Enjoy a seafood barbecue on a boat
The legendary Phijittra is a unique three-storey boat decked with Chinese dragons and exquisite Chinese art. It whisks visitors off for a three-hour cruise to enjoy the sunset over the Andaman Sea, and there is no other boat like it on the island. For many, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Guests can enjoy a delicious seafood barbecue buffet and a variety of drinks, while watching the vibrant hues of red, blended with oranges and purples, disappear into the darkness. The dragon boat experience is an excursion that runs year-round. However, there may be some cancellations between the rainy season months of April through to November. The Phijittra boat departs from the quiet port of Chalong Bayon on Phuket’s south coast every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 5pm. An adult ticket is £54, children get on board for a reduced price and those under six go free.
