Tinlay Market Phuket

Night Market in Bangtao

Tinlay Market Phuket is a fun evening shopping experience near to Bangtao Beach, just behind the large Tesco Lotus supermarket and by the side of the road leading to Catch Beach Club. Originally a small local market, it was redeveloped with funky permanent structures and a slightly more tourist-friendly set-up. In spite of this, it hasn’t lost its local atmosphere and, more importantly, the local prices.

Impossible to miss thanks to the giant illuminated sign which looks like something out of Las Vegas, The market itself is hidden behind a row of large established shops. Once through the light-strewn entrance, you will find a barn-like stage ahead of you, with small live acts by local performers. To your left, you will see a more traditional market set-up, similar to the style of the Phuket Weekend Market. To the right are more stalls, but in the Chillva Market style which is a little like a car boot sale.

There is no shortage of food available at Tinlay Market Phuket, with two large areas devoted to mostly Thai snacks (though with some interesting international options available, including steaks and sushi). These are found on the outer extremes of the market on both sides, with seating areas available near both.

The market specialises in interesting and unique local goods. You will certainly be able to find the typical T-shirt stalls and budget electrical goods which are common to almost all Thai markets, but you will also find unique fashions, local teas, tie-dye clothes, handmade souvenirs, beauty goods and treatments and a lot more. There are also a few amusement arcade stalls, featuring a shooting gallery. By the stage is a selection of attractions for young kids, including a small train track and an inflatable slide. Good-quality toilet facilities are also nearby.

To give an idea of prices, you can find t-shirts available from 100 baht, shoes for 200 baht, barbecued pork from 35 baht, mojitos from 90 baht, special soaps from 50 baht and a bag of pork dim sum from 30 baht.

Tinlay Market opened in its current setup in March 2017 and, at the time of writing (immediately after the grand opening), there were relatively few stalls in place, making the market seem a little small and very limited in available wares. What little there is, however, is very interesting and very reasonably priced, making the market well worth a visit if you are in the area. We hope that the growing interest in popularity of the market will mean that it soon fills out with more choice and we will keep you updated on the progress.
