Floating Market

Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

If you just cannot get enough of different shopping experiences and are looking for a unique take on it, you’ll maybe want to try the Phuket Floating Market located in Kathu. This is a giant market floating on a lagoon with plenty of stores and places to eat. Please don’t expect this floating market to resemble in any way the lively floating markets of Bangkok where long-tail boats arrive all day long, carrying fresh produce and cooked food which you can buy from the boaters. This market is more like a massive floating wooden structure packed with fashion stores, i Studio for Apple products and other similar type of stores. There is also a long-tail boat but it is there more for the kids to enjoy a thrill ride around the small lagoon. We have more information about this floating market on the following page. Go check it out – we have a short video showing the highlights of this market too!
