This market is located just south of the old city along Wua Lai Road (ถนนวัวลาย).
You will be able to find bags, clothing, drinks, street foods, local handicraft, pottery, paintings, souvenirs.
This place just goes on and on and may seem never ending. If this is your first time set aside at least 3 hours
18:00 is the optimal time to come here as at 17:00 they are just setting up and at 21:00 it can get super crowded.

This market is located on the eastern side of the old city stating at the Tha Phae Gate(ประตูท่าแพ) .
