Bangkok Noi Market

Local style market

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

This mid-size market near Thonburi rail station isn't on most people's Bangkok itineraries, but it's worth a stop to taste local specialties and revel at the colourful bounty of fresh produce.

Fresh fruit and veggies, chillies of all shapes and sizes, assortments of dried fish that look like works of art and no shortage of open-air meat are all on display here. A healthy variety of prepared foods are also available: snack on khanom krok, grilled coconut fritters, or khanom khai nok krata fried yam dumplings, or take away prepared curries — kaeng paa (jungle curry) and kaeng som (fiery sour southern style curry) are great options to have a meal by the river (Phra Athit Park across the river is a nice place for a picnic lunch).

While the market alone is perhaps not worth the effort to get to, it's a good place to grab a snack before catching a train to Kanchanaburi or as a stop on a longer stroll that could also include Baan Bu bronze-smith village, Baan Luk Chup, the Royal Barges Museum, Phran Nok Market and vintage clothes or more food at Wang Lang Market.

More details
How to get there: To get to Bangkok Noi market, take the Chao Phraya express boat and get off at Wang Lang Pier. Walk up Phran Nok Road (and while walking notice the large hospital on the right — that’s where the King currently resides). Turn right at the intersection with Arun Ammarin. At the next road, turn left and the market starts about 100 metres in on your right side.
