You have to visit the night market or walk up the road to Thong Sala food market which is open everyday and night. You will need to visit here more than once as you will have too much choice and just impossible to eat that...More

We always eat here when we are in Chaweng as there's so much choice and the seafood is very fresh. You must try Cocktails by Mr Mhee when you get there!

There is a huge variety of Thai Street food on offer. I accept that our palates are different, but we did not find the local food on offer as tasty as elsewhere in Thailand. This should however not deter you from enjoying the open air...More

Nothing special about this night market. I thought with a city the size of Surat Thani, it would be a bit larger than what it is. Still cheap/good food. Easy to get to. Close to a mall with nice air con and shops.

Night market always open everyday from 4 PM until 10 PM. If it's raining during the day, some food stalls or hawkers may close because there is a few customer in the evening.
