You want a totally unique and new experience while in Phuket? One such adventure is the floating restaurants. Sitting on top of the water eating seafood is something right out of a James Bond movie.
Phuket.com says, “Phuket’s floating seafood restaurants are a fun way to dine out and can be found along the east coast of Phuket. The trip involves a fun, brief long-tail boat ride from Laem Hin Pier to the restaurants. It’s a great day out all year round, come rain or shine! This unique dining concept is there only because about 20 years ago a group of friends from Phuket Town were looking for a more relaxing place to dine and relax.
Someone suggested a brilliant idea would be for them to go to a floating fish farm off Laem Hin and ask the fishermen’s family to cook something basic and simple using the seafood they reared. Meanwhile, so the idea went, the group could just hang out, read books or fish away on the farm’s deck (the farms always have a houseboat, where they actually live, connected to it).”
