Thanon Dibuk (Dibuk Road), Phuket
Parallel to the famous Thalang Road, where the bustling Sunday Walking Street Market takes place, Dibuk Road stretches for approximately 800 meters. Starting from the old Dibuk Mansion in the west and ending at the old Song Ho Book Shop in the east, this street is steeped in historical significance.
As you meander along Dibuk Road, you'll encounter a charming collection of old, renovated Sino-Portuguese shophouses that exude the unique architectural style of Phuket. These beautifully restored buildings, with their vibrant facades, transport visitors back in time while offering a glimpse into the town's colonial past.
What sets the west side of Dibuk Road apart is its meticulous renovation and attention to detail. Every shophouse in this area has been repainted with pastel colors, lending an enchanting ambiance to the street. To preserve the aesthetic appeal and create a visually pleasing atmosphere, all the electric cables have been skillfully buried, making Dibuk Road even more picturesque. This thoughtful touch allows visitors to capture beautiful photographs without the disruption of unsightly wires.
Furthermore, the west side of Dibuk Road boasts a delightful array of cafes and Thai restaurants, some of which have been serving local cuisine for decades. If you're seeking an authentic culinary experience, you'll find an abundance of options that showcase traditional Thai flavors and culinary traditions.
