  • Karon temple market was great, everything there from clothes, food and trinkets to take home. Don't forget to haggle it's the best fun ever  more »
  • A good experience but most of the stalls stock the same stuff (clothes etc.) and there wasn't as many food options as I was expecting. Maybe it was just the night we went but I felt it was an average ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Somewhat cheap priced market, as long as you negociate well. You can easily cut down a price by hald and more. Great place to eat food. Very good and fast. Only downside is that there is no place to sit down. Not too crowded. Perfect.
