Wat Thepnimit is a Wat which I have visited a number of times over the years for the early morning Songkran celebrations. It is only about 3km outside Phuket Town and on the way to Chalong - the first time that I visited it was a stange place because you could not actually see the Wat from the road but just the school.
In the afternoons (on the empty football field opposite) there is a large market swiftly put up. There is actually a Chinese Shrine currently being built in the far corner... This did mean though that there were a lot of young children at the market!!
This is a traditional Thai Market and visit here if you wish to visit a real Thai market versus a Tourist Attraction.
As many times as I visit I do not know about these deep fried whole chickens - have you tried one?
I was surprised to see the fresh frogs - peeled and ready for the grill.
And then look down and see the frogs ready to be set free.
Then there were the usual bits and pieces - the handbags and the used shoes.
Then the was the wonderful grocery items - the fresh vegetables and the fresh fish.
