I really enjoyed looking at all the amulets. They were interesting and it felt like a spot unique to Bangkok - more so than most of the other markets.

It is fine to go there. Dont expect too much. I would not put it 1st time on the bucket list as most see in Bangkok. It is close to a pier and Grand Palace.

Was interesting to walk around, but nothing for us - only amulets, symbols, sculptures and more was sold and it was really a narrow one-way street. Good to experience it once, but not worth a second visit.

Plenty of religious ornaments & paraphernalia. Not my thing exactly but it was nice to see "the real authentic Thailand" call in if you're passing by but don't go out of your way to visit there

We wandered into the fascinating Tha Parachan Market serendipitously when we got off from Tha Maharaj Pier. At first we thought they were selling old coins and antique trinkets on tiny little tables. Then a man told us that these were actually religious charms and...More

Many tourists wonder what the 'amulets' are about. They are a combination of superstitious beliefs mixed up with Buddhist and Hindu culture.
