  • Good place to buy souvenirs and get the tourist Thai market experience. Not super cheap but you can get some good bargains. The bar at the end is a great place to cool down.
  • Traditional and authentic Thailand's market. You can taste every flavour and kind of food, from regular dishes to insects and worms. You can also buy some presents or souvenirs, keep in mind you will have to trade furiously the price, they will try to rip you off (the missing star). Hope you enjoyed it!
  • What a lively place with food, clothing, holiday gifts etc. This was the cheapest place I found selling mojitos although they were a little light on the alcohol but none the less tasty. 😁 Haggling is very important here as the price they tell you first is not the real price. You can find this stuff at these prices elsewhere but the market brings them all together in the same place which is much easier than hunting around for.
  • Cool market with a lot of variation, I would mostly recommend going to the food part. It can be very hot and very damp here so just beware! Food and drinks are cheap and there is a large selection of different things to eat.
  • Well worth a visit if you're in Khaolak. We did avoid the street food but there's restaurants just outside. People where much more friendly compared to in Phuket and prices are of course touristic.
