  • Read reviews prices and realized that the market is not cheap. For comparison shopped in the seaport district: Pineapple 25 baht per kg (2 pineapple go to 36 baht) Mango Bay 30 per kg; Pamela 40 baht per kg, etc.

  • ...empfehlen we visit the Tempelmarkets. This will take place each Tuesday and Friday. You can find souvenirs and Fakeware abound, the most booths must / can be traded. We were there after 1800 and there was each at the entrance a large crowd because of the food stalls are located there. You can snack tasty and cheap, there's but no seating around the stands. The exact opening hours I can not say I guess Tuesdays and Fridays 1700-2200 hrs, as I said. We found the market a nice change of pace and totally okay, but we would not extra move here in the taxi from next.

  • Nice market to visit here is a little of each, for example, clothing (even some replica), cosmetics, accessories, etc. but above all-world food stalls with all kinds of small dishes! Wow what a treat at really good price! We bought blah marinated scampi on skewers, Panko fried chicken, different kinds of spring rolls, and grilled corn on the COB! The whole family loved it and we will dine here again during our stay in Karon! Unsure about opening hours but we were here on a Friday night!

  • 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
  • Great place to buy t shirts polo shirt etc
  • Night market. Typical food, and many things you don't need to buy. But excellent.
