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.

This is a really nice market whether you want to shop for souvenirs, handcraft, or just see the sights or eat (and there is enough food to satisfy anyone here). Prices are reasonable for Phuket and good bargaining at most stalls. A tip memorise the...More
