Phuket Town Hotel & Accommodation

Phuket Town is the capital of the island province, and is 32 km from Phuket International Airport. Things that deserve a look include Chinatown, Phuket Culture Museum, Phuket Butterfly Farm and Phuket Zoo. There's great eating for all budgets, too, and around-the-clock sights, from monks doing their rounds in the early morning to late-night feasting and bar-hopping. Songthaews AKA minibuses and taxis can get you around to places like Patong Beach around 45 minutes away.
