Shopping at the Klong Suan 100 year Market in Samut Prakan

Klong Suan 100 year Market in Samut Prakan, Thailand

Reposting from 2016. 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 1 hr 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. 

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
