Chillva Market Phuket

Chillva Market Phuket is the latest and definitely the best night market on the island. Everyone loves those night markets and Thai teenagers more than everyone else. In addition, Chillva use this new trend of making use of old containers!

Every town in Thailand seem to have a surprising amount of night markets and they are always packed. (Note that this Chillva Market is not to be mistaken with the new Phuket Floating Market in Kathu few kilometre away which is a big bigger but mostly deserted.)

Chillva Market Phuket has a young fun vibe to it.  A lot of the items on sale are original stuff and local creations, not many copies here (go to the other Naka Weekend Market if this is what you are after). Clothing, jewellery, shoes and tons of accessories or gadgets you don’t really need but will buy anyway might grab your attention. But miss this chance to try the local food! Salty or sweet and colourful, it is one of the key ingredient of the success of such place. Did I mention you can also try all kinds of friend insects? No to miss!

In 2 corners of Chillva Market you will find small bars and restaurants built inside containers. This is a new popular way to set up markets with a new dimension. It’s easy to carry and fun to decorate the way you want it. Best of all, by putting two containers on top of each other, you get an instant rooftop bar with a view above the market! How smart!

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
