Phuket Walking Street is an extremely popular market/fair held every Sundays in the heart of Old Phuket Town on Thalang Road. This 350m-long commercial and cosmopolitan street is already well frequented during the week due to the many shops, restaurants, bars and guesthouses it hosts, but reach an affluence climax from 16:00 until 22:00 during this weekly event; also known as Lardyai Phuket (talaad yai i.e. big market in Thai) Phuket Walking Street is a must-visit for people who would like to get a glimpse into southern Thailand life. The event gathers an outstanding number of stalls selling an eclectic range of products from handcrafted accessories and souvenirs to clothing to fancy jewellery; great place indeed to find original presents to bring back home. As in any Thai market, food is the centre of all attention at Lardyai Phuket; you could sample here some of the most favourite street snacks such as barbecued squid, chicken and pork, khanoms (Thai sweets), beef and chicken skewers, and even an international touch with a converted songtheaw (Thai local bus) selling hamburgers. Phuket Walking Street is indeed a lively and great Thai-style weekend market.
