Touts (Those guys showing you a card with the menu on Bangla road) are not working for bars! Never follow a tout in the street with his little card of whatever he says you will see in the show! They will take you to another bar, pretending Suzy Wong’s is closed today + you will be charged extra, just walk away!

Phuket has many night markets but I would highly recommend you to visit Chillva Market. This is a cool, trendy night market and what I like the most is the Bohemian vibe here. The market has a distinctive look created by the use of colourful shipping containers as shopfronts. Chillva Market has a mix of shops, market stalls, bars, restaurants, food stalls and often has live music too! 

Being quite small, taking a leisurely walk around Chillva Market Phuket won’t tire you out or take you half the night to explore. Most of the stalls are often run by young people trying to make a little money for fun and studies.

Not only drinking and eating, but you can also enrich your nightlife in Phuket by enjoying the unique show! Phuket Simon Cabaret has been successful for more than two decades with the flashy costumes and theatrical, over-the-top performances of Ladyboy.

The theatre and its stage are impressive. I believe you will definitely be amazed at the professional approach to each musical theme, laugh along at the comedy and fun. It is a visual spectacular that will have you leaving wishing there was no more to see.
