Rawai Beach on the South end of the island has a local fishing village called Gypsy Village. One side of the street are the fisher-women selling the days catch, the other side are the restaurants, souvenirs and local crafts.
No telling what you might see here. Families live out their lives along the shore, vendors sell just about anything and as we were eating our lunch a guy came through selling honey comb from a bucket he just harvested from somewhere… Oh yes, sauteed basil shrimp fresh from across the street and tom yum soup with stalks of lemon grass so big you could hit a baseball out of the park, So good.
Back in town renovation on the old colonial buildings is an ongoing effort, some beautiful some not so much. Circa 1800’s to early 1900’s.
