What to Do at Malin Plaza Market?

Malin Plaza is a trendy night market at the southern end of Patong Beach, and it succeeded because it kept in mind that food is the magnet that makes people come in the first place. Offering a good balance of fun shopping, good cheap food and drinks, and a casual tropical atmosphere are what many travellers want to experience in Thailand.

Just walk around on any given evening and see how busy the market is. Here you can find lots of local foods, fruits, sweets, bars and cafes; it’s a good mix of local markets and bazaars. You can buy any fish or seafood from one of the market stalls, and someone will cook it on the spot. It’s cheaper, and more fun than eating in a restaurant, and you get a bit of childish pleasure to be closer to the real experience.

Fruits at Malin Plaza Night Market in Patong

The fruit area is always busy, and it’s a great opportunity to taste some of those tropical fruits you might have heard about but never really tried: dragon fruits, starfruits, snake fruits or sapodilla. But mango is always the winning fruit.

Then everyone goes for the two sweet treats most popular among travellers in Phuket: pancakes and mango sticky rice. Especially the pancakes: people seem to turn crazy every time they see them. Banana Nutella is the all-time winner, but you can get all kinds of mixed, even with mango, from 80 to 120 baht (it’s actually a lot cheaper in the street). Don’t miss the noisy but delicious ice cream Teppanyaki!

Shopping at Malin Plaza Night Market in Patong

The market is large and well located with a decent amount of parking. If you stay within Patong, a Tuk Tuk ride should cost you about 200 baht.
