Other Shopping in Patong Beach

Bangla Mall in Soi Bangla, officially opened in late 2012, is a recent addition to its lively shopping scene and another good option for shopaholics. Bangla Mall features retail shops of all kinds as well as small kiosks, stands and restaurants. Customers will find plenty of things to take home, including watches, women’s clothing, eye glasses, kids’ clothes, shoes, bags, household items, pearls, jewelry, crystal, silk products, cosmetics, IT, spa products, leather goods and toys. There is also a bank (with ATM and money exchange service), Boots pharmacy shop, a supermarket and a food court. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: Daily
  • Location: Opposite Soi Rico’s Steakhouse, not far from Ocean Plaza Patong Shopping Mall, in Soi Bangla.

China Town Plaza (Sai Nam Yen Plaza) is a collection of renovated stands and stalls downtown Patong nearby Novotel Phuket Vintage Park Resort and the Royal Paradise Hotel. The renamed mall makes the corner of Rat-U-Thit Road and Sai Nam Yen Road and is a busy place.

Sai Nam Yen Road itself is certainly not Patong’s most appealing quarter as it is run down and rather scruffy but if you’re looking for a cheap meal or even cut-price airline tickets or even a ‘local’ haircut it’s worth a look at. However, the shopping mall adjacent to the road is squeaky clean and everywhere you’ll smell the not unpleasant aroma of fresh paint and concrete as it has had a complete makeover. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 10:00 – 23:00
  • Location: At the corner of Rat-U-Thit and Sai Nam Yen roads

Another market, selling much of the same types of goods plus One Tambon, One Product (OTOP) items, is just down the road behind the Holiday Inn. OTOP is a national program that encourages self-sufficiency in Thai villages through the development of small-scale manufacturing and design businesses. A range of high-quality and beautiful new products have emerged from this initiative, so look for the OTOP logo at shops and retail centres all over Phuket.

For souvenirs, crafts, luggage, tailor made clothes, sportswear and jewellery there are lots of small shops open during the day - but don't go shopping until after 11am, they're not usually open until late morning. Specialty stores such as Rosewood Lamps & Seeka are great places to browse for unique, well-made items. Although the tailors can make garments from magazine photographs, for best results, it's best to take an item to copy. On the way out of Patong, on Rat-U-Thit Rd (at the back) heading towards Karon and Kata beach, is a selection of furniture stores, art galleries and artifact shops. Read More...

DJ Plaza

On Patong’s southernmost main ‘soi’ or road you’ll find DJ Plaza, the newest addition to shopping in the area. Consisting of a broad range of shopping and entertainment options, this is a much quieter location than central Patong. Here you can browse in several arts and crafts shops, choose to have a family or individual portrait done from a photo or buy a ‘classic’ painting or even an Andy Warhol copy, buy a ‘recycled art’ monster made out of used motorcycle parts, get stocked up at the pharmacy, browse through extensive DVD and CD choices, compare T-shirt and beach wear prices and even join in organised darts matches in the sports bar.

DJ Plaza is closed. More info coming soon...

  • Location: Southern end of Patong, opposite of Duanjitt Resort.
  • How to get there: Follow the beach until Absolute Pearl Resort and turn left.
