So if you want somewhere super unique! and if you’re a morning person then check out this market. There you’ll find Bangkok at it’s rawest, Bangkok at it’s deepest roots this is a fresh market where they serve up really early morning. I think, they start by about 4 AM here and they’ll probably all be cleared out of here by about 7.30 because other businesses operate out of here operate out of this market. Chefs from local restaurants are here to buy their fresh produce, fresh meat, fresh fish, fresh seafood for the day. So if you want to get up early and see something in Bangkok that is just super local and super authentic then come and check out this fresh market. I don’t even know what the name is but I’ll leave a map link so you can find it.

Come at 5 or 6 AM they’ll be closed up by 7 AM. So and even if a fresh market with people chopping up fish and meat isn’t your thing I still suggest heading out into Bangkok for an early morning walk.
