The floating seafood restaurants of Phuket can be found along the east coast of the island. In Thai, this group of restaurants are called Krachang, meaning fishing basket.

It only takes a five minute free longtail boat ride to reach these restaurants from Leam Hin pier.

These floating restaurants consist of several large wooden rafts which are connected together and which have a series of roof shelters. The tables are simple with wooden benches. So actually it is all fairly basic yet relaxing and unique and of course the seafood is both fresh and excellent.

Fish, peawns, crabs and other seafood are all kept in wood and net enclosures held between each raft. Guests can simply choose their seafood by walking along planks between the enclosures.

Other interesting fish kept in the enclosures include: Leopard sharks, Blow fish, Moray Eels, Groupers and Mantis Shrimps.

How to get there:

Heading south from the aiport on route 402 towards Phuket Town, there is a district called Koh Kaew close to Boat Lagoon. This is just a few kilometers north of Phuket Town. You will enter a series of curves on this road. At the brow of the hill turn left into a road with a sign saying "The Village Resort". Follow this small road around for about one kilometer and you will reach Leam Hin pier. At the pier there are free longtail boats to take you to the restaurants.
