Stalls selling the same souvenirs, clothes, and foods you can find anywhere. Put it all together in one place however, and it becomes a magnet for tourists to come and spend money. Got a years supply of 100 baht "genuine" ray bans and oakley sunglasses...More

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have visited Thailand six times on vacation. As such we have visited markets all over the country. The service and attitude of most of the vendors sucked at this market. With the economy battling and tourism...More

The night markets were awesome fun. Bartering, trying street food and seeing how the locals work and operate. Highly recommend a visit if you're staying in Karon.

We visited the temple markets and found them to be the same as every where else. Nothing different and basically the same prices. Lots of local food stalls with even the exotic foods and bugs. It is very hot under all the awnings and tarps....More

A big market on the ground of the Karon Temple twice a week. Unfortunately it has nothing new but the typical tourist articles you find everywhere just consolidated in one place. However for every first time visitor a must-see.
