Wang Lang Market | ตลาดวังหลัง ***

(map) A short ferry ride away from the Grand Palace, you can find this big day market and small shops next to Siriraj Hospital, Thailand's first hospital.

It's popularly called the "ladies' market" and yes there are lots of cheap and medium-priced fashionable clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery and other accessories, but also other small goods and a variety of delicious foods and snacks.

An additional beauty of the place is that there are many eateries and coffee places at the riverside where you can sit down after your shopping spree and enjoy a view of the life along the river and the Grand Palace and the Wat Arun further down the river.
