After praying at Erawan shine, I got on BTS from Siam station. And I headed for the north. Before too long, I arrived at Mo Chit station. This station was one of the nearest stations to Chatuchak Market. Yes. It was my destination.

The market was vast and one of the major tourist destinations in Bangkok. So I ran into a long line of visitors soon after I came out of the station. The line proceeded at a slow pace. And I felt turned off before I reached the market.

However, the inside was less crowded than the outside. The visitors seemed to be scattering after entering. Alternatively, enormous shops were crammed on the site. The shop in this photo was one of them. Many clothes were displayed in the shop. And I found a shop clerk sitting there. Although there were many shoppers in this market, not so many people came to this shop to buy. The shop clerk seemed to have nothing to do.
