Phuket was last year named among the world’s top 10 tourist destinations but the Covid-19 outbreak has wrecked its tourism industry worth Bt400-billion per year, closing hotels, restaurants and other tourism businesses – many of them for good.
But visitors are now flowing back to the island, where a moving feast now awaits them. From August 15 streets will be lined with booths selling Phuket’s renowned seafood treats while restaurants and hotels serve up a sophisticated array of southern specialities.
The Phuket Tastival & Seafood Gastronomy festival runs from August 15 until September 20 at the following destinations:
August 15-17 at Chaloem Phra Kiat 10 park, Saphan Hin bridge along the seafront Kho Chan Canal.
August 22-23 at Rawai Beach.
August 29- 30 at Dolphin Park, Patong Beach.
September 5-6 at Palai Beach.
September 12-13 at Queen Sirikit's 72nd Anniversary Chalerm Prakiat Park (Dragon Park).
September 19-20 at Laguna Coast in Choeng Thale.
