Wenn man in der Nähe ist kann man vorbei schauen, aber eine weite Anreise lohnt sich nicht. Es gibt die üblichen Souvenirs und auf der rechten Seite einen kleinen Lebensmittelmarkt. more »If one is nearby you pass may look, but not worth a long trip. There are the usual souvenirs and on the right side a small food market.

At the rearmost point of the market on the left side, definitely try smoothies - from top to bottom through the map!

Many bags, T-Shirts, etc. are offered. You can try but also local dishes and buy spices. Action here is a must. The dealer hit ordinary tourists. We have received various products for less than the initially called the price and paid probably still too much. The market is worth to the stroll in any case. The quality of individual stuff is also really good. The salespeople are friendly. Looking for those of the souvenirs, the market is fully recommend.

Food and drinks are a lot of fun: cheap, delicious and served by friendly Thais. The souvenir market is a total rip-off, the traders are mostly migrant workers who want to make a quick buck and can become impolite if they don't like your offer. Another market about 1km further north along the road is for local Thais and better suited for shoppers (only Tue, Thu, Sun).

Nice market to go to for local food. There are lots of standard cafes and local stalls that are put up for the weekend market. Do try the Thai noodle soup here. You can also but green groceries like fresh fruits and vegetables along with fish and poultry from here. For shoppers there are many stalls selling home decor stuff, I picked up hangings made from coconut shells, pretty unique stuff.

Fun markets to walk around. Prices are very reasonable and in most cases you can bargain. The food is great, definitely try the banana roti. The currency exchange at the entrance appears to have very reasonable rates. Most shop keepers are really easy to talk to and don't hassle you much.

Fantastic place to visit and to get a little slice of Thai life. Must see for anyone visiting the area for the first time. Also would recommend a visit to the Tsunami Museum which is situated just across the road from the market. There is an entry fee but all profits go to charity.

Good markets, a bit cheaper than local stores on the main street. Don't forget to barter - start at least 50% to 60% below their price and you will get a good deal. Great bar at the end of the markets - can be very hot to walk around during the day, suggest you go at night. Have fun😊

Where to stay in Takua Pa
Takua Pa offers a few good options for overnight stays, though visitors tend not to do this unless absolutely necessary. You can rent air-conditioned, clean, no-frills rooms in the heart of town in midrange and economy lodgings. Do bring a phrasebook, as staff in a lot of places will speak minimal English. Head to the more heavily touristed environs of nearby Khao Lak for a wider range of choices to suit different needs.
