  • A large Thai market place....Everything from livestock, to clothing, to local produce, hardware, motorcycles, furnture, and everything in between..... Acres of vendors..... An interesting experience....Not aimed for tourists.....It's a large Thai marketplace where many locals do their once a week shopping.... Bargains to be had along the way..... Be polite and don't photograph people just living their lives....Nothing exotic - but different than a flea market in the west.....A bit of real rural Thailand....
  • Biggest market in San Pa Tong District, It is famous as Buffalo market because it used to be the market for buying & Selling Buffaloes. But now it turns into a big market for food, clothing, footwear, hardware, grocery, daily needs, spices, meat & much more. The best thing about this market is - you do not need to bargain for the price, everyone has displayed the price upfront and which is fixed & super cheap. It starts around 6AM until 9AM, so go early to buy fresh. There is a proper parking on both sides of the main road.
