This open-air Market is exactly like every other Open Air Market in Phuket. Basically you should avoid to the branded stuff and go for the local stuff. The products are all blatantly targeting tourists, from the swimsuits to the multi boxer shorts, cheap sunglasses, the sarongs, the cheap jewelry, and the souvenirs. The local stuff is of some serious interest. You can get carved soap bars, skin treatment products, and different kinds of cosmetics and of course you should definitely check out the food. There are a lot of different varieties of Thai street food here. You'll also find confections, fried insects, grilled meat, fruit shakes, and Northern Thai style sausages among other exotic dishes. Combine this with a trip to the actual temple. It's a nice atmospheric market with lots of local flavor and bustling energy.

  • Bought a few things here! Vendors are less likely to want to bargain than at some of the other markets in Phuket, but stand your ground or walk away - they're not buying their products for any more than anyone else, whatever they tell you. To accept the first price offered is considered very stupid in Thai culture, consider your top price for the item beforehand then offer at most half your final price, and bargain up with deep outward regret and you will be fine! Remember that it's all part of the game 🎲 and Thai people appreciate a good player!

  • A great market to get amazing things such as clothes, electronics, and nic naks.

  • Not too bad. A Thai version of the “pasar malam” in Malaysia.

  • Got a lot of things compared to other makets. You can bargain certain vendors and will get a better price if you buy more than one items.

  • Loved the majority of stuff had set prices. Great vibes, pleasant change from the harassment in Patong for example
