by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

One of the finest beach destinations of Thailand, Phuket is home to exotic white-sand beaches, lively towns, and majestic Buddhist temples. Whether you're a budget traveller or a leisure tourist looking for the best in luxurious resorts, this Thai destination would have something or the other for making your holiday memorable. Besides exploring the popular attractions of the main island, you can embark on a trip to some of the gorgeous islands located nearby. You can also visit the vibrant night markets of Phuket after sunset to shop for your desired items and have loads of fun watching some exciting street performances.

Among the night markets you can explore during your Phuket holidays is the Chillva Market, which opens every day when the sun is about to set. You can enjoy a pleasant atmosphere during your visit with some excellent musical performances happening at the heart of the market. It also gives you some impressive choices in fashion, food, and other items. This market is located by the side of Yaowarat Road, which is on the way that leads to Phuket Town. The market also gives its visitors wider choices on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays when small hawkers set up their tents or stalls to sell their wares. 

The Weekend Market, also called Naka Market, is yet another fascinating night market you can visit during your time spent in this Thai destination. It is located along Chao Fa West Road and offers a variety of delectable local treats at its food stalls in addition to the second-hand goods and pirated items. You'll come across two sections while getting around in this market. One is the open market and the other is the covered section. The market provides fabulous selections of T-shirts, denim, and some good carvings and images that you can take home as souvenirs.

When you're in the Old Town of Phuket, don't forget to explore the Walking Street. It is a weekly market, which was started in 2013 and is located on Thalang Road amidst the Sino-Portuguese district. You'll get to taste some culinary specialities of southern Thailand and discover the local handicrafts upon exploring this exciting night market. Food and souvenirs are the two main items sold in this part of Phuket's Old Town. If you're travelling with your entire family to Phuket, you'll get to witness a weekly event featuring several attractions for children at this place, such as toy stalls and a trampoline.

Don't miss the twice-weekly Indy Market located on Dibuk Road, which is also known as 'laadploykong' in the Thai language. The word translates as 'a market to let go of your goods'. It is also a place visited mostly by the local young adults and teenagers to have loads of fun, as the market is a thrilling mix of vendors and talented performers. You'll be able to browse through this market in less than 20 minutes as it is quite small and relatively unknown. However, it is a great place to uplift your mood and you can also get a special souvenir created just for you or your special ones back home at the artist booths.
