Fisherman’s Village Walking Street is a lively and colourful market held every Friday evening along the main street in Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village. The ‘walking street phenomena’ gained ground in Thailand over the past decade and nowadays, most of the main touristic destinations have a weekly walking street event.
Bophut’s has all the ingredients that made this kind of open-air market so popular: dozens of stalls selling what seems to be an unlimited list of items. You’ll be able to find from clothing to handcrafted souvenirs to accessories of all sorts, as well as an amazing choice of local street food (it wouldn’t be a market in Thailand without readymade snacks) and even some cocktails stalls!
