How to visit the night market in Phuket
Be sure to take a trip to the Phuket Town night market. Firstly, you will plunge into a local color and see an incredible abundance of Asian goods, and, secondly, try out the exotic delicacies, which also hit the visitor with its diversity.

The Night Market (also called Sunday Market — a Weekend Market) is divided into two parts — commodity and gastronomic.

The first one offers clothes, shoes, accessories, unusual gifts and local cosmetic products, which, by the way, are appreciated even far outside of Thailand.

The second part will go down to the culinary experiments lovers — here you will find everything from the local fruit, vegetables and seafood, and ending up with Gérin cockroaches, Thai sweets and exotic cocktails.

All the culinary delights can be packed and taken out or you can be free to eat it at the open common table next to the grocery.
