    Fun place to browse and go shopping. It isn't open everyday so make sure to check with your hotel. Their is a kabob stand near the entrance which is AMAZING.

    Not very big, but worth visit. Has some interesting shirts but nothing I haven't seen in other places. There's however some good street seafood I have not seen around my place. But if you need souvenirs, this is a very good place to visit. Remember as in any temple you need to dress appropriately. That means no bikini, no shorts, no miniskirt, revealing tank tops etc. Now I have seen ladies in shorts so my guess is they are flexible towards tourists, but don't do it out of the respect for Thai culture.

    Night market. Typical food, and many things you don't need to buy. But excellent.
