Khaolak Market

Khaolak MarketToday we see the beginnings of some quite upscale resorts - and even some moderately priced 3-4 star resorts taking over the area. 
One of the best attractions of the area is the great number of restaurants - up and down the road that runs from the main highway down to the beach - and along the beach front.

While the Khaolak market is open every day - Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays are the primary days for the market with a wider selection of goods on offer - and Saturday is the biggest day for the market.  As the primary consumer for these vendors are local Thais and Burmese laborers you will find plenty of inexpensive clothing, vegetables, spices, trinkets, cheap electrical goods, watches, flowers and even edible bugs.

Colorful, often noisy and frequently odiferous (depending on the goods for sale), visiting a local market is a good way to get a taste of local culture. The market is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon for many of the local folks and can often be a festive occasion.
