Great tipical Thai night market, you can buy everything and eat whatever you want. You find it in a temple garden.

Karon Temple market is open on Fridays and Tuesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. It's small and not very crowded except at the entrance. It's a good place for buying simple t-shirts, shawls, souvenirs, etc. There were neither fresh food nor spices which was disappointing....More

We went on Tuesday (usually there is one on Friday as well). Loved the shopping, as all markets in Phuket - great variety starting from little souvenirs, beauty, cloth, electronics, fake brands etc. But when we reached the food section there were only fruits, a...More

We caught a tuktuk from patong to karon for 400 baht & he dropped us off at the main gate. They have all the usual things that markets have but we found it a bit cheaper than patong. Make sure you taste the spring rolls...More

This market is on Tuesday and Friday nights. If it's on while you're in Karon, Kata or Patong grab a Tuk Tuk and check it out. For me it's all about the food.

We entered the market from the main Karon strip (as we called it) and were immediately greeted with some lovely smells of the food stalls. Unfortunately we attended on one evening where it was dreadful rain, thunder and lighting but we still managed to walk...More
