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.

If you're wanting an authentic market experience, this is the place to go! We walked through the bustling market for about an hour and only saw one other tourist snapping photos. It's definitely not the typical 'tourist' experience you would have if you went to other popular markets.... But if you are interested in seeing how the locals live and... More

This place gave me a real sense of local life in Bangkok. We went at dusk, it was very crowded and we didn't see a single other tourist. Live chickens and ducks were smashed into tiny cages and making a ton of disturbing noises. I did not see animals being slaughtered but I could hear it. The smell was almost... More

There is not much to add to the other reviews. Lots of meat and fish from still alive to cut and chopped. You can best get there from MRT Queen Sirikit Convention Centre. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk from there - just take the correct exit (3 ?) that refers to Khlong Toey market and this gets... More

About 10 minutes walk from MRT line (Khlong Toei station). The market is near the FYI Center. We love to visit the local markets when visiting any countries to buy their local fruits. Wet markets are a common site in ASEAN countries, Japan, Korea and China. Noryangjin Fish market in Seoul and Tsukiji Market in Tokyo are 2 of our... More

A wonderful experience to see this fresh food market. Old style market with live fish and other fresh produce. The smells, the sounds, the crowd, just wonderful experience. Mostly local people. Well worth some time if you look for authentic experiences in Bangkok. Not my last visit here...

I came here on my last day in Bangkok and I'm glad I went out of my way to come here. It's a feast for the eyes. There is so much to see/smell/hear. I'm accustomed to fresh markets since I grew up in Asia, so the sight of live fish getting beat over the head and slapped to the ground,... More

Great market. Flashing smells, colours and People. Like it a lot. The prices are cheap. And the fish is so fresh it jumps from alone into your pocket.

Klong Toey market gets you right into the hussle and bustle of market trading. This is basically a wholesale fruit, meat and fish market. There are no boutique fasion stalls here. Go by under ground train and get off at Klong Toey or Queen Mother Convention centre and head for the large intersection with a walkway in the shape of... More
