Patong Night Market, Phuket

Having rounded off a cracking supper at Baan Rim Pa we decided that a wander through the town was in order.  As we did so, we happened upon a fantastic little night market, largely set up for entertainment, in the form of bizarre variations on the standard fairground games of 'skill' and 'luck', complete with life-size stuffed animals as prizes, and food.  And boy, was there a lot of food to be eaten.

Some of it looked fantastic – almost too good to skip, although sadly our dinner had left us stuffed to the gunnels. 

Some of it was perhaps... less appetising. 

And then there was pudding galore.

Patong is a funny old town, really.  It's got great spots – like this market, like Baan Rim Pa.  But it's also got a massively seedy side, complete with the ping pong shows and open-air strip clubs of lore. 

So I guess it's kind of up to you what to make of it.
