  • It's a unique experience. You get to see local producers. From clothes to souvenirs the market covers it all. It's a pretty huge place so better to start exploring as early as possible which you'll get ample time for exploring, avoid sun as well as crowds of people. Collect a map at the entrance so you'll not get lost. You should look into the quality of products thoroughly and bargain. Must try: the coconut ice cream, it was just AWESOME!
  • One of the most wonderful places to enjoy the weekend. It's everything there - starting from souvenirs and Thai themed clothing items, continuing with beautiful home decorations, amazingly decorated fish tanks and just anything one can imagine to get from a market. The most beautiful it becomes shortly before the sun is setting down and when you have finished your shopping day. There are many nice food options, drinks are available like on every corner. Every shopper's paradise on earth.
  • This market is a good place to shop in. Most items are cheap and some shops sell good quality clothing that I didn't see anywhere else in Bangkok. Most of the vendors are nice and you can even negotiate with them. You can buy pretty much anything here. There are food stalls scattered here where you can rest but the seats tend to be limited.
  • Wow.. what a market!! You can get lost inside and spend a whole day inside this market. Rows after rows after rows of shops filled with so many interesting and useful things. Household, handicraft, clothing, shoes, art, souvenirs and on and on. Also, so many places to eat and especially by evening so many small roadside eateries spring up. It’s a nice experience. Btw, the prices are attractive and on top one could negotiate as well. Definitely worth the visit. It is well connected by both road and train.
  • Great market selling tons of everything! Locals shop here as well. Download the map before going as that will help you navigate this huge market ... and even with the map, it is very easy to get lost, which is also part of the fun. When getting tired of shopping head to section 6 and right on the street you will find an amazing little stand selling fresh coconut ice cream with stycke rice and mango. Outcome of the day: I bought really nice presents for family and friends back home.
