  • You have plenty of good to choose from. I can say it has everything you need in one place. For Muslim tourism no issue, there is a halal store selling food. You just need to walk and will be found...

  • Lots of stores and well organised. The map at the entrance allows you to see where everything are located. Very impressed with the quality of the cotton made on most of their t-shirts. Go empty...

  • A very interesting market where you can spend a whole day. Most part of the market is only open from Friday to Sunday. You can find food, clothes, decorations, art and much more. It's really worth a visit on the weekend.
  • Overall pleasant experience. Not as crowded as before but most of the shops along the Main Street still open. Remember to look out for the meatball stall and the stall selling coconut ice cream and mango sticky rice (refer to photos). Meatballs handmade on the spot and it was so good we ordered again 🤪✌🏼. Inner lane shops were mostly closed but we didn’t have time for that also 😂 came at around 12 and left at 6pm with many loots. Rained on the day we came so remember to bring an umbrella as there are shops on both sides of the street.
  • Only on the weekend this market features pretty much everything any Thai market has to offer. Bargaining is still part and parcel of the exchange. I suggest finding the maps located at either entrance to help you hone in on any particular purchase you are looking to make. Take plenty of water and start buy purchasing a fan, because the days are long and hot. Also loads of affordable massage services in this market and they are air conditioned. The market also has plenty of food vendors, with pretty much any cuisine you can imagine.
  • Various choices, especially of clothes. Huge areal and not easy to navigate. Not crowded. Easy to communicate in English. Unfortunately it's not really authentic. A place, made for tourists. The price level is equivalent to tourist places. It's overpriced, even you can find funny clothes and really nice handicrafts.
  • Huge Market with over 10000 shops and still it's so easy to roam around and get the stuff you need. Super clean, not congested at all. A must-go if you are in Bangkok. (You would prefer going there twice I bet) The prices are not throwaway, but are very reasonable. The smaller shops/inner circle market gets closed by 6pm. The outer circle market shops keep open till late. Amazing Place to visit. Just be ready to keep walking 🤭 Happy Travelling
