Visited after day away in Bang Saen so was already full from beach front food. However the atmosphere in the market here is great. All is fresh, uniquely prepared and very tasty.

It's fish market that located in Chonburi province. It's about 30-45 min from Bangkok. The market open in only Saturday in evening. It's like a normal night market in Thailand but there're a lot of seafood here. The merchant is local people in Chonburi. The view is great. I prefer sunset time. It's very beautiful. And It suit with BEER!!

First real beach on coast from Bangkok . can be very crowded.
Feb 2017
Bang Saen beach is just about t5he closest beach to Bkk - less than an hour using the new motorway spur. this means on public holidays and week-ends it is extremely popular with Bangkokians for a night or 2 away.
the beach is pretty much filled with deck chairs and umbrellas where visitors sit and sea fried rice with seafood and drink cheap whiskey.. As they seem only to rent out yhe chairs fora day, this can be an expensive place to eat.
the send on the beach is quite good, fine etc., but the water can get very polluted - depending on winds and tides - not recommended for swimming. There are the usual banana-boats and the occasional jetski.
The southernmost end of the beach it not blighted by deckchair and umbrellas and the Northern end has pavilions and restaurants. They also stage music concerts and night markets there.This is a long beach - several kilometres so walking from one end to the other is only for the most determined of walkers.
the traffic on beach road can get very congested and occasionally the roads are blocked off - Speed week sees the town converted to a race track and bike week sees about 20,000 bikes of all sizes descend on the town - centred around one noisy week-end.
There is a university at bang Saen and there is a part of the town that caters for the students - it isn't very rowdy, but there are a few drinking/music bars.
if you go in the week, you will have a good choice of accommodation from Thai dormitory style to 4star hotels.

Chose the Wrong Day
May 2016 • Friends
Tha Ruea Phli Fish Market mainly operates on the weekends, and the weekday that we visited there was not much activity.

It was still interesting, however, to see the fishing piers and the colourful Thai fishing boats.

And a group of fishermen were bushy knotting together strips of canvas, which they formed into large bundles. These, they told us, would be used to grow mussels.

By the time I revisit Tha Ruea Phli Fish Market the mussels might just be ready for cooking.

Great place to taste fresh seafood
Feb 2016 • Family
The market is for food lovers. It is full of food stalls, having various kinds of seafood available, including fish, prawns, crabs, scallops. The seafood is freshly prepared and available in many ways of cooking like boiling, grilling or frying. When you have already bought the food, there are plenty of tables prepared for travellers to eat.

In February 2016, I visited the market and had several kinds of dishes. One of those was boiled crabs. The crab was fresh and the seller cracked down its shell in order for me to eat more easily. Another one was spicy shrimp cake. Normally you can find spicy fish cake to eat in Thailand, but the one sold here was unique because of its texture. It was brushed with egg yolks and bread crumbs before being deep fried. The taste was still in my mind. However, the most impressive thing was grilled shrimps. They were made fresh at the food stall and they were still hot even though I went to buy some more food later.

I hope my review would help you consider this place to visit and have a great time travelling in Thailand.
