Chillva Market- Phuket

Chillva Market Phuket is a cool, trendy night market with a somewhat bohemian vibe and an impressive selection of food and fashion stalls. Hard to miss by the side of Yaowarat Road (which runs by Tesco Lotus, on the way towards Phuket Town), the market has a distinctive look created by the use of colourful shipping containers as shopfronts.

So i went during the day when all was quiet and saw lots of the style that gives this place such a bohemian feel to it.

At the heart of the market is a small stage with a pond behind and amphitheatre in front, both of which host live performances when the market is in full swing. There's even a full size go Kart track!

Chillva Market Phuket is more popular among locals than tourists. Everything happening on stage is often completely incomprehensible to anyone not fluent in Thai.

Food vendors make up around more than half of the stalls and permanent stores at Chillva Market Phuket. You'll find funky pubs, cafes, ice cream parlours, and a wide selection of street foods. Prices are generally very low. Large servings from the market's more popular shops rarely exceed a couple of hundred baht.

Being quite small, taking a leisurely walk around Chillva Market Phuket won’t tire you out or take you half the night to explore.

Fruits De Mer- In Chalong- Phuket

On of the things about living on an Island is that your diet options expand to fresh fish!

I finally got to visiting one of my local food/morning markets and what a treat, not only the usual fruit/veg/meat but a fabulous array of shellfish and fish. Fresh from the mornings fisherman.

There are a few of these in Phuket, this is not a tourist market but a real working market for local people in Chalong.

A great place to see what there is .....and great some photography in too!
