Fresh seafood is the best thing to eat when in Phuket. Popular Thai food favourites are also very easily found in restaurants across Phuket island. Try Tom Yam Goong for a bit of spice, Pad Thai for a light classic Thai dish, Som Tam papaya salad for a healthier bite, or Green Curry Chicken for a filling meal. You should also try street food in Phuket. Banana pancakes, Chinese dumplings, satay, meatballs, sticky rice and shredded coconuts are just some of the amazing street food available in Phuket. Food in Phuket Town restaurants tend to be cheaper than food found in coastal restaurants.
Patong remains Phuket's largest and liveliest beach resort, but places to party and drink can be found nearly everywhere on the island.Shopping in Bangkok
Most of the island's shopping opportunities are situated in Phuket Town. In addition to some modern shopping centres and department stores, Phuket Town also features several outdoor markets. Ranong may be the largest Phuket Town market, but shoppers can also browse the goods and food sold at the Wirat Hong Yok Road Weekend Market, the Sunday Thalang Market, and the Lad Ploy Khong Market. Chinatown is a good place to shop for traditional antiques and handicrafts. Patong Beach's main shopping options are Beach Road and its surrounding streets as well as a lively night market.
