Delicious street food, the typical knockoff designer stuff, and plenty of souvenirs! It’s very fun and i felt that the vendors weren’t overly in your face here as they have been in other markets I’ve been. Definitely check out the food stands!

Karon Temple market is a good place to have a feel of Thai culture. It has great number of eating joints offering food from all over the world. The Thai massage parlors are in abundance.

An interesting place to visit and perfect for clothes shopping. Huge choice of stalls, and fun to haggle over prices. There’s a stall that sells fried ice cream too!

This market that only opens twice a week was one of the reasons I selected Karon as my place to stay. I was so disappointed. There are barely any unique items, lots of the stalls carrying the same stock. It’s just factory tourist tat and...More
