What to do at Boat Avenue Phuket?


Boat Avenue Phuket is a relatively new shopping and dining neighbourhood with growing popularity at the entrance of the Laguna complex in Bangtao, Cherngtalay. It started modestly a few years back, progressively attracting more trendy restaurants, bars and shops until it became today’s fashionable shopping and dining destination.

Boat Avenue Phuket evolved and remained smart enough to keep the area spacious with a fun, stylish touch that changed the face of Laguna Complex. The site is spacious and inviting, with a great mix of local food and restaurants, including a few by the lake, creating a relaxing atmosphere at the end of the day.


Where and what to eat


Boat Avenue Phuket will spoil you with dining choices. There are dozens of restaurants serving a surprisingly vast selection of cuisines. Of course, you’ll be able to enjoy Thai food and seafood, but some sophisticated European food and Bampot Kitchen received a Michelin plate.

Porto de Phuket

Porto de Phuket Mall in Bangtao

Porto de Phuket is an open-air community mall next to the popular Boat Avenue Phuket. It’s of the same brand as Central Phuket, and you will therefore recognise some of the typical shops and franchise restaurants, but the concept here is a little different, so don’t expect to find a multi-storey shopping mall.
