Phuket Walking Street is a weekend market on Thalang Road in old Phuket town. Makeshift shops are set up along the 350 meters long commercial street that also features multiple permanent shops, restaurants, and guest houses. This carnival-like atmosphere provides an added attraction for tourists who can buy souvenirs, handicrafts, clothing, and electronic goods most affordably here.
The Phuket Walking Street is one of the best venues to sample local food, with numerous vendors hawking barbecued meat, Thai sweetmeats, and other delicious eatables. The Sino-Portuguese influence is evident in the decorations and colored neon-lit area. Lardyai Phuket (big market), as the weekly market is called in the local Thai dialect, literally converts into a fair with thousands of people thronging the street that becomes chock-a-block with people selling and buying different things.
