What can you get at the Alive Market?
Food and drinks
Since it has recently opened, it features around 30 food stands offering a variety of local foods, and desserts for the sweet tooth. If you enjoy local favourites, you will love the Som Tum (Thai Papaya Salad), fresh seafood, and all sorts of fried snacks. If you’re not a fan of spicy Thai dishes, don’t worry, you can also have food options like kebabs, steak or fries providing a more familiar taste for tourists which you can enjoy with smoothies, mocktails, fresh drinks, or popsicles.
There are a few shops where you can get souvenirs such as handcrafts, clothes, accessories and garments. The shops are not comparable with those at the Bang Niang Market but have a lot of potential to grow.
Activities around the Alive Market
There is a craft workshop at the Alive Market where you can DIY a unique handcrafted piece of your own, for example, a painting which you can take back home as a memory of Khao Lak.
They recently stopped showing movies, but there is still an outdoor seating area to enjoy snacks and drinks. When it rains, there is a big covered restaurant where you can sit and grab a menu.
The recently new Alive Market in Khao Lak may be small and compact, but it certainly packs a punch with its variety of food and drinks. It adds richness to the vibrant atmosphere of Nang Thong Beach and the local life, enhancing the overall experience for visitors. It’s sure to evolve and expand as it becomes more established.
