Markets And Shopping Krabi Town
Markets and Shopping Krabi Town – where to go and what to buy.
Markets and Shopping Krabi Town! Krabi Town has a fantastic night market every weekend known as “Walking Street”. It’s in the centre of town behind Vogue shopping centre. Here you can find all kinds of handicrafts produced locally as well as clothing, food and local produce. There are always some street performers and artists as well so it’s a good way to kill a few hours. The walking street market also has some cool bars around the perimeter so after you tire of walking around, grab a cold beer and do some people watching.
For general tourist crap like t-shirts, sarongs, wooden elephants etc etc, head to Ao Nang where literally hundreds of shops sell all the same stuff at generally inflated prices. Be sure to haggle and remember much of what you are buying is made in China and contributes nothing to the local economy.
If you need to stock up on some new t shirts and general travelling clothes – try the second hand market once a week at the eagle traffic lights. Here you will find high quality brand name clothes often in near new condition at very cheap prices. Ask Punch for directions.
