PHUKET TOWN OR “PHUKET CITY”
The bustling, administrative centre of Phuket is often overlooked in favour of the beaches, but there’s a lot to see and do in Phuket Town. Phuket Town features an exciting mix of old and new, simple and sophisticated, peaceful and pulsating. The activity in Phuket Town is nearly around-the-clock. In the early morning, stoic monks take to the streets on their daily alms round and the fresh market buzzes with restaurant owners buying ingredients for the day’s meals. Non-stop bustle characterizes the daytime and lasts well into the evening. Nights are reserved for enjoying good company, a restaurant, a quiet bar, a not so quiet bar or a visit to the market.
This massive statue of Buddha has already become an iconic symbol of Phuket, and a must-see for tourists. From the car park, there’s a stiff climb up 78 steps to reach the statue itself, and it’s a pretty impressive sight. The structure is 45 metres high and sits on a base 25 metres in diameter. The podium is decorated with a large lotus flower motif. The views from this elevation are absolutely stunning. Clear blue skies and azure waters frame emerald-green islands, rocky promontories and silver sand beaches. It’s delightful to see that so much of the island is still verdant forest.
Chalong Temple, or Wat Chalong, is replete with history and legend. Many stories have been told about how the miracles performed there and how the wat played a pivotal and healing role in the fighting between Chinese secret societies (‘Angyee’) in 1876. Wat Chalong is officially called ‘Wat Chaitararam’ by royal decree but not many people use that name. Located in the northern part of Tambol Chalong (‘tambol’ means sub-district in Thai) on Chao Fa West Rd, the wat is close to many local attractions. The name ‘Chalong’ means ‘festival’ in Thai – many years ago the area was named ‘Chalang’ after locals, fearing Burmese invaders, had moved from Thalang district. However, the Thai government pointed out that no such word existed in the Thai language and ordered local officials to change the name.
