I went to this old market in the late morning. It was very hot from the pub street to here. It was crowded with tourists and locals (wet market). I was purely there to see the wet market as I'm more interested in how the locals do their shopping at that area. There are vege/seafood/meat/fruits/flower sections and got stalls selling... More

One of the best value/quality places to shop in South East Asia, especially for silk goods - we got most of our Christmas shopping done here in less than an hour.

Here you can find all the souvenirs for your trip, and don´t forget to negotiate as all the prices are inflated. Good Luck!

This is a very stereotypical large asian market. It consists of many food stalls mostly catering to the locals, while the rest is mostly souvenirs for tourists. In a small tourist town, this is a worthwhile way to spend a little time.

My wife and I enjoyed shopping in this area. We were lucky to have ventured into shops where the owners/vendors were polite and friendly, and not too pushy..you have to haggle the prices though and prices are quoted in dollars. All the buys we did here were on cash basis only as they did'nt accept credit cards. We found two... More

You can find everything in there and the prices will depend on your ability to negotiate. In general the materials have good quality. T is close to the pub street ant the night market so we can enjoy walking around too.

A good place to visit. Typical Asian market. Packet to the rafters with knock off fakes. We had a good walk around tho and did some bartering which was fun. It's not a place you can get in and out of in 5 minutes very easily tho so bear that in mind if you need to be somewhere.

On the last day before our departure to the airport, we took a tuk tuk which costs USD4 to the Old Market.The market is really packed with locals as well as tourists. Many small stalls were set up on the ground, like vegetables, fish, meat. There are many stalls which sell spices, snacks and the usual souvenirs one could find... More

While you can find a large variety of items here (if you look past the knock offs), the place stank like the New York Subway during summer. The smell of hot, rotting trash is only overwhelmed if you are in the food area next to a spices stall. But beware the butcher sitting on her work bench next to her... More

I bought a quantity of silk here, following instructions from my sister. The quality was the same as in Jim Thompson in Bangkok, the price a lot better. And from a near by stall I bought some good quality rough silk scarves to bring home. Bring cash and bargain hard - it's expected. Elsewhere in the market, you could buy... More
