On a Tuesday night go to the Karon Temple Markets nice Thai food and great little market.

The weekend markets are good in Phuket Town. Or the Otop markets are ok in Patong.

As mentioned there are the markets but there are a couple of malls that are also pretty good. Jungceylon and Central Festival.

Old Phuket Town is also worth a visit.

If you are in Patong, No 6 is great up Bangla road (away from beach) , and turn left, or Sea Hagg off the beach strip up a side lane, between holiday in and Bangla road. Look at TA for the locations, and reviews.

Shopping Jungceylon is good, and the prices are reasonable, also out the back of that centre are good stalls, and you get as hassled. In the stall in Jungceylon you can bargain.

If you are there the food and produce market is worth a wander

In Karon, we liked the restaurant Ging. Its just off the Beach Rd, up a road near the Old Phuket Hotel. There's quite a few restaurants and shops in that street. The main road also has lots of restaurants and a few market stalls. The night market in Phuket Town is great. Just get a taxi round trip from Karon. Should costs about 1000baht for the return journey. Great food at the stalls in the market. Have a fabulous time!!!

Definitely consider a visit to the weekend market in Phuket Town. I also highly recommend Ging restaurant near the Old Phuket Hotel. Across the road from Gings is Karlssons which is great for steaks and western food. For sundowners The Ruam Thep Inn located directly on the southern end of Karon beach is a great spot. Excellent Pad Thai there. I also recommend their Pad Si Eeu and Neua Daed Diaaw.

The Kata Villa across the road also offers good value for money food and their burgers are great.....they are enormous! The Two Chefs located further along the beach road closer towards Kata Center is great for western food.

Have fun!
