Markets in Thailand

Thailand’s markets offer both a slice of real Thai life and access to some real Thai bargains!
 

Must see

Thailand’s markets are legendary, not simply because they are places to find cheap gifts for people back home, but because they are also a slice of the real Thailand. Markets are not just there for the tourists, they are focal points for the various communities that make up the kingdom. You will see the ‘real deal’ in a market – real people going about their daily lives rather than some contrived scene created for the tourists!  If you enjoy pottering around markets and hunting bargains, Thailand's markets are ideal for you.

If you are in Thailand for a limited period you should consider some of the country's leading markets.
