You can find clothes, shoes and fashion accessories at low prices with wholesale purchase of 3 items and above. However, you can negotiate for single item purchase at higher price. If you can’t speak Thai, you can always use the calculator to indicate your offer.
There are food stalls in between narrow alleys and lanes and always hydrate yourself as it can be hot and stuff on a hot day.
