Phuket to build new skywalk in Rawai and glass terrace at Surin Beach

Rawai Skywalk

On June 28, Rewat Areerob, the President of Phuket OrBorJor (the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation or provincial government), updated the public on two new landmarks being constructed on Phuket, which are expected to attract more travellers to the island.

The number of foreign visitors are starting to rise again since tourism was relaunched, albeit with a long list of restrictions, last year with the Phuket Sandbox. And then more recently with the Thailand Pass. From July 1 there is NO Thailand Pass, NO compulsory insurance and NO face masks in public and open spaces.

With the slow rise of tourist numbers, and expats returning to the island, there is a commensurate kick-on effect with both older businesses being reopening and new doors opening as well.

The President of Phuket OrBorJor says that there are still a lot of Thai people that have not travelled to Phuket, but if Phuket relies on the existing attractions, such as Nai Harn Beach, Phrom Thep Cape, Patong Beach, or even the Old Phuket Town zone without renewing itself, people would visit Phuket only once or twice because they do not see any difference.

To make a difference for Phuket tourism, in order to attract more tourists, the OrBorJor has planned that by the beginning of next year, the skywalk in Rawai, on the southern tip of the island, and the glass terrace at popular Surin Beach will be added to the list of Phuket’s new landmarks.

The sky walk will be built at a football field in Khao Daeng, Rawai, and the glass terrace will be built overlooking the Surin Beach front. The glass terrace is planned to have the most “unique and luxurious design in Thailand”. It will make an outstanding new sea view observation for all visitors.

“The construction plan is being adjusted to serve all visitors a long-lasting memory.”

The football field in Rawai will be totally redeveloped to be a skywalk and the bridge will be made of glass. Free passes will be offered to all visitors as a government-sponsored project.
