Pahurat cloth market

Fabric and more fabric

What we say: 2.5 stars

While modern (and prosperous) Indian-Thais have largely moved away from this maze of alleys, this is still the cultural heart of the Indian diaspora in Thailand.

The lanes are filled with bolts of fabrics for sale, some made in Thailand but most woven in India, as well as ready-to-wear pieces and more notions than anyone could ever know what to do with.

It’s best in the morning as everything just starts getting going — after an ice coffee and samosas from a street cart.

Close by is the Gurudwara Siri Guru Singh Saba, the place of worship for most Sikhs in Bangkok.
