Rawai Seafood Market started as a local fisherman village where you would buy some local catch to take home.
Rawai beach in the very south of Phuket is also known as the Sea Gypsy Village and has always been a bit of an exotic attraction.
The small market grew in popularity and a few restaurants started to cook the fish you just bought across the street.
The concept was popular, fun and cheap, so tourists heard of it.
If you want to dining at the Rawai Seafood Market, it will be a great experience but don’t expect a quiet romantic table for two overlooking the water.
The market is a chaotic place with restaurants & stalls conducting plenty of business.
The market has become a major tourist attraction in the area with bus loads of people visiting everyday.
