Phuket weekend market (locally known as Naka Market), located along Chao Fa West Road just outside Phuket Town not far from Central Festival, is a fascinating jumble of secondhand goods, curios, pirated items, live animals and a large amount of great local food to sample. It really is worth a visit even if you're not planning on buying anything. If you were to ask, "What's for sale here?" The answer would probably be, "How much time do you have?" as the list of goods is endless.

Naka Market is a very big local market, where you can basically find everything you want or anything you are looking for in here (in very cheap prices!). If you're feeling hungry while shopping, you can just go to the back side of the market and grab some snacks and drinks! There is a leather shop, where you can buy... More

Fun to barter for prices, good for souvenirs and the food is awesome. Can be reached by scooter from the gyms if you're a confident rider, or is a cheap taxi if not.

I like going to check out the food, cheap too. Also here you always find something a little different even in the other areas. Eg, clothes, accessories and some entertainment. There is outdoor and under cover stalls, mostly undercover, does get very hot in the hot season, so best going as soon as it opens before it's too busy or... More

Largest market with all, my eyes have ever seen. The food is very good and very cheap. Souvenirs, electronics, medical,clothes and accessories to super prices besides that everything is negotiable. Must go, must see, must buy something.

This market is the biggest weekend market on Phuket. You can find all here. From souvenirs to local products, Good, drinks.... name it. And this cheaper than anywhere else on Phuket. The word is bargain... so don't except the price, surely not when you buy more than one. Open Saturday and Sunday as of 5pm. Located west of Phuket town.... More

This is the best market on the island, no matter what your poison is; the second hand clothes are cheap and good (American, German, French and Swedish brands). The food is great, and there is a lot of it. If you're into 'eye candy' this is the best place for spotting (and flirting with) girls from all over the island,... More

If you are buying stuff there, you need to bargain with the store person till the price fit you. Never speak to them nicely and smile sure you can get your price, otherwise just say TQ n talk away, you may surprise they call you back for your price. (of course do not over demand the price, this is rude.)... More
