Availability: Friday, Saturday, Sunday only, all year round
Approximate timing: 18.00 – 21.00
Mode of transport: Minivan
Itinerary: Visit the popular night market in Krabi Town for an evening of bargain hunting and delicious street food – perhaps even a show or two. The stalls are laid out around a square in the centre of town that is closed to traffic for the purpose.
You’ll find cheap souvenirs, handicrafts, second hand goods, clothing, jewellery and accessories. A great caricature artist and a local painter can be found at work on most nights; there is also a stage in front of the eating area with performances from various schools and groups.
The street food section is an excellent place to sample authentic Thai food and drink; many Halal vendors are present.
Note: round trip transport only (no guide). On the way to the market a stop may be made at either the Krabi riverside (black crab statue) or the Wat Kaew temple, both in Krabi Town.
Expected group size: 6 – 14 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
Important: This is essentially a transport arrangement, not a guided tour. Once you reach the market you are free to explore on your own, or even move away from the main market to Vogue, the big department store in town, which is next door. Please bring cash for food, drink and souvenirs as no cards will be accepted.
