Where to Go in Khao Lak at Night?
Bang Niang Night Market is found just inland from Bang Niang Beach and is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. It's got all sorts of locally made Thai clothes and souvenirs for sale, and it's also a great place to spend a night of food, drinks and traditional music.
There’s street food galore at the market, from seafood and skewers right through to the scorpions on sticks and dishes you’ve heard even of. You’ll find cocktail stalls blaring out their favourite regional Thai tunes, as well as beer tents where you can chat with the locals. It's close to the tsunami museum too, and the infamous police boat monument that was swept inland during the tsunami all those years ago.
