Shopping at the Klong Suan 100 year Market in Samut Prakan

Klong Suan 100 year Market in Samut Prakan, Thailand

We made a day trip to "Klong Suan 100 year Market" located along Prawetburirom Canal on the border of Chachonsao and Samut Prakan province. But only about 1hr drive from Bangkok. This more as 100 years old market might be a bit running on tourists (mostly Thai) but it still has his original charm of an old Chinese market. There are many small shops selling the kind of things you do not find at the 7/11 or BigC. And of course some restaurants and a 75-years old coffee-shop selling traditional Thai coffee. There even is a barber-shop and of course a gold-shop. You can also take the wooden bridge to the other side and visit the temple there. It was a nice day out and we will come back when it is better weather as it was a bit raining today. See Klong-suan-100-year-market
