Muang Ya 100 Years Market

Although the name of the market sounds like an old market but it just opened this year. "Muang Ya 100 Years market" is a night market, very busy in the evening. The market itself is quite new but some old houses in the market and the area which is very old called "Sawai Rieang", that makes the name of the market. I've tried many foods there, so many choices and quite delicious. The day I took these pictues I've just been there too early so it's still quiet. The market is located on Mukkramontri street, the parking area is behind the market.

Mae Cham Pa Restaurant

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who like Thai Food. All dishes we ordered were so excellent and the atmosphere was so nice in the evening, we love the table on the second floor in the wooden Thai house. Mae Cham Pa Restaurant is located on small street, around 30m off from Mittraprap Highway, opposite Save One night market.


Nong Prue - Tambon Pho Klang

Nong Prue - Tambon Pho Klang or Pho Klang Sub-District is located in Muang District. It's the area that I've never been to even it is so close to downtown. I was driving out from Chai Narong City Gate and here's the area scene after I keep driving for awhile. It gave me a suburb feel. I ended up driving pass through Surathampitak Military Camp.
