  • This was my second visit to the market. Def recommend if in the Khao Lak area. Night time is better for the atmosphere but a lot of the stuff is 'same same'. Don't expect a mega bargain though as most...  more »
  • Changed my opinion after the second visit. Ready to visit this market are included in Khaolak stay. A real local street life is included. Normally in an Asian marked is the kopio branded products, from electrical to handbags and accessories. Better that, taste all the local food on offer. Try banana pancake. Bargain possible, but hard.. Experience life in one of the taverns at the end. High noise level. included.

  • OK. Best in the area. Haggle for a decent discount. Spent about 2-3 hours. Friendly people.
  • Most stores sell the same really bad quality tat. One woman tried to sell me a shirt saying it was linen when the tag on it actually said cotton. When I pointed this out she laughed and actually still had the cheek to start saying it was special cotton! Would have liked to see some actual north Thai like handmade goods.
  • Bit of a small market. Not much in terms of goods but the best all in one in the area. Many of the stall holders can be found back in town on the markets off days with the same goods. You can barter but only so far. Still it's friendly and fun.
  • A variety of cheap food and some shops selling nice cocktails. Also one can find different offers from perfumes to oils and clothes to earphones.
  • Unfortunately some Shops burnt down last week in a fire. But still a good atmosphere... Prices are ok for a market.
