  • Fun experience, the prices are affordable (a dress for 100 baht?! It’s so cheap I could buy the whole shop- oh and some are negotiable even) and overall, it’s a pleasant visit. But, it’s extremely huge and will take you almost half of the day to explore the whole area. Most stores might sell the same thing too. There are many different sections, from food, clothes, collectibles, antiques, home and living and more. I love the pets section but beware that there are exotic animals there too. I don’t know what are the rules in Thailand but I believe some of those animals are not meant to be “pets”. At least, it’s kinda illegal in my own country to own those. What I’m disappointed is that the food section is very small. Just one stretch of stalls selling the same stuff and a hawker / small food court and that’s it. I would have expected more variety since I enjoy street food more but, alas…A shame indeed. You can get here easily by taking a grab, I paid less than 200 baht (depending on where you’re departing from too). Do take note there are at least 4 entrances to enter the market and if you’re worried about getting lost or wanting to visit a specific section only, take a map from the entrances. They have printable ones and you can carry it around with you (but the prints are so small I think I need a magnifying glass).
  • 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.
