Where to dine in Phuket this Chinese New Year 2023

Chinese culture and heritage is closely tied to Phuket’s history and local way of life. Thereby, it is unsurprising that there are plenty of sumptuous celebrations here this Chinese New Year 2023.

The dining scene in Phuket has been growing fast during the last years, to the point where we can’t really keep up with it sometimes. This Chinese New Year is a fine example, as the beachside escape is packed with mouthwatering dining offers to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit. If you have any plans on escaping the bustling Bangkok this Chinese New Year weekend, we promise that you won’t be missing out on any dim sum or Peking duck in vibrant Phuket city.
