  • Overall pleasant experience. Not as crowded as before but most of the shops along the Main Street still open. Remember to look out for the meatball stall and the stall selling coconut ice cream and mango sticky rice (refer to photos). Meatballs handmade on the spot and it was so good we ordered again 🤪✌🏼. Inner lane shops were mostly closed but we didn’t have time for that also 😂 came at around 12 and left at 6pm with many loots. Rained on the day we came so remember to bring an umbrella as there are shops on both sides of the street.
  • Only on the weekend this market features pretty much everything any Thai market has to offer. Bargaining is still part and parcel of the exchange. I suggest finding the maps located at either entrance to help you hone in on any particular purchase you are looking to make. Take plenty of water and start buy purchasing a fan, because the days are long and hot. Also loads of affordable massage services in this market and they are air conditioned. The market also has plenty of food vendors, with pretty much any cuisine you can imagine.
