Spent two evenings at Naka Market. Great place for souvenirs, but really go for the food. Enjoyed Phuket Weekend Market moreso than Bangla market. More local. It’s cash only, open on Sat and Sundays and the Friendly Thai’s always made a discount for me 😉.

Opens only on Saturdays and Sunday. Rows and rows of food, clothes, electronics, sundries and pets. A maze to walk in. Crowded but safe and enjoyable. Great place for bargain hunters. A really good mix of goods and food. Children friendly. Has something for everyone.

Typical Thai market same stuff in dozens of stalls. They advertise the advantages if being undercover if it rains but the heat under the tin is almost unbearable. The best part about this market was the fruit stalls selling fresh local fruit at excellent prices....More

Well worth a visit even if the goods tend to repeat with so many stands. Best go once the sun has set since it can be very warm under the roof. One of the best stands I found had their own(?) T-Shirt designs with the...More

Usual type of market found in Thailand. Opens around 4.00pm most days. You can find literally everything at bargain prices but please do spend a bit of time in the food area. Delicious food and genuine alcohol at bargain prices. Worth a visit.
