Prices for food and souvenirs in Phuket

Phuket is perhaps the most popular destination among tourists from all countries who want to see Thailand. Connected to the mainland by several bridges, the island does not lack goods and products. The generous waters of the Andaman Sea regularly deliver delicious delicacies to the table. Therefore, food prices in Phuket are quite reasonable compared to other exotic island resorts.

HOW MUCH DOES BREAKFAST?

Breakfast in cafes and restaurants is served from 07:00 to 10:00. At such an early hour, a rare person on vacation will drive himself out of a comfortable bed. The owners of small catering enterprises know this, therefore they do not impede themselves with work. It is economically unprofitable to open a restaurant for a couple of visitors, although there are enviable exceptions.

Mostly tourists eat in restaurants at hotels, often breakfast is automatically included in the price. Even if you are not a guest of a hotel, no one will object to your presence. At your service 2 types of breakfast:

Continental (from 250 baht). It includes: fried eggs (omelet), vegetables (slices of tomatoes and cucumbers), toast, jam, butter, a glass of juice (orange or pineapple), a cup of coffee or tea.
Buffet (from 500 baht). It is a standard set of food and drinks: cold appetizers, pastries, granola, yogurts, eggs of all kinds, several dishes of national Thai cuisine, fruits, vegetables.
If you are lucky enough to find a working cafe, then the breakfast menu is not much inferior to the hotel in terms of the variety of delicacies, but the price of dishes is much lower.

Continental breakfast – 140 baht.
American breakfast (the same as continental, but only without vegetables) – 130 baht.
Farm breakfast (toast, jam, coffee, juice) – 120 baht.
Thai breakfast (fruit salad, coffee, juice) – 110 baht.
Coffee, 2 croissants (rolls), juice – 100 baht.

If you move away from the beach for some distance, food and drink prices will be much nicer. You can dine in a cafe for tourists, a cafe for locals or in a restaurant. In the latter, the cost of dishes will be more expensive. Remember, in any institution, European cuisine will cost more than Thai.

A number of establishments have a Russian menu thanks to the Russian-speaking owners. The cost of okroshka, borsch or aspic includes nostalgia for the motherland, and for this you will have to fork out.

Some specialties of fresh fish and seafood in catering, regardless of their price category, may not be. Since the fishermen deliver their catch in the evening, when the hungry tourists returned from the beach and go on an evening exercise and adventure.

On average, lunch for one person will cost in:

Cafe for local – from 100 baht.
cafe for tourists – from 200 baht.
restaurant – from 600 baht.
It is difficult to guess the average check, as the appetites are different for young ladies on an eternal diet and a strong man.
