Phuket Seafood & Gastronomy Festival 2020

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.

Dates And Venues

  • 15th/16th August- Saphan Hin Park
  • 22nd/23rd August – Rawai
  • 29th/30th August- Patong
  • 05th/06th September – Karon
  • 12th/13th September- Phuket Old Town

Hopefully the weather will be kind and everyone stroll around the festival enjoying great food and light entertainment. It will be a great help and a much needed boost to local businesses so please come if you can. Rawai is the closest one to us so we’ll all be there on the 22nd. Very much looking forward to trying the local lobster, prawn, crab, fish and other delights.

If you have time, then drop by and enjoy the fresh seafood and support local business

I've been enjoying the incredible marine life in our oceans for over 25 years. 13 years ago I became a PADI professional, hoping to introduce as many people as possible to the incredible beauty of the seas.

Having been fortunate enough to dive all over south east and especially Thailand, I enjoy sharing my experience and passion on this blog.

lionfish in phuket Rare & Peculiar Critters

Lionfish – A Smart Fish?

We call them lionfish on this side of the world but they're also none as firefish, zebrafish, butterfly cod and turkeyfish (????) in other areas. We tend to lump them together but there are quite a few different species that we find around Phuket. All have stunning warning colours, are very photogenic, show little or no fear of divers and have toxic fins that can pack quite a punch. Fortunately lionfish are easy to spot and stings are very ra [...]
