Phuket Fish Market
The seafood market is located on the east side of Phuket on Rawai beach. But it is called a beach conditionally, as the coast is dirty and often cluttered with fishing boats. Usually in this area live only winterers and expats, and of course, the locals themselves.
Depending on your attitude towards Southeast Asia, you will either rate variety of assortment in the fish market, or burst out negative comments about unsanitary conditions, poverty, arrogance of children fishermen and high prices. Going to the fish market in Phuket, you need to keep this in mind and faced with reality – relax and smile. Do not make a face, do not wrinkle your nose and generally not to express my displeasure, for the gypsies are people insightful. Yes, sea gypsies, who are actually are engaged in fishing and selling seafood at most Seafood markets in Thailand.
On the approaches to the mall you can be surrounded by a crowd of small hooligans who beg for money. God forbid you to manifest neglect or aggression towards children, as if aggressively they didn’t harass you – just walk by or cook a trifle on something. Begin to swear at them or threaten threatening – older gypsies will do, and before the police arrive you will have time to redeem for the full program, and not seafood. Smile and enjoy shopping in the ranks, where live splashing products. I was lucky when I was there a couple of times, I have something children did not come across at all, but the people say that it happens in all.

Given the high traffic and popularity this fish market in Phuket, bargaining for a fall – occupation time consuming, but real.

Well, and the trick of the whole market, in my opinion, is diversity. there is markets with more adequate prices, but the choice there will be poorer. AT the rest is just an ordinary fish market next door to a village where fishermen and their families live. With all the attendant flavors and autistic exterior.
