Krabi Night market

krabi night market

You know how I love a good market, right?

The weekend night market in Krabi town was a major highlight of our trip.
It is jam packed with delicious food, clothes, street performers, local seafood & more fresh fruit & veg than you can shake a stick at. These are a few snaps of the little foody adventure!

As well as amazing food there are some great little bars where you can grab a beer or in my case a cuba libre in it’s own bamboo shoot..

There is literally something for everyone, from coconut ice cream served out of fresh coconuts to BBQ Octopus.

Tom had his heart set on trying what he’d read was ‘the best Pad Thai this side of Bangkok’. We wiggled our way through the array of stalls in search of Ban Kooy.

Let’s just say it did not disappoint. Absolutely nothing like what you get in a restaurant.  Admittedly a little saucier than I prefer however the flavours were incredible.


It’s a share & share alike sort of deal. Tables litter the area, find a seat & make a friend. We ended up sharing a table with a lovely Chinese family. Don’t try to wish them a Happy Chinese New Year in their own language… I did and judging by the look on their faces I don’t think my well wishes were received. Turns out a Northern accent can butcher Mandarin. 


My advice is to head down early doors (around six) grab a beer and wander and nibble until you roll back to wherever you’re staying, which is sort of what we did.

    Great photos! We are considering to go there this weekend. Is it the market in “walking street”? Do they sell other things than food? If so, what kind of things?
