Malin Plaza Patong Night Market

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 Phuket.

Eating at Malin Plaza

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. Beyond Phad Thai and fresh seafood, the most popular items are always the famous mango sticky rice, the banana pancake and the teppanyaki ice cream, a dessert prepared in front of you on a frozen steel dish.

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.

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 a lot cheaper in the street). Don’t miss the noisy but delicious ice cream Teppanyaki!

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.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
