This is an awesome Market, the Thai people are so friendly & happy, they are polite & don't hassle you to purchase from them. Great products of Thailand can be found.

Grab some food, go to the temple, eat quietly and walk in the small shops,,, nice 60 min to spend. Tip: you can eat quite a lot in 120 THB. Yet you need a place to sit... so go into the temple gardens!

Worth a visit if you are in the area especially on a Tuesday which is better than the Friday one. Food stalls and many a bargain to be had if you willing to barter

The inviting food stalls at the entrance definitely bring you into the gates of the temple, the stalls are all very similar and the variety was average. A good place to stroll and barter for a bit of evening entertainment .

The usual tourist stuff but a great place for cheap elephant pants, t-shirts, headphones etc. Worth a visit.

I was surprised how small this market was but still worth a look if you are staying in Karon but wouldn't bother travelling far. The temples looked lovely lit up at night.

Yes, we were staying in Kata beach and we grabbed a tuk tuk right outside the market and from memory there were taxis too.
