On 24th June 2011 from 9am – 3pm at Sawang Arom Temple Rawai Beach residents are to hold an event called “Rawai folk wisdom 4” to educate their children about lifestyle and cultural diversity.
Mayor of Rawai Municipality said the event’s objective was to gather and bring Rawai folk wisdom, which has almost completely vanished from Rawai residence life, back to a new generation. The event will promote the original way of life, the wisdom of Buddhism, the way of Muslims, and the way of the Gypsies. There will be plenty of activities such as stir the caramel demonstrations, demonstrations of local arts and crafts and also promoting Rawai cooking wisdom with items such as Phuket Khao Yam and Phuket style Nam Prik. There will also be retro style performances.
Furthermore, the event will also help promote tourism in Phuket. Many visitors are expected to attend and learn about the traditional Thai way of life. Participants will dress in traditional style and there will be a contest for the best costumes.
