“Just another local market - nothing great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

We had planned visiting this based on reading other people reviews however found it to be just another market mainly dealing in local market stuff.

The market per say is not very clean or higenic, Did not find anything that we purchased or food that we could pick to eat.

In case you are passing by this place on your way from "Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden" you can plan a drop at the market and visit for an hour or so. However do not plan a half day or day trip for this place as it would be then a disappointing day visit.

“An interesting day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

This is worth a few hours out, with lots to see and do. There are a few good items worth buying here. Some is more expensive than the city, some not so. As usual with Thai markets, decide to yourself what an item is worth before asking the price. Its only a bargain if you think its a bargain. As the person below has said, it gets very hot in the middle of the day so best avoid then.

“Fake but not bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

Although of course totally fake (setup for tourism) it is still a very nice and well set-up attraction. And no push for sale. A bit very busy in the weekend and Thai holidays as it is very popular with Thai people.
