Take your time and stroll through the local fresh market which is very interesting to see. Continue to the train station and watch the people how they enter and exit the train, after a look on the statue in the middle of the big roundabout you could visit e.g. the Princess Mother Memorial Park in the north next to the...

BTS bring you a station which is 15 minutes away from the big circle with large Taksin statue at the center. Good local atmosphere especially at the market on the way to the circle and the railway terminal.
