Patong Beach Shopping

What to Buy and Where to Shop in Patong Beach

Patong Beach transforms into a large night bazaar every evening, when all the main roads become clogged with stalls selling handicrafts, silk scarves, sarongs and a variety of beach clothes, leisure wear, leather goods and luggage, CDs, computer games and electronic gadgets and toys.

It's chaotic but fun if you approach it with the right attitude -- just remember that bargaining yields the best results when done lightheartedly and with a smile. Most of the shopping here is aimed at the tourist market, so prices are a bit higher than they are in Phuket City. The main night market stretches all the way down the beach road and into small secondary soi (lanes) on all nights of the week.

In front of the Paradise Complex, another market sets up 2-3 nights a week, in high season, usually Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Lots of stuff aimed at the teenage market - recycled jeans, funky shoes and clothes, but also Thai sweets, orchids, ornaments and hair accessories. Set-up time is usually around 6-7pm until late and remember to bargain!
