Take a snap with street art paintings at The Old Phuket Town

Phuket Street Art just well known for 2 years, as 2 years ago the famous graffiti artist Alex Face (Patcharapol Tangreun) and Rukkit (Rukkit Kuanhawate) were join a project; F.A.T Phuket (Food Art Old Town) with “So Phuket Group”. At that time, the purpose was to promote about “City of Gastronomy Award” that Phuket received from UNESCO. The award is given to Phuket to show that Phuket is a creative city in the field of food science, so all paintings presented about story of Phuket local food.

The first project

Today I will show the second project at Phuket’s old town. It is not easy to find a car parking at the Old Phuket Town, I would like to recommend you to park at Wat Mongkol Nimit or Jui Tui Shrine car parking. For Wat Mongkol Nimit it very close to Phuket Old Town zone but you should avoid 15.30 – 17.30 (school’s finish time) and after 20.30 (temple’s gate close time). For Jui Tui Shrine’s parking it is a little bit longer distance, it is located on Krabi Road (near a junction).

The next painting is at cafe’in, this say about Phuket’s sweet dish “O-Aew” … very big big one. “Oh Aew” is made from a mixture of Oh Aew seeds, banana and gelatin. Oh-Aew jelly is softer, stickier and more delicious than normal jelly, possibly because all the ingredients used in its making are natural.

It is so hot today.
