  • This was a great little market open on Tuesday and Friday evenings only a short walk from our hotel in Karon. Street food was really good here and there and loads of bargains to be found if you barter...  more »
  • Not as big a Phuket weekend marked, THANK GOD, You can still buy great food and all the clothes you can wish for, bur without all the noise and people in Phuket. Go here for a nice quiet evening.  more »
  • Good market with lots to buy and eat. Stuffy in places, so keep moving to centre walkway for fresh air. We went twice during our stay and found a variety of gifts to take home. Not too huge to be over...  more »

  • Fun place to browse and go shopping. It isn't open everyday so make sure to check with your hotel. Their is a kabob stand near the entrance which is AMAZING.
  • Not very big, but worth visit. Has some interesting shirts but nothing I haven't seen in other places. There's however some good street seafood I have not seen around my place. But if you need souvenirs, this is a very good place to visit. Remember as in any temple you need to dress appropriately. That means no bikini, no shorts, no miniskirt, revealing tank tops etc. Now I have seen ladies in shorts so my guess is they are flexible towards tourists, but don't do it out of the respect for Thai culture.
  • Quite a nice market, bigger than anticipated. Lots of fun food to try. Too bad only opens twice a week
  • Night market. Typical food, and many things you don't need to buy. But excellent.
  • Like Phuket weekend market but small and not crowded, worth a visit but recommending to visit that one in Phuket as well. You can find small stands that sells random stuff and small food stands.

Where to stay in Karon

Mid-price hotels cling to the shore and around the main Karon Village area, along with more expensive establishments that offer a wider range of facilities.
