Phuket Down Town Plaza



Phuket Town Market (and Down Town Plaza) is an area which has seen a great many changes since I arrived in 2000.

In the early, early morning the road is littered with trucks selling produce in but and then these trucks either return to where they came from or relocate nearby. Later the stalls line the streets and the local people start shopping.



This particular post is not to do with the food but the people. I find the best thing to do is simply sit there and watch the world go round...



There are always a lot of motorbikes



some even take care of their dogs in the basket at the front. But it is a very busy place to visit...




How about trying some street food whilst you are here - even if it is only hard boiled eggs and nuts (or something)...



I always like to watch the monks walk by me...



Then you can always get the local bus somewhere - but they do finish at about 4pm?



They also serve as a way of taking the shopping home...
