Great area to wander & people watch for sure. Ability to purchase all sorts of seafood, some on ice and some still alive in tanks. A wide variety of restaurants can cook your 'catch' and also a few little shack restaurants offering dishes at very cheap prices.
A must see in Rawai

I'm aussie and love seafood went to the one at the very end on right hand side on the beach had high hopes. Didnt go buy my own fresh seafood as local friend said you get short changed or totally swapped food. So ordered of menu paid the same or more than i would in australia and very disapointing meal i only ate a bit of it was just awful i couldn't wouldn't finish it.. You would think Thailand land of beautiful spices and taste surrounded by fresh quality seafood they would be amazingly skilled at preparing and cooking it. And to boot the beach stank and was full of rubbish i had to laugh when the waitress cleared the tables just threw the table rubbish over the side onto the beach wtf? Possibly maybe just that restaraunt but i wont be going back there anytime soon to try other ones i'll stick to the cheap restaraunts that you see packed with locals.

We bought about 2 kilos of different fish and seafood and went to one of the restaurants was our most expensive meal in Rawai over 2000 bath. Full of pushy Chinese tourist and way overpriced. Would not return just go to a restaurant near the beach and pay half for the same thing.
