Thewet Fish Market

2 1 Krung Kasem Rd, Khwaeng Wat Sam Phraya, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand

Thewet is known for its bustling vegetable market, however few tourists ever venture deep within the wet market buttressing the river. This is a great place to sample local foods and stock up on hard-to-find ingredients. Plan on doing a bit of shopping and then impressing your friends with hoy lai pad prik (a stir-fry dish of baby clams, chili sauce, and turmeric), kuay teow neua Kobe (Kobe beef noodle soup), or quick-to-prepare barbecue fish. Even I am able to cook wonders after a visit to Thewet. I’ve been to Bangkok a half a dozen times over the last couple of years and on each trip I set aside time to visit Thewet Market.
