I took my 5-year old daughter here during low season (October) from 6 - 7.30pm. The food section is extremely varied with a lot on offer (especially for meat eaters). We had a delicious chocolate and banana dosa, curly fried potato on a stick, coconut...More

Usual type of market found in Thailand. Opens around 4.00pm most days. You can find literally everything at bargain prices but please do spend a bit of time in the food area. Delicious food and genuine alcohol at bargain prices. Worth a visit.

Nice and loud place. Do go there if you are around and would like to get a nice cheap staff from vacation in Thailand.

An average market. Just use it and nothing more. I think Patong Snipes open everyday beside a shopping centre is more exciting than Naka Market. If you are first time in Thailand is a good start. You can find a good food but the rest...More

Nothing special here! Just a market and that's it. Very small and limited variety of products! I don't recommend it!;(
