Markets

Phuket, Thailand

Wether searching for the perfect "replica" hand bag and brand name clothes, looking to try some unique cuisine or just trying to absorb of bit of the Thai culture, Phuket's markets or "talaads" (as they are locally known) have it all. Opening in the evening when the heat of the sun has dissipated most offer an array of street performances, neon lights and popular music giving them a sort of carnival feel.

There are two types of markets in Phuket; the first being the fresh/wet market which is open 7 days a week and always in the same location at the same time. These "talaads" offer a great selection of fresh and dried foods, prepared snacks, cheap clothing and handicrafts.

The second type of market is a weekend market or as locals call it "talaad nat". These are similar to what most western countries call Farmers markets. They operate only the weekends and offer a section of newly picked of fruits and vegetable. As they are only open two days a week this often means the produce is fresher than most grocery stores.

Probably the most famous of them all is the Naka Market also known as the weekend night market. This market is by far the largest and most intriguing, selling everything from replica goods, used shoes and clothing, jewelry, perfume, tourist souvenirs, prepared food and even live animals! The market takes up a full city block and is split into sections to make shopping easier. It is a popular shopping destination for tourists and offers a small section of caravan style bars and children's play area along the parking lot exterior where you can drop the family off while you shop.
