Boat Avenue Night Market

Market in Ao Bang Thao & Cherngtalay

On Friday evenings, the alfresco Boat Avenue mall morphs into a lively, colourful night market packed with stalls offering noodle stir-fries, fresh barbecued fish and sôm·đam (spicy green papaya salad). There's also everything from floaty beach dresses and printed purses to scented coconut candles for sale. It's a chance to savour Phuket's market life and cuisine without having to travel south to Phuket Town.
