Formerly notorious as a ‘jungle market’ Thung Kwiang’s cleaned up its act and concentrates on local produce and One Tambon One Product items rather than endangered wildlife. So you’ll find plenty of fried insects, north Thai chilli dips, sausages, pork scratchings and so on as well as several coffee shops serving north Thai brews. There are simple restaurants for a lunch break so this is definitely worth a stop and a wander.
