Good place to buy a suitcase when you buy too much stuff an need an upgrade (shops along the main road) Cheapest I've seen in Bangkok for them 😉 A lot of clothes there, seems to be where more Thais go. Certainly somewhere to check out to fulfill your shopping needs. Just be sure to haggle, dont accept that first price that is magically summoned on their mysterious calculators. 😂

if you want to buy cheap clothes and everything, you can visit here. you can also bargaining and ask for cheapest price. but sometimes the product qualities are not so good. you must check it by yourself to choose just good quality product.

There's a mixture of clothes, bags, and souvenirs in this market and the prices aren't as high as other famous markets. Most shops I visited actually had reasonable prices and they're willing to give discounts if you buy more. The stalls seem to change throughout the day too so the clothes you saw in the morning might not be there during the evening.
