If you missed on buying something in a particular stall, chances are you will never going to find it again, as if you are right in the middle of a clothes maze.

However, if you enjoy shopping, do slow down the pace and observe the market, you will be surprised that it is immersion on the local way of life in Bangkok. Vendors are working on sewing machines, packing and unpacking stuff, pushing carting trolleys up and down.
