Because we are an island, sometimes we forget just how many great options we have on Phuket, especially when compared to other paradise islands around the world. When it comes to nightlife, beaches, restaurants and shopping, we really do excel in every department, and outside of Pattaya and Bangkok, no other place in Thailand has more, although we definitely top the charts in the beach department.
If you have never been to the Naka Night Market on Wirat Hongyok road, which is just south of Phuket Town, you really are missing out. The TripAdvisor users certainly rate the market highly as it has been ranked as the 6th best market in Thailand by the popular travel website.
Naka Market, also known as the Phuket Weekend Market really is a sight, a vibrant hive of activity with the best prices for items that you will find anywhere in Phuket. The market is open every weekend during the evenings and is the perfect place to absorb that special Thailand market atmosphere.
