Phuket Weekend Nightmarket

Date of Visit: 7th January 2012

We never know about this night market in Phuket until we were being told by our driver and also the guesthouse's coordinator. Guess we were lucky cause this night market only happen on every weekend. You will know how much I love to visit this especially when comes to night market.

This weekend market is runs on every Saturday and Sunday and is start from 4:00pm until 10:00pm. We hired the taxi driver through our guesthouse and he charged approximately 800 baht for both return trip to and from nightmarket. The taxi driver gave us 2 and half hour to wander around the night market.

There are literally hundreds of stalls and each selling their own unique style of wares; from foods to clothings, accessories, souvenirs and more.

#3: The first few stalls we came across were mostly on foods. How can you resist on these huge grilled squids?

Sometimes the reason behind I love to visit the night market was because I could find something unique and yet cheaper than what being offered in the shopping malls - especially on clothings and fashion accessories.

#4: Clothing sections

Majority of stalls here are selling more towards on women's goods - clothings, shoes, handbags, accessories, jewellery. But for the guys, fear not, cause there are still plenty of men's clothing shops available here. I managed to find and bought a cool and beautiful design T-shirt that cost for 200 baht only.

#11: Another foods temptation. Sinful but they are absolutely tasty

Although this market is not as huge and large as Bangkok's famous Chatuchak Weekend Market, but for me, it is still can consider pretty large because eventhough we were given 2 and half hours, we still unable to cover at least all. Generally speaking, the floor is mostly cemented over so you won’t get muddy underfoot like at other local markets.

Except for the pink dress and my Boyfie's white T-shirt on the right side cost 200 baht each, the rest cost 100 baht each and for the hair clip cost roughly around 20-50 baht.
