Phuket named ‘City of Gastronomy by UNESCO

From 28 April – 1 May 2017, Phuket will host another international event; the 1st meeting of a Gastronomy International Symposium. The meeting includes members of each city that have had a creative City of Gastronomy certificate assigned to them by UNESCO and Phuket is the first city in Asia to receive this honour. We had the chance to discuss this with Phuket City’s Deputy Mayor and the President of Peranakan Phuket Association, Dr. Kosol Tang-Uthai, one of the major supporters who helped Phuket to get this award from UNESCO. Phuketians should be proud of this award that helps carry on the value of Phuket’s food to future generations.
