There are boho-chic boutiques scattered throughout the Old Town selling jewellery, women’s fashion, fabrics and souvenirs, as well as many whimsical art galleries and antique shops. Phuket Town also hosts several good markets, including the massive Weekend Market and Sunday Walking St.

To Market, To Market

A wonderful way to embrace Phuket Town's local flavour is by getting lost in its markets. The Weekend Market is the biggest of the bunch, but the Sunday-evening Walking St in the heart of the Old Town is more atmospheric and originally stocked. There's also the Indy Market, loved by local Phuketians, along with, for fresh produce, Thanon Ranong Day Market.
