Phuket town is a small town. At downtown, many old buildings and small shops, offering many things, from antiques to dried fish. Other than those are usual shops like pharmacy, mini market, shoes, clothes, etc. For those who enjoyed to see old structures of buildings and houses, Phuket town is interesting. For people like my husband, it's more interesting to explore food around this town.
We had lunch at a small restaurant that has southern Thailand menu, so it's different in taste and look than Thai's food we used to eat at Jakarta.
At the way back home, we stopped by at Central. It's a mall. There are 2 malls in Phuket town, Central and Big C.
We bought some fruits in the supermarket inside.
The bus to go back to Patong did not stop at Patong Beach. It stopped at Karon Beach so we have to continue by riding Tuk-tuk which we have to pay THB 100 (after bargaining, of course) to get to our hotel. The appereance of Tuk-tuk at Phuket is different with Tuk-tuk at Bangkok. Tuk-tuk in Bangkok is more like Bajaj in Jakarta, 3 wheels. Tuk-tuk in Phuket is bigger because it uses minivan like Suzuki Carry. So, it is 4 wheels. Both are windy because the window is wide open. I forgot to take pictures of Tuk-tuk at Phuket but if you are curious, you can search in google to see the difference.
