The Sam Chuk Market is not like any other crowded and busy market in Thailand. Over 100 years old, the market attracts hundreds of visitors despite being far from Bangkok's touristy areas.
The market lies inside an old well-preserved Thai village beside the Tha Jeen River, near Suphan Buri. The entire market is old and ancient, which makes it the perfect haunt for those who want to dig deep into Thai culture and history but want to avoid the crowds that usually overrun other tourist spots. Vendors sell anything from specialty food to souvenirs. Dishes to try include the boiled duck, pork buns, and specialty Thai homemade ice cream.Places nearby:
