Try Delicious Phuket Seafood at The 2020 Gastronomy Festival
The upcoming Phuket Seafood and Gastronomy Festival is one such example of how Phuket is trying its very best to stimulate the local tourism market. Over the next five weekends at various locations around the island you’ll get a chance to try fantastic fresh seafood. The venues have been chosen so that you can enjoy seafood and sea view, a challenge for Phuket Old Town..
Not Just Food
As well as delicious prepared dishes, there’ll also be the chance to buy the freshest seafood from the surrounding waters. Decorations will reflect traditional Phuket fisherman’s lifestyle and entertainment will be on show at all venues. Some exhibits will highlight food hygiene and safely preparing seafood. So if you’re a seafood fan, then drop by to pick up some great tips, dishes or ingredients for yourself.
The Phuket Seafood and Gastronomy Fair is mainly aimed at the Thai domestic tourists but it will be a great way to spend the evening for expats. The hope is that the festival will show tourists that Phuket is a safe place to visit and supply some much needed income to local business operators.
