It was Sunday and I read about this great Sunday market in Phuket town. It only takes place on Sundays and we were lucky to experience it. We took a taxi from our hotel and went there during the afternoon after a few hours by the pool. The market is called Lard Yai market and is located in Phuket Old town on Thalang Road, in the middle of the renovated Portuguese district. Locals and tourists alike visit this market to eat, to try, to drink, and to shop. The street is lined with shops, restaurants, and coffee places. And the food stalls are all set up in the middle of the street and it is perfect to walk by, watch how the dishes are being prepared, and try whatever takes your fancy. We ate a few things on offer and shopped, and really enjoyed the local scene. A great way to spend the afternoon and experience a typical Thai market. It opens at 4 PM every Sunday and closes at 10 PM. Loved it!
