Sam Chuk Market – Supun Buri – Part 4

For our final stop today we visit Sam Chuk Market which is a 100-year-old traditional water market that has remained an antique community while being surrounded by an evolution of modern influences.

This Chinese community and old-fashioned market, complete with wooden shop houses, has retained its authentic Thai style, dating from a century ago. Visitors can explore the traditional shops, including a photography store that continues to use a century-old camera, a herbal drugstore, or enjoy tasting local sweets and sipping old-fashioned local-style coffee by the river. A three-story building, now transformed into a museum, displays photos from the days of yesteryear, taking visitors back to a bygone era.
