Talad Bang Nam Pheung

This was our second time at Talad Nam Bang Nam Pheung as the first time I run out of battery and could only take three photos (note to myself: make sure your battery is full). This market is located just south of central Bangkok in an area known as Phra Pradaeng, Bangkok’s green lung, it is a surprisingly untouched area still covered with vegetation despite being so close to the city.
It is only 20 minutes from our house by Express Way so it makes it easy, even to make a last minute decision. There are different entrances to the market depending on which direction you arrive.

We arrived early in the morning and had breakfast, Thai coffee and chocolate cake for me, and noodles for the rest of the family. The chocolate cake sold at Little Ant is wonderful and I had been looking forward to it, not too sweet and only 35 baht a piece. We sat on the floor in the small tables provided looking at people walking by, a nice way of starting the day.

The market is surrounded by lush forest and tropical greenery. At some points the paths are elevated above water, it has a wonderful atmosphere that makes you feel that you are far away from the big city. This market is mainly visited by Thais, though I noticed some foreign tourists this time.

You can find all kind of things to buy: becoming more popular are the cloths made of Thai traditional fabric (I did not see these last time). And what cannot miss is the food. There is so much food available. Gac fruit, which I had never seen before, is very popular at Bang Nam Pheung. Gac fruit juice is also for sale.spanish avarcas menorquinas
For me, one of the highlights of the market is the old traditional wooden house where you can get traditional sweets and drinks. It is a beautiful place, nicely decorated surrounded by a garden, you can take a lot of interesting photos and sit and relax looking at people go by.
Other things you can do is have your fortune told, kids can do some painting or listen to the traditional folk music that some spontaneous artist provide at the back of the market surrounded by trees. spanish leather menorquins
And after wandering around it was time for lunch. We went back to where we had had breakfast in the morning and had some papaya salad, grilled chicken and satay, everything delicious and I have to say I was impressed with the service.
There is also small restaurant with a kind of a patio in the middle if you prefer not to sit on the floor.

We had a lot of fun, all of it will make a very enjoyable day for the whole family!
