SAMCHUK MARKET SUPHAN BURI THAILAND

SAMCHUK MARKET, SUPHAN BURI THAILAND

   Appreciate this hundred-year-old market, known as a living museum.
Indulge you stomach and your mind by exploring this ancient market in Samchuk district. The atmosphere of the old Thai ways of life still awaits your visit. Nowadays, Samchuk market is not only a tourist attraction with stories to tell, but also the link between Suphanburi from the past to the present.

Samchuk Market
   The traditional coffee cafe in the wooden townhouse in the corner remains people’s favourite meeting point just as before. Samchuk market has welcomed an innumerable number of visitors, as it is ranked the province’s top cultural tourist attraction. The market is able to retell the history that binds the past of Suphanburi to people of the current generation.

Coffee Cafe @ Samchuk Marker
   If you have a chance to walk along the narrow lanes of wooden houses and old buildings, imagine how these residential area and shopping arcade were like during their heyday. The ancient Chinese community has been a prominent trading area in Suphanburi since the reign of King Rama V, and no matter how long the time goes by, everything stays the same as it used to be.

Samchuk Market
   The great charm of Samchuk market includes not only the nostalgic atmosphere – for instance coffee shops, barbers, photo studios, or vintage zinc toys from childhood – but also the attachment and love towards this community. The local people work hand-in-hand to preserve the traditional way of life. Importantly, the fact that they have modified Samchuk market to a living museum and allow the young to explore their ancestors’ way of life is regarded as a praiseworthy achievement.

THAILAND RECOMMEND @ Samchuk Market

   If you go to Samchuk market, Suphan Buri I recommend "Rice In A Lotus leaf" It contains glutinous rice filled with chicken, Chinese mushrooms, Chinese sausage, scallions and sometimes dried shrimp.The ball of rice is then wrapped in a dried lotus leaf and steamed.I think it very delicious.
