Chao Fa Weekend Night Market in Phuket

Deep-fried crickets, maggots, insects, and more exotic food!

Night markets are always my favorite! They always have the unusual, the weirdest, the best, the most interesting, and beyond traditional goodies. Plus that strange nostalgic feeling I get as if I travel to a different time, a different world.

A popular night market in Phuket is located along Chao Fa West Road just outside Phuket Town, known as Chao Fa weekend market or Talad Tai Rot to locals. From local and exotic food to souvenir items, accessories, antiques, wardrobes , CDs, DVDs - it's like everything is in here!

I enjoyed the food section the most! Food is literally everywhere! It's a gastronomic fiesta! Best place to sample authentic Thai food.

Tourists and locals flock here so expect it to be super crowded especially around dinner time. Best to go early during opening or late night before it closes to avoid the crowd.

The Chao Fa Weekend Market is open Saturdays and Sundays from 4:00PM to 10:00PM.

TIP: The Chao Fa weekend market is the best place to shop for souvenirs because it's way cheaper here compared to shops in Patong. A similar figurine item that costs 300 Baht in Patong, you can haggle in Chao Fa Night Market for about 100 - 150 Baht!
