“Great fun - a must do activity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

As with other markets there are the normal T shirts and flip flops BUT as you walk through the market you will find watches, electronics (limited), shoes, lingerie, caps, pearls and FOOD.

The food is amazingly cheap and includes prawns, chicken, fish, duck, amazing mini donuts and then for the more adventurous there are fried crickets and other creepy crawlies. One can purchase dinner for under 2 US Dollars.

“Going back tomorrow for more food!”

Have been in a Karon for nearly two weeks and we visited the market on our second day. Plenty of stalls with same same but to tell you the truth the highlight was the street food stalls and so cheap.

“Good to pass the time looking for bargains.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

We all like a bargain and your sure to find one. We bought t-shirts and nice souvenirs for family members. It's open Tuesday and Saturday from early afternoon to late night. Best to go after dinner for evening stroll.
