Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos presided over the opening ceremony yesterday (Apr 15*) joined by Phuket Phuket Vice Governor Pichet Panapong, Phuket Provincial Administrative Organisation (OrBorJor, or PPAO) President Rewat Areerob, Patong Mayor Chalermsak Manesri, Mueang Phuket District Chief Suwit Suriyawong and other respected guests.

Visitors could enjoy various seafood treats and local dishes along with sweet delicacies and more. The entertainment part on the first day of the event, which will last until Apr 17, included vaious live performances and shows ranging from traditional Thai dance to modern music by young bands.

The fair was well attended by both local residents and tourists, PR Patong said in its report. Yet all the measures to protect people against COVID-19 were in place.

CBRE Phuket

The festival in Rawai follows a number of similar Roi Rin Lay fairs that have occurred island-wide in recent weeks, including at Saphan Hin, Karon, Kamala, Nai Yang, Phuket Town and Cherng Talay. As officials keep stressing, the Roi Rim Lay and other food festivals being held across the island are helping to alleviate household financial stress, increase household income, create employment for entrepreneurs. The previous Roi Rim Lay festival was held at Sarasin Bridge on Apr 11-12.
