Indochine Market

Approach it with a sense of humour

What we say: 2.5 stars

If you have ever wanted to buy a plastic bonsai tree, a broken compass, a sock with Michael Jackson's face on it, a Thai speaking calculator, some broken ceramics or a six-foot high plastic thermometer, then this is the place to pick up a bargain.

Although the market is mostly filled with junk, you can score quality Lao coffee and tea, and products like handmade baskets and Asian cookware can be found in the many shops that line the road across from the market for half of what you'd pay in Bangkok.

Even if you're not a shopper, the market is a pleasant experience as there are no pushy salesmen and everyone seems friendly. The market is located right on the river below ground with several easily found entrances.

After a breeze through Indochine, take a stroll along the riverside promenade. Open daily early morning until around 16:00.
