Phuket Art Village

Arts Centre in Rawai

A group of talented Thai artists have come together to set up this bohemian, banyan-shaded arts commune, just off Rawai's main strip. Feel free to wander the wonderfully creative home-studio-galleries packed with (mostly) boldly contemporary original artwork and, if you're lucky, meet some of the eight resident artists.

Standouts include Red Gallery, with its dreamlike animal canvases; Prasopuk Gallery, where plastic waste is reimagined into art; and Love Art Studio, crafted entirely from colour-washed reclaimed wood.
