This is a must do. If you want to munch on a Toad, Eel, off smelling meat goop, or any other type of food except perhaps a croissant, this is the place. A true local experience. We only saw 1 tourist. Tools, Bric a Brac,...More

There is a lot of stuff to sell here and cheap. Lots of clothes, tools, food, fruit, furniture, moterbike, bicycle, cows, buffalos, dogs, fish, everything. It's start from 5am. to 11.30 am. on the main road (Chiang mai-Hod Rd.) Every Saturday. So enjoy to visit!
