This is a small, manageable place to visit and has a series of beautiful buildings. Several others have mentioned the "firecracker oven" and that took us by surprise - every time it happened which was often! Phuket is super hot (temperature-wise) so I'd recommend getting here in the early morning. We were there midday and were just too hot to really explore the way I wish we had. All we could think of was swimming! The Phuket Botanic Gardens are nearby and we enjoyed combining the two. A post about it on our blog.
