Ao Nang Landmark Night Market; was open everyday when we stayed in Ao Nang in June. One of the cleanest and neat Thai markets we have ever seen. And the beautiful views on Noppharat Thara beach and the sea are a big bonus!
The Wednesday evening market; obviously only on Wednesdays, not as much stalls as the market at the Landmark
Ao Nang Night Market; located in between condos, this is not the most beautiful spot for a market. Also less choice and variation in food. This might be the reason why it wasn’t as busy at this market as at the Ao Nang Landmark Night Market where you also have views on the sea.
