Organising to celebrate the delicious and internationally renowned tastes of the island province and other food, fish, drinks and desserts from around Thailand. Phuket Tasty Fest 2016 takes place from 9-11 September. Visitors will be able to taste and learn about unique Thai dishes and explore the cultural melting pot of Phuket. The festival takes place from 16:00 to 22:00 Hrs along Thalang Road in Phuket Town.
As so many people have settled in Phuket over the centuries, bringing their own traditions and dishes, the island’s food is distinct from the rest of Thailand and boasts flavours and dishes that cannot be found anywhere else. In 2015 UNESCO declared Phuket to be one of its “Gastronomy Cities” as a way of celebrating and protecting Phuket’s unique dishes. There are only 18 “Gastronomy Cities” across the world and Phuket is the first place in ASEAN to receive this accolade. It sounds as a compliment to a title of the 2nd best islands in Asia , that was granted to Phuket earlier this year.
Phuket Tasty Fest 2016 will give visitors the chance to taste a wide range of Thai food and drinks from all regions of the kingdom. There will be cooking demonstrations from well-known chefs and a celebrity cooking competition.
