Seemingly, there were many people who were a little bit hungry. The food stall selling snacks and sweets were busy. Yet not so many people seemed to be hungry. The eating place in the market was not so crowded. There were many tables in it. However, not all the seats were occupied. And the customers were having lunch in the tranquil atmosphere. Maybe it was too early to have lunch. Anyway, it was hard to believe it was so crowded around the entrance of the market.
This Chatuchak Market was moved to this place in 1982. Therefore, the market seemed not to be old and well organized. I couldn't feel a messy atmosphere during walking around. I felt short on the fun to walk around. After all, I preferred to explore the old-fashioned market which I had to move while I stepped on the scattered shells of coconut.
