Officials in Phuket plan to build 2 new structures in different parts of the island province. A sky walk is planned for Phuket’s southern village of Rawai, and a glass terrace is planned for Surin Beach in the northern Thalang district.

The President of the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation, Rewat Areerob, said that Phuket is trying to build more landmarks to draw more tourists. Rewat told The Phuket Express that the sky walk and glass terrace will be free of charge for all visitors.

“We want to attract more tourists to Phuket with new places other than the famous places that some of them have already visited.”

The sky walk in Rawai is set to be built on Khao Dang, or Red Hill. Rewat said the administration plans to build the new landmarks at the end of this year, and the beginning of next year.

After its tourism economy tanked due to Covid-19 restrictions, Phuket is finally welcoming back visitors. Phuket welcomed more than 1.7 million visitors from January to the end of May, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Phuket office. The majority of international visitors to Phuket since the beginning of 2022 has come from India. Around 52,000 Indian travellers were there between May and June.

But Phuket officials have had to work hard to help the island province rise from the ashes of Covid-19. They have had to get creative and come up with new projects to help draw visitors to Phuket’s culture and natural beauty. The efforts seem to slowly be paying off.
