I'd recommend going to the sea gypsy village in Rawai. It is very cheap, and the freshest fish on the island brought in constantly by the gypsies. Pick your fish, prawns, various shellfish on one side of the street, and the restaurant on the other side will gather it up for you and cook it to your liking. It's easy to find, just go to the fisherman's pier in Rawai. In Patong proper, I heard you can get crabs on Bangla Road ")

Thanks for the recommendation. I will do some research on Rawai and its restaurant. Anyway is there any recommendation for place to hangout which i meet some other traveler and hangout?

Honestly, the biggest piece of advice I can tell you about Phuket is stay away from Patong. It's sleazy, dirty, busy, and the #1 reason people don't like Phuket. If you are there, it is very busy with pubs and go-gos and restaurants. More foreigners than Thais, so you're guaranteed to meet other travelers. Patong is most definitely not the quiet hang out beach though, too busy with hookers, scammers, and the suckers that fall for them. I'd recommend Kata or Karon beach, perhaps Naiharn but that's far more quiet than the other two.

yes that is what i found on the web as well, Patong is pretty busy with their night life. Alright i will check out Kata, Karon and Naiharn in this case. Thanks once again.
