You can also find those in Phuket which are overdeveloped in areas like Patong, making them quite noisy because visitors like visiting them due to their popularity. Then of course, you will find those that are a little on the quieter sides of Phuket such as Naithon or Kamala. On the east coast of Phuket, you will find some that are a bit underdeveloped then we also have those that are a bit on the inland areas, away from the beaches and seas.
Whatever your choice, whether it is looking for high end hotels in Phuket town or those that a bit more on the affordable side, there will always be something for everyone. So, let’s have a look at the ones in Phuket town.
Phuket city hotels
Phuket city is officially the town centre of Phuket. A lot of business gets conducted here. For one, if you are planning on getting your accommodation within the town, chances are there will be no beach near the capital. So, unless you plan your beach tours separately, the experience will definitely be quite different from staying at beach hotels.
That doesn’t mean that as a tourist, you won’t enjoy living in one of Phuket town hotels. There lots of businesses that are tourist oriented too. If your visit to Phuket is a long one, you will enjoy lots of Phuket lifestyle by staying in the town hotels such as the markets, shrines, museums and even some popular festivals like the Sunday Walking Street Markers as well as the infamous Phuket Vegetarian Festival. Trust me, town living is quite different from the party life of the beach hotels and bars. From back packing dorms to the flashier boutique hotels, you will find it all in Phuket town.
