The markets found on the island offer the freshest of seafood. Early risers are in for a good bargain if they visit the markets first thing in the morning. If you are staying at a Phuket resort, you’ll definitely sample some just-off-the-stove seafood dishes – an example would be restaurants proffered alongside Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas.
