By Phuket "towns" do you mean "Phuket town"?

If so, On On is one of the cheapest and right in the middle of "old town" which is your best shopping in Phuket town IMO.

There are many others.

Specifying your budget (and maybe your age) would help as some of these more run down places attract a much younger crowd who enjoy the comardarie of the "Lonely Planet" crowd.

If you mean other Phuket towns, Patong of course is the next biggest and by far has the most tourists. There are cheap places there also but shopping prices aren't as low perhaps.

A little more info about your life-style and what you are shopping for might help.

we just turned 22 =) and tour plans for 3 days in phuket might be as follow:-

1st day-.

stay in Phuket town,would Thavorn Grand Plaza Hotel be a good choice for a budget hotel? Because im looking for hotels that is near to open markets or shopping complex that can do bargains.Cheap chlothes,bags etc..

2nd Day-

Might be staying at Patong Area.But still have no idea where to stay.We would also like the hotels to be near the shops that can do bargain but also a very romantic place to stay.My Budget would be around than $150-200 (singapore dollars).Can you recommend any beach resort that fulfill my above descriptions?

3rd Day-

Will be going to the phi-phi islands by speedboat,so will be back around 5pm.Do you have any idea what other activities besides shopping that we can do??

4th day

Morning will be going back home..

Thank you..
