Discover the true charm of southern Thailand and explore the market of Takuapa Old Town - exotic snacks and authentic smiles included.
Takuapa is the main town in the district of the same name and consists of old and new areas, which are about 7 km apart.
The Takuapa Walking Market is held every Sunday afternoon in the old town. The best time to go is 4pm when it is in full swing: street buskers, children in tradition Thai costumes singing and dancing on a stage.
The main street, Takuapa Road, is lined with buildings noted for their Sino-Portuguese architecture, Chinese shrines and tea houses.
Takuapa Old Town’s buildings resonate the charm of about a century ago, providing travellers with a portal into another time.
