Not Great For

Big shopping trips

Sometimes the originals simply can’t be bested. Rawai is pretty famous in Phuket, not just for being a phenomenally beautiful and awe-inspiring place to stay, but also for being home to the first tourist beach in Phuket. It was up to this little area to convince people that Phuket was a place worth going back to time and time again. Well, it’s clearly done the job.

You might think that being the first would lead it to be overly commercialised, but that’s not the case here at all. It’s actually perfect for people who want a more peaceful holiday experience and is also a fantastic setting to experience some authentic Thai culture. Rawai has remained an unspoiled gem throughout the years.
