Chill Chick Cheap
Phuket is an exciting island destination. In an idyllic position off the southern coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea, Phuket has the golden sands, calm blue waters and coconut palms associated with the perfect tropical vacation. Though Phuket is the most developed of Thailand's islands there are parts of it that still offer romance and seclusion.
Phuket Town is the island's main commercial area and accommodation in the city center is cheap. Phuket Town is mainly a hub for business, with several malls and shopping centers, and aside from shopping is fairly light on actual tourist attractions.
The bustling, administrative centre of Phuket is often overlooked in favour of the beaches, but there's a lot to see and do (and spend your money on!) in Phuket City/Town. Having been recently upgraded to city status, Phuket City features an exciting mix of old and new, simple and sophisticated, peaceful and pulsating.
The activity in Phuket City is nearly around the clock. In the early morning, stoic monks take to the streets on their daily alms rounds and the fresh market buzzes with restaurant owners buying ingredients for the day's meals. Non-stop bustle characterizes the daytime, and lasts well into the evening. Nights are reserved for enjoying good company, whether at a restaurant, a disco, a quiet bar, or a combination of all three.
