  • An authentic market where locals also trades. The large food market is at night at 2 to 3 p.m. 6 in the morning. The market starts otherwise the clock 16 to 20. There are market Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. There are a lot of booths where there is everything from Buddhafigure, toys, SOAP, shoes, clothes, etc. it is possible to eat at the booths and there is ample opportunity for both to drink and eat. It can clearly recommended to take to this market. And got an experience out of the ordinary: so a frogs where the skin was ripped off by so they were ready for preparation as well as a pig head that was sprættet up.

  • OK. Best in the area. Haggle for a decent discount. Spent about 2-3 hours. Friendly people.
  • Most stores sell the same really bad quality tat. One woman tried to sell me a shirt saying it was linen when the tag on it actually said cotton. When I pointed this out she laughed and actually still had the cheek to start saying it was special cotton! Would have liked to see some actual north Thai like handmade goods.
  • Bit of a small market. Not much in terms of goods but the best all in one in the area. Many of the stall holders can be found back in town on the markets off days with the same goods. You can barter but only so far. Still it's friendly and fun.
  • A variety of cheap food and some shops selling nice cocktails. Also one can find different offers from perfumes to oils and clothes to earphones.
  • Unfortunately some Shops burnt down last week in a fire. But still a good atmosphere... Prices are ok for a market.
