  • Wow! This place is incredible! So many people, so many little markets with all different kinds of things. I love it here! This market is for local people so they are very friendly. There is a lot to see and taste. Very good food and drinks. You can easily spend around 3-4 hours walking around here. You won't be disappointed.
  • You never want miss to visit this vast traditional market in Bangkok. Explore half day and it still not over yet. Must spare one whole day because they open till 6 pm. Morning is the best time to visit because not over crowded with tourist or visitor. To Re charge your stamina again they had massage service of feet/body /or whole body for some duration time. Trust me you need to do the massage after a long exploration of the market. Before going, prepare lot bottle of drink and big backpack. You never know how much you spent for shopping. And need a lot of water because it is so hot there. A little tips for shipper. do some quantity shopping like buy 3 or more to get special discount price tag.
