If you have some time on a Saturday or Sunday evening (4 pm – 10pm), this place is well worth to visit. Phuket weekend market.
How to get there.
Phuket weekend market is also the locally called Tarad Yai Road or Naka market, located on Chao Fa West Road opposite Naka temple not far from Phuket old town and Central Festival. Around 30 minutes from Karon Beach or Kamala Beach and 20 minutes from Patong Beach. There is a huge car park behind the market. If you would like to go by taxi, I’m sure everyone known where it is.
