I came here specifically to get some lunch. The choices are endless! So much to choose from and very inexpensive! It's a fun place to walk around and see a Thai market in action. Not designed for food to be eaten there as no tables.

This was a wonderful experience! Here is where locals go shopping for food, and there's all kinds of it. People don't speak English that much, but it's always possible to communicate somehow.

A great place to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, and inexpensive Thai food. A bee-hive of activity, especially from 4-6 pm. Other shops sell shoes, clothing, cosmetics, etc. includes a bakery as well.
