Where to Eat in Phuket

Americans will celebrate Independence Day in 2020 on Saturday July Fourth. Needless to say, it is the one of the most important holidays of the year in the United States.

Many of the U.S. nationals living in Phuket will celebrate the Fourth of July Fourth the way it is celebrated in the U.S.

For example, they will eat barbecue ribs, hamburgers, grilled steak, fried chicken, hot dogs, or other American favourites.

But you don’t have to hail from the Land of the Free to indulge in American fare in the Land of Smiles.

So why not leaving the cooking to someone else and celebrate the Fourth of July at one of the many American eateries dotting the Land of Smiles?

But make sure to call ahead to make sure you can book a table at your favourite American eatery.
