Shopping in January

Hi, I've been told by someone that shopping in Phuket in January is more expensive than other months and your less likely to get good deals on t-shirts, boardies, sunnies etc. Is this true?

I think high season in general is a little more pricey . Not just January. Low season people are willing to bargain. But it is a great time of year to go. Calm blue seas, nice temperatures. little rain.

When we visit in the month of January i usually shop for clothing in Phuket Town, Premium Outlet (70o/o sale in all shops in January), I also buy from the beach sellers. Phuket Town weekend markets sell what you have mentioned without any hard sell.

Your prices in January are the same it's just comes down to whether you want to be hassled in some of the markets to buy buy buy repetitive clothing.

Up to you. CJ
