Even if you don’t intend to shop, a visit to Phuket Town Weekend Night Market feels like a must-see for tourists vacationing on the island. The market is located on Wirat Hong Yok Road and is pretty close to Central Festival shopping mall.
The list of goods there is endless and if you are looking for clothes or souvenirs, you will most definitely find something. In fact, you can spend hours there yet not see everything of the market as it is literally huge, with no less than 1,000 stalls. There are also numerous food stalls that display a wide range of Thai food specialties.
All in all, this market is a great place to go to, and prices are cheap even if you must not forget to bargain when prices are not displayed. Vendors are used to it and always have enough margin to offer discounts.
Phuket Town Weekend Night Market opens every Saturdays and Sundays from 16.00 to 22.00 hrs. Some stalls may open before but due to the weather we recommend you to visit the market in the late afternoon/evening when the sun is gone. That is also when the atmosphere is the most electrifying.
