On the second stop of my seven destination tour of Asia I visited Phuket in Thailand. While Phuket is best known for beaches there is an interesting old town area in the provincial capital city, Phuket Town.
I was there a few years ago so I went and had another look to see what has changed. Over the last few years there has been a bit of a hipster movement going on here, with little cafes and galleries popping up. Read more about this at the Carlson Blog:
Phuket: The Town, The Island, and The Province.
While I was in Phuket I stayed at the Radisson Blu Plaza Resort Phuket Panwa Beach.
