Rat U Thit Road Shopping

Where to Shop on Rat U Thit Road

One of the most enjoyable parts of going on holiday is shopping for souvenirs, not only for loved ones back home but for yourself. Many returning holidaymakers to Patong can’t help but be amazed by the rising number of businesses along Rat-U-Thit Road (or Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee Road in full). The expansion of the last couple of years has made Rat-U-Thit into one of the major shopping streets in Patong.

Jungceylon Shopping Mall Phuket Jungceylon Shopping Mall

Located downtown, diagonally opposite Bangla Road, the Jungceylon Shopping Complex has radically changed the face of shopping in Patong. Read More...


Amarit Thai Painting & Tavun Gallery

Banzaan Fresh Market

Many tourists will enjoy exploring Banzaan Fresh Market, a modern-looking Thai fresh market. Goods are displayed in an attractive manner and the market has sections for fresh food, meat, seafood, vegetables, flowers, Thai sweets and dry food as well as a selection of bizarre-looking but delicious fruits. There are many small kiosks selling clothes on the second floor as well as a big food court upstairs.

Location: Behind Jungceylon

Boon Som Plaza

This is another bazaar located in a big temporary-looking building. Look for the advertising signs out front for 15%-70% discount (it's been there forever…) and then try to bargain down some more. Many products displayed are aimed at locals (such as kitchenware and household items) but still there are plenty of T-shirts, clothes, handicrafts, CD & DVDs on sale.

Location: Right next to the entrance of Jungceylon

China Town Plaza

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.

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

Deli Supermarket

Friendship Leatherwear

Friendship Leatherwear is a small shop offering quality leather goods and accepts 'made to order' requests as well. Don’t let the discount sign in front of the shop fool you. It says '10-50% discount' which doesn’t mean you should not bargain for more. 

Type : Next to the Royal Paradise Night Market

Sainamyen Plaza

Sainamyen Plaza

Sainamyen Plaza is nothing like a real plaza. It is basically a big bazaar setup inside a temporary building. Though it doesn't look exactly like Marks & Spencer's the bazaar houses all kind of goodies including luggage, bikinis, sunglasses, woodcarvings and funny T-shirts with logos such as 'All Natural, Silicone free' and 'No Sex Please' as well as the standard 'No, I don’t want a f@?k’n tuk tuk, suit or massage. Thank you very much.'

At the end of the first row, there are a few stands selling local food and soft drinks plus a public toilet all in one tiny corner. By the way, you can drop your laundry at the tour counter before entering this 'plaza'. If you miss this one, don’t worry there are many more laundries along the road.

Location: Opposite the Playhouse Restaurant. Look for the (old) big sign at front says 'Shopping Sale Sainamyen Plaza'

Sainamyen Road

Here, there are a few shops selling sexy girls' clothes and tights. Many outfits look pretty hot but there's no way that a normal girl can fit in them unless she has the body of a pre-teen. Yes, this is where Patong's bargirls come to shop. There are also quite a few gold shops in this neighborhood and this is where certain foreign gentlemen of a generous persuasion come to shop for gold necklaces with (and for) their 'holiday girlfriends'. There is a DVD shop full of movies, old and new as well as a big phone shop, DTAC. If you are looking for a new mobile phone or just a local SIM card, this is the place to go.

Location: Turn left to Sainamyen Road at the Baan Sainamyen School Junctions.
