One of Bangkok’s best-kept secrets is Khlong Toey, a chaotic, sprawling food market not far from the city’s centre. It’s a travel photographer’s dream, packed with shouting market vendors offering live produce, fresh fruit and vegetables and cooked local dishes. Eye-opening and enthralling, it’s a great insight into how locals live – and to where your moo manow really comes from.

It's massive and it's the place were street vendors go to by the food they sell for higher prices. I was struck by the all the live animals and butchered ones as well as the filth lining the...

This is a traditional market in the city center of Bangkok that sell a variety of daily necessities, such as agriculture, fisheries, livestock, fruit, seasoning, etc. Of course the price is very cheap. Interesting, especially to get the raw food to be cooked at home.

Located In The Very Good Location, This Market Is The Place Where All Fresh Fruits, Vegetables, Fresh Meat, And Everything About Cooking Are. The Smell Is Not That Good But Still Acceptable. The Price Is Super Cheap But Full Of Good Qualities. All Are So Fresh Except The Smell Of The Area.

If you like food, I mean food as a source not as a finished product then this is a must. The place teems with life, colour, energy and smells. Its vital, lively and demands your full attention. Its better and more real than Hollywood. You may see some rats, but then you're as likely to see them on Sukhumvit. We... More

I love going to local markets, as you get a real sense of the food and how local people live. This place was fantastic, as the sights and smells were exactly what I was looking for. My mission was to buy fresh curry pastes and shrimp paste to take home and I was not disappointed. The highlight was seeing bowls... More

Traditional wet market of the East. The usual poultry, meat, fish, fruits and vegetable sections plus insect section which is particular exciting. Great deal everywhere, goods are fresh and prices about 25% of what you get at supermarket. Dress appropriately... Rainboots or sneakers, prepare to get your feet wet (and dirty) wearing slippers as you walk through fish and seafood... More

Not far from the business district of Sathon you find this market - almost a small town in itself. Here they sell anything from gearboxes to crayfish. Great place.

A great large and local wet market, where all the produce is fresh, fresh, fresh ( some of it so fresh, it's still living)! The market can be reached easily from the nearby Khlong Toey MRT station which is only a few 100 metres away. If you can, wear "no slip" shoes as the aisles are very wet with melting... More
