Sa Dec Market, Sa Dec

(4.5/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Sa Dec Market so as to learn what other people eat and engage all your senses to the full. Take in the sights of beautifully displayed variety of fruit, all from dragon fruit to all other kinds of exotic fruit. Food stalls also feature a dazzling collection of everything from fillets of rats to fresh snake-head fish still trashing about, form chickens squawking in cardboard boxes to pig heads arrayed on stalls. Make sure you wash fruit well with bottled water. If you don’t have the stomach for such food, take photos freely. No one will be angry. Sa Dec Market is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Dong Thap Province Edition.
