If you are catching your flight from Suvarnabumi and have 2-3 hours to spare, this would be worth your while. There is a quaint village beside the canal with shops and cafes lining the waterway. It will take you back in time. Go after 12 noon and before 7pm. Hua Takhe is crocodile head in Thai.

Stayed in a hotel close to Lat Krabang road and took a taxi to the market. Plenty of everything in this morningmarket and mostly thaipeople. We walked back along Lat Krabang road and had lunch in a great place on the right side. Only thai,menu and visitors and excellent food! On the way back there was an eveningmarket.

A slice of old Bangkok
Nov 2016 • Friends
Situated on the Klong, Hua Ta Khe (Croc Head) Market is a slice of Bangkok past. Old wooden buildings right on the edge of the klong. Interesting for a Photo Walk (which is why I went [and got some great photos of the area], not so much for shopping. Great cafe right at the end before the bridge. Do go over the bridge and check out the Wall Murals.

a little time travel

It is a small settling of more than 100 years turned into a new tourist attraction, not quite established yet but it is for such reason it has more appeal. There is no quick way to get there except a taxi or assisted local transport. But once you are there - it is kind of walk a little, sit (in a restaurant) kind of cycles - to watch the really interesting old (a little over 100 years) wood houses - and how they live (living room that is - for visit their bedrooms - possible - if you ask nicely, they are willing and pretty happy to show you). Overall you can get a good sense of how the local live through out the years. No fancy big restaurant here, simple home type of cooking or common noodle shops, and of course the coffee shops (run by art students of the nearby university) - so it is certain level of chic - the Thai style. Not a bad place to spend a day - especially those who in love with people & street photography.

Busy local fresh market, good for a strow
Dec 2015 • Solo
For those who find nothing to do around Suvarnabhumi airport area and wish for an hour walk in the morning, I recommend to check out this local fresh market.

Starting from a very early morning untillgetting quiet around nine or ten o'clock, everyday you will see hundreds of things that small shops and stalls are selling. Some only laid their back garden stuffs on a piece of cloth. Several kinds of herb and vegetables in season, fruits and dried shrimp freshly display on the day. There are few corners that you can sit and enjoy hot noodle, rice congee, skrewing pork & sticky rice...common breakfast for Thais...finishing with a cup of coffee with condensed milk (try to ask if you don't like to put it).

Foodies may wish to walk inside the market hall to see freshly press coconut milk, different kind of curry pastes, preserved bamboo shoot, pickel, fish sauce, kapi (shrip paste) etc.

The area of this market starts from Lat Krabang road and end at the canal 'Pravet Buri Rom'. At the back of this market (across the canel towards the north), sitting quietly is a long row of old wooden shophouses that once was busy when people still commuted by boat.
