We ate at the restaurant in the corner which the red colour scheme. Our host was very nice and accommodating. The food was delicious, I had green curry with rice (not so spicy). The bill was really cheap to boot.

An interesting food market selling veg, fruit, fish and meat. This is the place locals go to buy their produce. It is worth taking an hour out for a stroll around and buy like a local. I was there to get out of the monsoon...More
