Gong Khong Market (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
The Gong Khong Market ows its name by the phrase “bend low” (gong khong in Thai), in order for people to see what’s on sale. Everything on sale is mostly placed on the floor or at the height of Your knees, so You literally have to bend to see what is being offered. You can find fresh organic fruits and vegetables without any chemical additions, clay figurines, ceramics, garden ornaments, food and desserts at affordable prices. Souvenirs are hand-made and the market is a credible display of life in Thailand. Namely, the market is built in the old style and the salesmen and saleswomen are mostly locals who have been selling and making their goods for years and years.
