Its smaller than chuttachuk. It doesn't have as many handbags stalls as MBK but I think it is a pretty good market. The outer ring seems to be fixed prices and they weren't bad. We found some of the people inside the market - the sellers - could be a bit grumpy but I would be to if I was stuck in there all day. We chose not to buy fromthe grumpy ones - a smile will always win us over.

I don't have a problem with them making money out of us, we get it cheap they make money -- win win all around. As long as its all in good humour.

heathBrisbane: thanks! agreed, we buy from whoever's friendlier.

land premier: wow 7 dogs! how envious!! here in singapore, we're only allowed max 3 dogs. and if you live in an apartment, the dogs cannot exceed 10kg each!

But that's just the legislation .... :)

I get the idea now .... i can spot the similarities Ben Thanh has with MBK and Chatuchak. Thanks again!!

Sadly, in MBK I can't buy anything too :-) I tried to come there twice but had to go.

Ywy,

I had 11 last year then just in Dec 2006, two of them gave birth and I had 9 extra. So total 20.

Now job is a lot easier with 7 :-)
