This night market is bound to visit everyone who visits the island of Phuket.
Most of those who come to rest in Thailand know how the Thais love markets and the people of Phuket are no exception.
Today I want to show one of the most interesting markets on the island of Phuket – Lardyai.
Lardyai is a Sunday evening market in the old city of Phuket.
Some people have associations with an unpleasant smell, garbage, and other muck when thinking about markets. I hasten to please you Lardyai is the absolute opposite of usual markets.
It is spotlessly clean and there are no unpleasant smells :). Local traders will please you with a wide variety of local street food and desserts.
In addition to food at the fair are souvenirs, art objects, and handmade crafts.
Also, you can see a small show and listen to foreign music performed by a Thai musician.
I really liked this place, and I definitely can recommend it to other travelers.
Please watch a short video below that I’ve made here
