  • Great cheap markets with alot of the same souvenirs...always barter with the stall holders and once it becomes pushy just say thank you and leave. Street food is tasty and they cook in front of you. I...  more »
  • I know I'm probably being harsh but I find these markets tricky! I have a price in my head that I think is fair and as the negotiations start I feel myself getting aggressive. By the end I don't reall...  more »
  • It's touristy, but still a good market. Great deals to be had and the street food was yum! Enjoyed a beer at the bar at the entrance and people watched. Lovely way to spend an afternoon  more »

  • Nice market to go to for local food. There are lots of standard cafes and local stalls that are put up for the weekend market. Do try the Thai noodle soup here. You can also but green groceries like fresh fruits and vegetables along with fish and poultry from here. For shoppers there are many stalls selling home decor stuff, I picked up hangings made from coconut shells, pretty unique stuff.
  • Fun markets to walk around. Prices are very reasonable and in most cases you can bargain. The food is great, definitely try the banana roti. The currency exchange at the entrance appears to have very reasonable rates. Most shop keepers are really easy to talk to and don't hassle you much.
  • Good markets, a bit cheaper than local stores on the main street. Don't forget to barter - start at least 50% to 60% below their price and you will get a good deal. Great bar at the end of the markets - can be very hot to walk around during the day, suggest you go at night. Have fun😊
  • Excellent place to visit for food to eat or take away. Clothing stalls trinkets and souvenir stalls. Easily spend 2 or 3 hours here if out browsing. Well worth a visit.
  • Night Market made for tourists with a high number of the usual souvenir and clothing stores and some food stalls. If you are there anyway, it is fine to go, but not worth to especially plan to go there. Should give tourists (who haven't seen anything else from Thailand) the feeling to really have experienced Thailand ;-)
