Night Market, Krabi
This is the place to buy the souvenirs because it is cheap compare to other places in Krabi. Lots of food choices, you will feel like you want to try everything because it looks delicious. Fresh seafood, pad thai, pancakes, local food, lime juice, etc.
What I liked about the market was the food there! Be sure to try the coconut ice cream that contains real coconut meat 50baht! The fresh oysters topped with fried onions and thai chilli sauce! And the Popped rice crackers that are perfect snacks!
If you want to experience the real local food and not those from tourist restaurants, facing the sea from the market, head right along the road and travel (on bike) for about 5 mins to reach a stretch of street food stalls along the sea.
I've been to phiphi islands, hong islands, white water rafting and even travelled to Krabi town from Ao nang by bike! Taxi transport cost 10 times as much as motor bike rental. View my blog to know more. Link is in the profile page.
The market is located in the middle of the town and is a nice place to wander around to see all the different types of fruit and veg including some strange looking green beans things that I've never seen before. There's also cooked and snack food to be have here with a couple of stalls selling a large choice of different dishes, some selling various types of meat and fish on sticks and another selling sausages wrapped in some kind of batter.
There are so many happenings here: Good foods, good music, lots of things to buy like clothes, shoes, soap carving, custume jewellery etc.
