You can’t go to Phuket without going to the market. I just love the variety, people and atmosphere-experience the weird and wonderful. Can be very congested at times, so going with small kids may not be ideal.

The Naka market is not open every night so make sure you check with your local hotel staff if it is operating for the night.

This market is one of the biggest night markets in Phuket. It is extremely overrated and really not worth going there except if you are are a foodie. You will however be able to buy your friends and family a gift and prices are cheaper...More

we paid 800 for the return , including the driver waiting for 3.5 hours. if you are returning its a good idea as taxis etc can be difficult to catch there. i think for the one way 500 would be more likely and a decent price.
