The basics

The market is divided into covered and uncovered sections, with most clothing inside and street food outside. As the single biggest night market on the island, Phuket Weekend Market can be overwhelming for first-time visitors. Overcome the language barrier and discover snacks and souvenirs that you may otherwise overlook on an evening tour of Phuket; tours typically also cover other island highlights such as the Big Buddha and the Promthep Cape, a prime sunset stop.
