Takua Pa Old Town

Does the bus go to Takua Pa old town or do we have to catch a Tuk Tuk or taxi from near the new town. ie. How exactly do we get there from near Nang Thong Supermarket. Is it worth going there?

There is no direct bus service to the Old Town. You would need to catch the bus from next to Nang Thong Supermarket to the bus station at the new town and taxi from there to the Ild Town.

The best time is to visit the Sunday afternoon Walking Street Market when the Main Street is closed to traffic from about 3pm to sunset from md-October to mid-May and stalls mainly making, selling and serving a wide variety of delicious Thai food and drinks plus some souvenir stalls. Hire a taxi or song thaew and first visit the main Tsunami Memorial on the way at Ban Bam Khem then perhaps a Little Amazon Tour or the new Mangrove Tour on the river at Takua Pa. Or book a guided tour there with Green Andaman Travel.

Will the walking street market be still open in mid May and is there another day besides Sunday it is open?

The Walking Street Market only takes place on a Sunday until usually first couple of Sundays in May.
