They are still building the new market in Phuket Town. There are a plethora of stories about why the property is not completed - from they now want to put in air-conditioning to there is confusion as to what was agreed with the stall holders originally.
But there is still an example of what the market was like previously - well not exactly - there are no dogs, hanging meat and rats running around - the similar market is around the corner.
Great fun if you want to have a try of the local delicacies.
Have a go.
