Kamala is the perfect destination if you're looking to spend most of your holiday time on or around the beach. This small resort town used to be a quiet fishing village until the end of the seventies, when it started its slow but steady development. Although Kamala today is more tourist-friendly, it still somehow retains much of its quaint seaside-town soul. The peaceful northern part of the two-kilometre-long Kamala Beach is a well looked after surf spot in low season (May-November), while its southern part is a great family-friendly strip of sand fringed by shallow waters.

We have found the best of Kamala’s hotels, attractions, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife, which are all presented below. Our selection offers an eclectic choice of venues apt to satisfy everyone’s tastes and budgets.

Phuket Town (officially renamed Phuket City in 2004) is the capital city and economical hub of Phuket in South Thailand. The city was created during the tin mining’s boom between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Today, Phuket Old Town is the witness of this era: the Sino-colonial district is the liveliest part of the city, a must-visit vintage area hosting trendy restaurants, boutiques and bars in 100-year-old houses and mansions.

Through time the city has grown around its original district; exponentially since the advent of tourism in the late ‘80s. Nevertheless, Phuket Town retains much of its Thainess and the charms of a small provincial town. With our knowledge and expertise, our Phuket Town Top 10 lists below make for the perfect introductions to this vibrant and fascinating area.
