Phuket is typically known for amazing beaches, lovely resorts, and the occasional party-scene. We took a different route and decided to explore Old Town Phuket. Walking around Phuket Town allows you to see the local lifestyle, including a visit to a local Chinese-style Buddhist shrine and a stop in the oldest apothecary in town. Just walking along the streets with the beautiful facades of the shops and homes gives one a feeling of being lost in time.
As with any tour we go on food is a big part, so we tried local Dim sum (Laura's favorite), a cuisine brought here by Hokkien immigrants in the 19th century and the Muslim- influenced Roti bread.
