  • Karon Bazaar (Shopping Sale Karon Plaza) - Phuket

    Market-like Shopping Centre right on Karon Beachfront

    0

    Karon Bazaar (Shopping Sale Karon Plaza) is a large, covered market-like shopping centre set in the central area of Karon Beach Road on Phuket Island’s west coast, right between Woraburi Phuket Resort and Moenvenpick Resort, some 350m south from Karon circle. Covering a 6,000sqm area, the bazaar features just about everything you'll ever need (or not).

    Concrete-floored, neon-lit and corrugated-iron-roofed Karon Bazaar is a beachside but smaller version of the famous Phuket Weekend Market in Phuket Town with slightly higher prices, at least before bargaining. Only a few shops are air conditioned. Aimed at tourists and open every day from 10:00 till late, the place is a great opportunity for an evening stroll even if shopping is not your thing (husbands can wait sipping a cold one in one of the bars installed right in front of the place).

  • At Karon Bazaar the most represented items are related to clothes and fashion. Any type of customer can find a T-shirt here according their taste and character; humourous? All the ‘No Money-No Honey’ or ‘I’m with Stupid’ kind of T-shirts are here; trendy? Roxy, Guess, and all the famous international brands are available (without authenticity certificate though); Rocker? Kiss, AC/DC and other heavy rock band shirts are also here.

    You can literally get dressed up from your head to your toes at Karon Bazaar as it also has a good selection of underwear, panties, swimming and beach wear, shoes - from cute sandals to branded sport shoes (again without authenticity certificate), hats – from Bogey’s panama hat to Chicago Bulls’ caps. Plus, some stalls are dedicated to children clothes.

    Fashion accessories such as jewellery - bracelets, necklaces, ear-rings, watches, sun-glasses as well as purses and handbags (they sell very original studded hand-bags), Zippo lighters, and silver cutlery can be found here. A few stalls sell Thai ‘mechanically hand-crafted’ souvenirs, from Buddha statues to elephant-shaped photo-frames to conical Asian hats, and a lot more.

    A small massage parlour performing reflexology can help to revitalize your feet for 300 baht; the parlour also has a wide selection of massages - from Thai massage (300 baht) to Thai hot herb massage (1,000 baht) – and also has a manicure and pedicure service. Bird Tattoo studio has all the means (machine or bamboo) to ink your body, and Jay Mobile Shop can help you with the settings of your mobile phone or tablet.

    Right in front of the bazaar stand a few bars and snack stalls at which you can refresh yourself with cold beer, soft drinks, fresh coconut milk, and fruit; the chicest joint here is a modified bright-orange Kombi Volkswagen featuring a few tables and chairs made from durable ersatz water hyacinth (other places only have plastic table and chairs).
