generally not considered.
Nai Thon and Nai Yang is also perfect for a family holiday. Serene sandy beaches, very beautiful. Minus in poor infrastructure areas. Very limited choice of shops and restaurants. But if you lie on the sand arrived - you here :)
Well, the last one in the list, but only because it is not clear what to attribute - Kata Noi. Beautiful sandy beach in a very picturesque place. Of the minuses - no budget accommodation, expensive hotels, and to the same Kata, with its infrastructure, you still have to go :( But the beach luxurious, and not too busy with tourists. ...

Hi, I need advice. Want to come to Phuket for excursions to the Islands (Similan Islands, Krabi, Phi Phi, etc.), beaches like Patong, Kata etc. is not needed.
Then I better stay in Phuket town or did you choose these beaches? To make it faster and more convenient to reach the Islands from the hotel given the fact that travel will pick up from your hotel on the tour. ...

Stay in Patong, there is the whole life, the travel Agency, and from there all going on the tour. It is unlikely for someone going to Phuket town ...

You really are all the same where to stop because anyway during the tour, the bus will collect tourists from all over the island and faster does not work. Only in the South does not recommend (Nai Harn), from there you will be picked up early and come home to you after all. Patonga Yes, from the point of view of logistics, not quite bad. ...

If long-term stay, then it is to be away from the crowds. ...
