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, 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.
