  • If you're traveller not a tourist, this place is a must visit. Not the typical tourist market catering towards foreigners, Wang Lang market is geared towards locals. Loads of good street food, snacks and other clothing and curios are also on offer at prices which are generally lower than central Bangkok. It also has a great local atmosphere as you walk through the narrow streets.
