A bustling weekend market in the heart of Phuket Town, this is where you’ll find some of the best bargains around, for both shopping and dinner options. It’s a sprawling place and requires a lot of time to explore.
What’s So Awesome About It
Filled with loads of things you don’t need and some things you do, Phuket Town’s weekend market, or Naka Market, is a treasure trove. It’s massive, and you could spend hours wandering between stalls selling everything from bargain clothes to fake watches to perfumes and cheap DVDs. There’s also a huge selection of street food to try and almost as many objects to buy.
Things To Buy
- Local snack foods like durian and grilled meat on a stick
- Bargain t-shirts
- Wicker bags
- Second-hand shoes
- Fake watches
What’s The Catch
A popular spot during weekend evenings, it can be difficult to find space to park at this time. At Naka Market, the prices are low and the quality of goods can often reflects this.
How To Get There
From Central Festival Phuket, it’s towards Rawai Beach. Turn left at the second traffic lights and you’ll find it on Thangla Road.
The covered section is full of second-hand goods, and the outdoor stalls cover new products.
