A cozy and hidden, laid back place to enjoy lovely breezes and views to the calm river. Nice authentic food and staff and a pleasant laid-back atmosphere. Prices are reasonable compared to the location.

Old Thai style market where can enjoy traditional Thai food and staffs that remind the previous days. Most of the buildings are made of wood. Some restaurants and cafe offer the river view. Short walk around 10-15minutes can enjoy whole market.

This place has local food and stuff. It's good for family and friends to visit. It's right next to the river and good for hot and rainy day.

If you want to get a flavor of Thai local market, this is a very good market. A very good collection of Thai delicacies and the food was awesome. Bear in mind, the food is spicy (even for me, I am Indian) so you may...More
