Klongsuan Market
Situated on the banks of Prawetburirom Canal, Khlong Suan Market lies in two provinces: Tambon Thepparat, Amphoe Ban Pho, Chacoengsao Province and Tambon Khlong Suan, Amphoe Bang Bo, Samut Prakan Province. This traditional market dates back to the reign of King Rama V.

Nakhon Nuang Khet Market
Located in Chachoengsao's Mueang district, the Nakhon Nuang Khet Market boasts nostalgic feel as old wooden structures here have remained very much the same as more than a century ago.
This market is named after a manmade canal, which was dug at the order of King Rama V.
At the time Thais still relied on waterways more than roads, this market saw much thriving trade.
However, as the centre of trade shifted, the settlement along both sides of the canal had deteriorated over time. The Nakhon Nuang Khet Municipality then decided to breathe a new life into this community by conserving its old charming ways of life and their simple, old houses and shops. This settlement is then turned into an attraction drawing in tourists from far and wide.
Tourists can stroll around the community along their ample wooden alleyways, shop for souvenirs and a variety of fares. A great selection of food is also available, some of which are sold from boats that park right by the banks of the canal.
For more information, call the Nakhon Nuang Khet Municipality at 038 814-444.
