I thought it was a very popular market with stalls. What was not my surprise when I get there and see many stores well mounted, with quality products: perfume shops, antique shops, clothing stores and even crocodile handbag store.

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.
