Phuket Recognized for Gourmet Delights

While Phuket is famed for its heavenly beaches and lush tropical landscape; the island has also built a strong reputation for culinary achievement. According to a report in The Phuket News, the island was one of 47 new destinations recently added to UNESCO’s Creative Cities list for its gastronomic appeal.

Started in 2004, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network aims to develop international cooperation between cities. It is focused on investing in creativity as a key driver for sustainable development, social inclusion and cultural vitality. The network comprises 116 member cities. The list is organized around seven different categories: crafts and folk art, design, film, gastronomy, literature, media arts and music,

According to Yuthasuk Supasorn, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), this latest accolade is a clear signal that Phuket is no longer just a beach resort. “Being recognized by the United Nations’ most important cultural organization for its culinary creativity is an added asset,” he said. “Phuket is already world famous for its seafood, and promotion of Thai cuisine is one of the TAT’s topmost priorities because it is an indispensable part of the travel and tourism experience.”

Thai cuisine has long been a firm favourite with foodies across the world and Phuket is renowned as one of the best destinations for those in search of high-quality seafood. There is a plentiful array of dining experiences for visitors on the island to enjoy, including street food, sophisticated eateries and private catering options.

Thanks to the high number of discerning holidaymakers that visit the island each year, a wealth of upmarket restaurants has sprung up around the island. The Sunday brunch buffets available at a handful of Phuket’s fashionable beach clubs have also become one of the highlights of Phuket’s social scene.

However, visitors in search of exquisite flavours whilst they are on holiday don’t even need to leave their place of accommodation. Luxury travellers renting out one of the islands private holiday properties often enjoy the services of a professional Thai chef, so they can enjoy the gastronomic delights of the island within the exclusive surroundings of their holiday home.
