Wear a sweater as it is cold in the mornings. Rather clean & organised market. You'll get to see how the locals do their marketing & what sort of produce that is available. Lots of unusual veg & some handicraft is available too. Some items such as shawls & tshirts are cheaper than the night market, limited choices though. You... More

Its a real market, not a tourist scam, junk market like the Night market at evening. I have seen a lots of market in Asia, but it is one of the best. Those colours and smells. Every kind of vegetable, fruit, meat, fish and many other intresting local farm produce. And of course, you can eat on the spot, because... More

I love this little morning market that is open from 5am until 10am, it has everything to offer to local people for their daily meal shopping. Even if you didn't want to buy anything, a window shopping was fine. My son and i love it we love to go on the weekend, then we continue our morning by fish feeding... More

Take some time to have a good look through here. You will find some pretty interesting things, some of them you may not have seen before. Most of this market is a fresh market (food) but there are other things on offer also. Really worth a look.

Not really a tourist market especially if you are squeamish. Looking at the fresh fish is ok but the butchers section with no form of hygiene is testing if you have never experienced it before. Only a small area compared to the night market which is huge.

Go early, and be prepared to see some things you may not see even in other Southeast Asian markets, such as live and skinned moles, as the mountain tribal peoples living in the area have an unusual ancient life style. If you are adverse to creepy crawlies, you may want to shade your eyes. The market itself is surprising clean... More

Amongst all the local fruits and vegetables there was some weird and interesting creepy crawlies and rather sadly, two small distressed owls out in the bright sunshine in very tiny bamboo cages. We were very tempted to buy them and set them free but figured in the long run it would encourage the locals to catch more. Found a lovely... More

A surprisingly narrow and small market. There were some odd things in this market ... alive or just killed. I tried not to look too closely some of the time. Mostly I went to see if we could get some bananas for the road and to see what's in season locally. It's like late July here ... agriculture-wise. Tiny round... More
