If on an adventure in Thailand a worth while trip is to a local market. 

Usual opens in the evening. Will vary in size.  I like the larger ones even though can be very crowded.   The sites aromas and sounds all a great sensory experience.   

Do you have any experience you would like to share on your adventure of life.  

Phuket Floating Market in Kathu Thailand is not actual a floating market like in Bangkok. 

It open this summer and is a unique shopping center fashioned after Asian floating markets. Plenty of shops and food stalls . Has entertainment. The afternoon I was there, the market was slow with few buyers or tourist. But lot of shops. 

Restaurants food stalls

I was disappointed with selection or choices. I did not see that many and I walked the whole market. There is a large food court at the back. Some are located next to the water.


At the entrance is a stage for live shows. 

Plenty of parking and set up for tour buses. 

I understand in the future will have a night market 10pm till midnight with comic statues

Location hours contact info

10am to 10pm

I have taken the bus between Phuket and Bangkok several times over the years.  It is cheap and not that bad.


The bus station in Phuket is only couple years old, clean and plenty of places to grab something to eat.  Located north of town going toward the airport. There are two types of buses VIP and regular. The price is not that much different but the extra leg room, suggest the VIP!  For more information on the bus companies check our page on Bus Travel in Thailand  You can buy tickets at the bus station on the day of travel but if wanting to travel  VIP  suggest buying a day in advance.  There is a taxi stand at the terminal and also a long term parking garage.  For a motorbike 30 bht a day.

If your looking for a place to rent, buy or long term rental, this is a great place to check out. I have known Wellta the owner for many years, done business with her and always professional and honest.  Her site has great photos and descriptions to help you.  When I first used her site, was looking for long term rental and was working in the middle east. I was just coming to Thailand for my holidays so did not have the time when here in Phuket to look around.  Looking thru her web site, found a place, made all the arrangements and when I got here and saw the place, WAS EXACTLY as her site photos showed.


above is an example of few houses in a price range that you can select and area  buy or rent
