Romanee Street - One of the features of Phuket shophouses, or row houses as they are often called, is that the front verandahs form a sheltered walkway with intricate stucco designs gracing their facades. Walkways and interiors are covered with ceramic tiles with elaborate motifs.  Phuket has a long association with European trading nations such as  Portugal, Great Britain and France with an established population of ethnic Chinese who were the original traders. Phuket City has always been a meeting place of Thai and Malays and the overall result was a fascinating mixture of architecture.  Therefore the look and feel of old Phuket is unique in Thailand.
