Malin Plaza Night Market in Patong Beach

What to Do at Malin Plaza Market

Malin Plaza is a relatively new night market at the southern end of Patong Beach that succeeded where other night markets failed because Malin Plaza kept in mind that food is the magnet that makes people come at the first place. It applies to shopping malls just as well.

Just walk around Malin Plaza at any given evening and see how packed the tables are. You can find lots a local foods, sweets, bar and cafes. It’s a mix of local market and bazaar. People love that they can buy any fish from the market stalls and someone will cook it on the spot. It’s cheaper, more fun and you get a bit of childish satisfaction to be closer to the real experience.

The fruit area is very popular, a chance to try some of those tropical fruits you might have heard: dragon fruits, star fruits, snake fruits or sapodilla. But mango is always the winning fruit.

Then everyone go for the two ultimate treats in Thailand… pancakes and mango sticky rice. Especially the pancakes… people seems 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!

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.
