Patong Shopping

Patong Shopping

After Phuket City, Patong is the next best place to do your shopping in Phuket.

There are shops, tailors, and of course roadside stalls.

Patong Department Stores & Malls

The main shopping centre is the sprawling Jungceylon Shopping Mall, a large shopping complex located on Rat-U-Thit Road in the centre of Patong. There is a department store, supermarket, restaurants, as well as plenty of boutiques selling brand name fashion items, electronics, souvenirs, and sporting goods. The huge three storey complex also contains a four-star hotel, nightclub and cinema.

Jungceylon Shopping Centre

Running from the beach road and connecting to the middle of Bangla where Soi Seadragon used to be is a the Kee Plaza, which opened in late 2011 and boasts over 60 boutiques, shops and restaurants under the shade of a large marquee.

For cheaper brand name items, mostly clothing, Patong’s modest but well stocked Ocean Plaza department stores are also worth a visit. There are two locations, one along Bangla and another along the Beach Road towards its southern end near the Holiday Inn.

Patong Markets & Stalls

There are quite a few shops and stalls open during the day, usually from the late morning, but it is at night that the streets really come alive. When the sun sets, Patong becomes a huge night bazaar with a continuous stretch of shops and stalls all along the beach road (Taweewong Rd.), which overflows down into the many side streets.

Items on sale include t-shirts, beachwear, watches, sunglasses, sarongs, handicrafts, souvenirs, music CDs, DVD movies, computer games, electronic gadgets and various other toys.

One of the larger open-air markets is located behind Jungceylon Shopping Centre known as Chatuchak Phuket, after the famous Chatuchak (or Jatujak) Market in Bangkok. As well as the usual stalls there is also a little fair with a few rides.

The OTOP Market at the southern end Rat-U-Thit Road opposite the Hard Rock Cafe also has plenty of stalls selling similar items and is worth a look.

Other street shopping zones include the area around the Paradise Complex, off Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee road, which sets up most nights of the week, and the road leading up to Patong Hospital, which is lined with stalls selling clothes catering mostly to locals and tourists.
