Krabi Town Night Market

Krabi town in Thailand is one of the most charming and laid back places to visit in Thailand. It has a very unique personality with how authentic it is to the local culture making it stand out from the nearby beach towns. Krabi is also home to one of the best shopping spots in the country and the Krabi Town Night Market is a must-see for folks looking for pocket-friendly options.

The Krabi night market is also known as Walking Street or Thanon Khon Dern in Thai is one of the liveliest events happening in town. It is located in Soi Maharaj 8 and on the 2,000sqm plaza situated right behind Vogue Department Store in downtown Krabi and is held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 17:00 to 22:00. With local vendors exhibiting authentic local pieces, you’ll get to discover some of the best locally made products. This night market is also very well known for its eerily indistinguishable knock offs that you can get at a very cheap price.

Some of the favourites being Squid eggs, Grilled satay, Barbequed fish, cakes and sweets, you’ll never run out of things to try.
