  • Amazing place to buy all sorts of Tais and souvenirs! Bigger covers for couch and bed are around 25USD, smaller ones for the table are around 10USD and the small ones are 2USD.

  • I recommend making your way right to the back for the best Tais. You will know the quality Tais as they are a heavier, more rustic weave with more natural colours. Ask the stall owner to tell you...

  • Nice place, few choice, good local hats
  • Handmade stuff yes, but when you've seen one stall it feels like you've seen the whole market because every stall looks exactly the same and sells exactly the same stuff. So I found this market very boring and not individual or interesting at all, unfortunately.
