Been here before on my last last visit.
Use to be interested.
But don’t need to go now.
80% of the shops are closed.

A must do experience with an explosion of colour , people and all manner of foods you can imagine and some you can't. It was so interesting wandering around and the seafood was mind blowing. This is a must do experience.

Better than i expected
Jan 2020 • Couples
Been to a few of these markets so was expecting much of the same. Got there as it opened at 4pm. Most of the stalls were set up and ready but the masses hadn't arrived yet so very easy to stroll around and look at the stalls. The food part is amazing lots of different varieties from bbq skewers of meat and fish, salads, fruit, bugs and much more. Lovely campervan cocktail bar out of the roofed area selling nice cocktails and entertained with some live music. Had a lovely evening there would recommend a visit.

Brilliant Night Market in Phuket
Jan 2020
This is an amazing night market in Phuket. This was walking distance from where we were staying whilst in Phuket, so had to discover it. Loads of shops for all the Thai Souvenirs and a few quirky items that would fit in your suitcase. The food section is amazing and had so much food to choose from. A great atmosphere and so vibrant with all the people, both locals and tourists. If you are in the area, you should definitely check this night market out.

Super fun!
Dec 2019 • Couples
Love the environment! So many cool things to eat and buy. You could definitely spend 2-3 hours here. If you have kids, keep them close because it’s very busy - and big. Try the salted fish on the grill. Best fish we’ve ever had!

Crazy market
Jan 2020 • Family
We went for some food and to check the vibe, it's very crowded so you really need to be careful, better if you go early, after 7 it's quiet crazy. Highly recommend it to try a bit of the local cuisine.

Gotta come but consider this a food experience
Dec 2019 • Family
Chao Fa variety weekend market is the chatachuk of Phuket but at 10% the size of chatachuk Bangkok and 10% of the level of choice.

The food here is probably more the major factor to come here whilst a lot of shops repeat the same thing sold making it more like a night market in Patong.

You still have to come here and visit but for chatachuk fans don’t think of it as an equivalent.

It is so hard to find out the name of this market as I think some websites confuse different markets. The official name posted on the board and signs is “Chaofa weekend variety market”

It’s possible to visit Chillva and Chaofa on one night but it’s whether you can find a driver to make it worthwhile.

Plenty of transport and taxis touting for back to Patong it Karon area.
