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

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

There is nothing special about this market , just lots of fake brand clothes , and some souvenirs. The stands very overpriced, but when you tried to walk away , they gave you a smaller price . Good food . It’s worth a look, but...More

Hey, we were there last month. The Phuket, Patong, Karon markets all sell the same type of stuff. The locals are happy to negotiate price, within reason. The Karon markets weren't as busy as the others, and are family... More
