Soi Rommanee, Phuket

Soi Rommanee, Phuket

With the sandy beaches, peaceful temples, warm climate, friendly people and luxury that can fit anyone’s budget, Phuket has it all; no wonder it is one of the most popular holiday destinations.

Amidst all the popular attractions scattered around the city, are the smaller, lesser known attractions that sweep you off your feet in Phuket. One such place is the Soi Rommanee! Considered as one of the hidden treasures of this holiday paradise, the Soi Rommanee is a must visit for those who adore architecture, history and, of course, photography.

Located on the Talang Road, the area is filled with row houses that date back over a hundred years. In those days, this area was one of the busiest neighborhoods in the town, and why not, it was the city’s popular brothel! In fact, Rommanee, itself translates to happiness. Although very popular in the old days, as time progressed the locality got deserted with many of the buildings neglected. However, today, the area is fast growing into a trendy residential hub seeing a good number of the row houses retouched and returned to their former glory. If you are lucky you might even spot some rare, vintage cars, since residents of this area just love to collect antiques.
