Wander through the lively streets lined with fine 19C houses, admiring the highly decorated façades in Thalang and Thanon Krabi streets, in particular. Explore its bustling markets selling vegetables, spices, fruit and clothing and climb Khao Rang hill which commands magnificent views at sunset; perhaps ending your day with some delicious Thai cuisine in one of the town's fine restaurants. As well as idyllic beaches, Phuket offers a wide range of authentic appeals.
