Some of the things you’ll find here include beautiful clothing and textiles, bags, luggage, Thai silk, silver and other kinds of jewellery, various types of art, and much more. If something catches your eye, make sure to negotiate before purchasing because bargaining is expected by the vendors so that you always get value for your money. You can even get a better price if you buy more than one item from the same vendor.
But even if you aren’t planning on purchasing anything, the market is worth visiting no matter how old you are. Visitors are entertained by the dance recitals, local music, and even beauty pageants that are occasionally held here.
Come to the market with an appetite and feast on spicy local sausages, sushi, grilled meats, fishcakes, deep-fried insects, and other exotic food. Several restaurants and bars line the street for those looking for a more relaxed dining experience.
To get to Walking Street Koh Phangan, head over to the main pier of the island and it’s a quick 5-minute walk from here. Alternatively, for those coming from Baan Tai, the market is accessible from one end of Taladkao road which is near the traffic light at the intersection. It’s open every Saturday until 10pm.
