Overview

Phuket weekend market (locally known as Naka Market), located along Chao Fa West Road just outside Phuket Town not far from Central Festival, is a fascinating jumble of secondhand goods, curios, pirated items, live animals and a large amount of great local food to sample. It really is worth a visit even if you're not planning on buying anything. If you were to ask, "What's for sale here?" The answer would probably be, "How much time do you have?" as the list of goods is endless.

A must visit in Phuket for all shopping and food. Every brand of everything available at great prices and then you can barter away. The food area is a great experience and nothing to be worried about. Have eaten there many times over the years...More

In the food area they have so many selections of different local cuisine. If you want to try something out of your comfort zone that is fresh then go here. Well worth the trip
