This beautiful old styled market will take you back to an older time in Thailand. Set along side the river, the smells and foods are truly unlike other markets in Bangkok. One for those that like to take the road less traveled.

If you to experience a truly Thai local market then this is definitely the place to be. Hardly patronized by foreigners, you can find all sorts of interesting local food here. Don't forget to try out the riverside restaurant and also the yummy coconut ice-cream!

So many goods and foods also very cheap, but the walking way is quite small traffic not flow when someone stopped by to buy something. I spent around 500 THB to got lots of foods.
