If you’re looking to come to Kamala Beach, Phuket, then you’ve made the first right decision! This little place on the western coast of the island province of Phuket has a lot more to offer than many people would think.
Although Kamala isn’t the biggest shopping hub of Phuket by any stretch of the imagination, what it lacks in size, it makes up with vibrant colors, wide variety, and one-of-a-kind products. The town is home to exotic shops that sell Bohemian clothing made in patterns only found here, along with a number of other intriguing souvenirs. It’s not a boring shopping experience by any means. With that said, here are the top shopping spots in Kamala:
Kamala Night Market
The Kamala Night Market is a weekly market that’s held right outside of Phuket FantaSea — one of the most exciting places on the Island. It’s an open-air market that sells everything from jewelry, food, and clothing, to exotic souvenirs. As soon as you step into the market, you will be swarmed by the numerous shops that surround you from all sides. If you’re interested in some traditional Thai food, this is the place to feast!
Kamala Beach Plaza
Kamala Beach Plaza is a unique local bazaar that brings a ton of stalls together in one venue. You can find all sorts of goods here, such as cheap beachwear, accessories, jewelry, and electronics, among other things. It’s pretty much a jumble of things that you can expect to find in small markets here and there. Unlike the small local market, however, everything is clumped up together to make one shopping center, making it a convenient retail therapy treatment center for both tourists and locals alike.
If you prefer to shop along the street, the Kamala Walkway is a shopping center that’s distributed along one road that runs along the Kamala beach. There are a number of things you can buy here, from fresh-painted art and hand-crafted goods to tattoos on the stalls. If you’re looking for arts and crafts-related things, this is the one place in Phuket where you can expect to find most of them.
Kamala Big C Market
If you’re looking for a more mundane shopping center, Big C is the place to go. The supermarket is located about ten minutes on a motorcycle from the main beach, and you can buy all the stuff that you can expect to buy from a supermarket. What else can we say about Big C, really?
Kamala Village Open-Air Market
If you’re looking for cheap T-shirts, delicious traditional Thai snacks, or even dried fish and meat to take back home to your friends and family, this is the place to get it. Kamala Village is the place where local craftsmen, farmers, and chefs come out to show what they have to offer to the world. It’s one of the best places to shop in Phuket, perhaps even in Thailand!
Night Market Chalong Phuket Thailand
The Chalong Market is anything but boring, as it’s one of the largest retail centers in Thailand. If you’re looking for cheap food and goods, this is the place to be. You will get to interact with the local vendors that are quick with their wits that may make you spend your money even quicker!
