Chachoengsao, one of the ancient towns nationwide, which is surrounded by the Bang Pakong River. This province is not far from Bangkok, taking about an hour and a half to get there. If you are feeling bored staying in the big city, here might be your choice to refresh and recharge your energy.
Travel Like a Local today will take you on a tour of a hidden and historic market in the town called Talad Subsin Tha Kai or Tha Kai (This place is over a hundred years old). YOU SHOULD VISIT BEFORE IT GETS TOO BUSY!
Tha Khai Highlights:
- Highly recommend trying the local food, such as Boiled Chicken with Rice, at Paa Lek Restaurant - a secret recipe passed down from generation to generation (Visit before the afternoon, as it sells out quickly), Tom Yum Goong - Thailand’s signature spicy soup, Braised Beef noodles with thick soup, Fermented Pork and Crispy Rice Salad, and local dessert like Lod Chong. The market also offers a wide range of local food menus, guaranteed to be fresh and delicious.
- Capture Insta-worthy street art around the market. Snap and share it with your friends to show how cool the place is, and yes! you got there before anyone else.
- The market is centrally located, just a minute's walk from the river. It's quite convenient for exploring and sightseeing in the province by walk. (There's plenty of parking, so feel free to drive your private car without worry.)
