Phuket Weekend Market - cultural

Traditional Thai puppets
Phuket Weekend Market was not always where it is now and I cannot recall when this was first opened but it is certainly a place to visit if you are in Phuket during the weekend. It is open on a Saturday and Sunday from 5pm until about 10 pm.

Buddhist amulets
So what do I tell people? 
If you are on a mission to find fake pieces then this is not necessarily the market to come to. If that is not your itinerary then this may well be what you are looking for.

Mua Thai boxing materials
So are there fakes here? Yes there is but only if they are something popular with the Thai people - a variety of football shirts, handbags and Beats headphones can be found here.

There are a number of cultural items items which we found whilst we were here but there is no guarantee that you will find some of the items because some of the most interesting things are not always there...

There will always pieces which are linked to Buddhism but I am not always sugar they should be adjacent to naked figures...

Phuket Weekend Market is also on the other side of a Wat which is always worth a visit. I have lost count as to how many times that I have visited here so I have listed them below.
