Klong Suan Market, Page 1, or 100 year old Market, Chachoengsao Province.

Klong Suan will dazzle you with its old shop houses and stalls selling a variety of tasty traditional foods like tom yam noodles, sweet Thai sausage and pot-stewed duck to desserts made from coconut, quaint old utensils and ancient tin toys.

 

A symbol fitting of the market is a 71 year old coffee shop, Pae Lee, laid out with a few single round tables and stools. The shop takes its name from its owner, a genial elderly person with a ready smile for his patrons.

 

The most touching aspect of this community,  is not the ambience nor the well-maintained buildings or their architecture, but it is the residents' traditional way of life that remains largely untouched by the tides of time.

 

Khlong Prawet Burirom ( Khlong Phra Khanong ) was one of the great arterial waterways of the pre-automobile era in Thailand. It runs from The Chao Phraya River at Khlong Toei near Bangkok's Port, Eastwards to the Bang Phakong River near Chachoengsao, a distance of some 55 km.

 

It is still used by boat services, but only from Phra Khanong Bridge on Sukhumvit Road to Srinakharin Rd. Passage further east is blocked by the water gates near Prawet.
