A lot of fake amulets. Some stalls even sell Amulets by the kilos. Not a place for people with little knowledge about amulets, to go. Good place for looking at religious artifacts.

One of the intriguing market scenes in Bangkok is the Ta Prachan amulet market that can be found on Na Phra That Road and nearby alleys near the Wat Mahathat temple. Here you can find a make-shift market with locals displaying many religious, iconic and symbolic amulets. We have watched this scene with interest during many past trips to Bangkok.... More

Could this be the place to find superstition, corruption, and wild sex? Perhaps, if you are a believer in the power of Buddhist amulets.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
