Phuket Sunday Walking Street Market is called ‘Lard Yai Market’ by locals and is the most popular attraction in Phuket Town.
This 360-metre long street market was an instant success, adding a much-needed event to the historical part of town.
Every Sunday from 4 pm to 9 pm (and often beyond), the once quiet Thalang Road turns into a busy street.
Night markets are not new to Phuket. The original Naka Market (Talad Tai Rod), located on the outskirt of town near Central Festival, has been a trendy weekend destination for decades. But the Naka weekend market sells mostly copy tee shirts, knockoff brand shoes and cheap jeans.
The Phuket Walking Street is a lot more fun and creative, the street itself is a great photo opportunity, and the choice of things to browse and snacks to try is endless.
