Pahurat Market | ตลาดพาหุรัด (Little India) **

(map) Home or at least the shopping area for the local Indian (mainly Sikh) community is this market close to Chinatown. Lots and lots of fabric, Indian stuff, delicious food starting from cheap and simple samosas to complete meals, herbs, sweets, music, incense, and jewellery.

Some of the original market is still there, but the ugly India Emporium shopping mall has replaced at least part of it. The cosy atmosphere has gone but the goods are still the same and cheap as always. [Area inside Pahurat Road, Chakphet Road and Triphet Road; day market]
