The Naka Weekend Market, Phuket Town


Hi, this is Astrid, “the culinary adventurer” my friends called me, because I am blessed with a big appetite to eat all kind of foods in this amazing Phuket, Thailand. You should check my previous post about the budget restaurants in Phuket Town as well. You also can find me and my friends’ adventure stories in our trainee’s blog http://thr-internship.blogspot.com/

Here, I would like to share the hidden treasure of Phuket town, which only can be enjoyed in every Saturday and Sunday. So, make sure you come and have your stay in Phuket Town :)

Weekends in Phuket are one of my favorite times to hang out, and plus it has a very special night market which just only open in every weekend in Phuket Town. It is located in Chao Fa West road, just opposite the Wat Naka (Naka Temple), it starts from 4pm to 10pm, so it is recommended to take your dinner in here.

If you start from Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, you will need a tuk-tuk that will cost you around 400 THB. If you like to do shopping in open-air, or show your hunting and bargaining skill, this is the perfect place to come.

But, I prefer to call it “The Heaven of Food” because here you can find a lot of kind of foods, from sweet to spicy, from hot to cold, from fruits to juices, from normal to outstanding dishes. So, make sure that you did empty your stomach before go here, because you can just grab various kind of amazing traditional to international snacks in this night market.
