... the west coast as our base. Many of the buildings in the old town are in the sino-Portuguese style with pretty facades that are lit up in different colours in the evening. The old town had a nice mix of cafés, bars, and markets and a bohemian artsy feel to it. It was also a convenient base from which to explore some of the rest of the island.

We haven’t gotten sick once yet, despite the scarey places we have eaten at the road side stalls.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThavorn Grand Plaza Hotel Phuket Town
Big rooms, clean, staff helpful. As a party of 7 we stayed in Dorm room and deluxe double with an extra bed. This hotel is ageing, but gracefully. Facilities are good, location in Phuket town fine. We would happily stay here again.
