  • This market within the walls of the temple of Karon is really good, very varied. There are almost all, and side culinary discovery you take full eyes and taste buds. I recommend this discovery.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Good variety of clothes and fodd/drink ok price and usually crowded...had a few little snacks overhere and all pretty tasty! Recommended!!!
  • 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.
  • Interesting to visit once. Malin plaza and Phuket night market are more interesting.
