Thailand Holiday #5
Feb 2020 • Couples
The markets open Tuesday’s and Friday’s. As the Thai saying goes, the markets have much of the same same but different. Local cuisine cooked before your eyes. Absolutely amazing. Just remember, you get what you pay for!!! The locals don’t mind a bit of bartering, but don’t be disrespectful!!! Some of the tourists that I’ve seen engaging in bartering have been rude and arrogant. The Thai locals deserve far greater respect than that!! The Temple itself is just breathtaking. It’s architecture in all its glory is just astonishing. Enjoy the market but more importantly, appreciate the Thai culture.

Nothing special
Feb 2020
Friday evening 14h February and we visited this market for the second time. It is situated in the grounds of the Karon Temple. On this occasion we were here to visit the Temple.

The Market and Temple are situated along Patak Road, which is full of bars, restaurants and shops. A lively place to walk along on the way to the Market or have dinner after being to the Market.

There were a large number of stalls/kiosks selling the usual tourist stuff and it appeared to be more expensive that other places.

There were also some funfair stalls, nothing too exciting, dotted about the Market

A number of stalls/kiosks were preparing and cooking street food

Worth a browse, but nothing special.

A night market
Mar 2020
This is a night market that is supposed to be only open twice a week. While we were in Karon it was open most nights. All the usual stuff on sale with nothing special except if you want to try fried insets.

Family trip
Feb 2020 • Family
I visited the market while on a trip with five other family members. From an eleven year old to 50+. It was quite a way out of town from Kata where we were staying but worth the visit. There are some lovely temple buildings with lots of locals and local activities. There was a stage with dancing groups including a local school performing with lovely Thai music.
The market stalls themselves were selling the same things you find everywhere else, fake goods, beach wear, souvenirs etc but there are lots of stalls to choose from. There are quite a lot of food and drink options all selling nice Thai food lots of which is made while you watch. Lovely fresh fruit smoothies too at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
Unlike some Thai night markets there is no alcohol allowed at the temple market.
There are plenty of other shops and restaurants in the area too.

Too Touristy
Feb 2020 • Friends
This is nothing special. Usual market junk where most stalls sell the same stuff. I was hoping for good food options but there wasn’t much. They had just tourist stuff (like sushi?) versus authentic Thai food

Bonus Market Night
Feb 2020 • Family
Thought the market was Tues/Fri but stumbled across it tonight (Sun). Apparently on for next 10 nights...

Great atmosphere, live music and lots of food stalls. Some stalls similar through the market but plenty of variety - even some fair ground stalls.

Lots of bargains to be had and worth a haggle.

Food fresh and clean and really cheap. Pad Thai for 80 Baht was amazing and little pork sticks for 10!

No bugs eaten this time...

Great fun all round.

Worth a visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
Typical local market on Tuesdays and Fridays. All the usual produce with friendly people. Thankfully night Market so cooler to walk around. Bought a few presents here barter for fun.

A few novel food stalls with grubs scorpions, worms etc but charge 10 baht if you take a picture!!!
Worth a visit.

Great atmosphere
Feb 2020
This was a fun market to visit. Lots of food stalls with delicious and interesting dishes. Good variety of stalls with friendly stall owners who don't hassle you to buy their merchandise. I prefer this market to shopping in Patong. Was a great atmosphere at night and interesting that the market was around the temple.

Exactly what we were looking for
Jan 2020
The marked had everything and was cheap (if you know how to bargain the price down). What we liked the most, was how well everything looked. It didn't smell bad, like many other markets. So very nice and tidy.
