Small but good

This was a small night market close to our hotel where we stayed for a night before flying north. The market was cool... I really wish I had had a guide to explain the food to me... read more

This was a small night market close to our hotel where we stayed for a night before flying north. The market was cool... I really wish I had had a guide to explain the food to me. We had some super super tasty fried chicken and a slushy that was crazy sweet but nice and cold.

First place to stop for weary travellers is the wonderful night market with some great food. Most of the stalls offer a wide selection of really local dishes that are unique to this part of Thailand. Be prepared for some high levels of spiciness! All fresh, and all all delicious.

There is a huge variety of Thai Street food on offer. I accept that our palates are different, but we did not find the local food on offer as tasty as elsewhere in Thailand. This should however not deter you from enjoying the open air restaurant at the riverside.

Food you wont see anywhere else in the world - fermented fish sausages - looked pretty popular with the locals but not with me. Plenty of "labels" to buy for a fiver plenty of souvenirs no high pressure sell but barter hard it is surprising how much discount you can get!

Nothing special about this night market. I thought with a city the size of Surat Thani, it would be a bit larger than what it is. Still cheap/good food. Easy to get to. Close to a mall with nice air con and shops.

This was really an interesting experience. there are almost no tourist at this city (most of them are just staying a night before catching a flight/ferry). mainly locals, very unique delicious cheap food.

Many delicious food here. You can find the street food along the road. Very convenient to buy anything. It's very cheap and feel like a local.
