Phuket Town is the epicentre of all shopping on Phuket Island. The historical downtown area is referred to as Old Phuket. It is home to numerous shops that offer traditional crafts, antiques, textiles, and souvenirs. Be sure to visit Dibuk, Yaowarat, Phang Nga, and Ratsada Roads. The weekend market Chatuchak Phuket was modeled after the famous bazaar in Bangkok and is best visited at night. Bars are numerous and scattered throughout the city. For authentic Thai cuisine at local prices, a visit to Samkong is a must.
