Well-known for its tasty dishes and reasonable prices, the restaurant is decorated in a simple style accented with wide windows to allow river views. Here we recommend ordering the fried river fish with garlic and pepper, freshwater snails in red curry, spicy stir-fried featherback fish and herbs, and hot and spicy soup with Siam Redtail catfish. There is also a coffee corner to further refresh with a cup of great coffee.

The family-run business has been passed down through several generations and draws in both regular local customers and visitors. The shop contains two units of a row house. Many people come in and out all day. For this meal, we try the crispy wonton pad thai, raddna (crispy wontons in thick sauce), and pad see ew with crispy noodles (stir-fried crispy noodles in soy sauce). We realise in our first bites that only one dish is not enough – you’ll want more! The dishes are all very delicious and the price is very cheap, starting from 35 baht.

9. Royal Forest Department Centenary Arboretum (Phaisali)

After a drive out of town, it is time to exercise by exploring caves and hiking along a nature study trail at the Royal Forest Department Centenary Arboretum (Phaisali), also known as the Royal Forest Department Centenary Arboretum (Sobsombon). It is a large forest with an area of more than 1,465 rai where tourists can hike, explore caves, or stay overnight.

Today, we choose to go on a guided hike. There are two options – a short-distance hiking trail and a long-distance hiking trail. The option you choose depends on your energy! The staff guide us along the trail sharing information about the importance of the forest, It’s a pity that during the dry season there is only a little water at the waterfall, but the arboretum guides tell us that during the rainy season the waterfall is very beautiful. Honestly, after a 2-hour walk, we’re pretty exhausted but also filled with joy after being out in nature.

15. Talad Chao Kha

The last shop we stop in for this trip is Talad Chao Kha, which is an old school Riverside market on the Ping River bank. The idea of the market is to recreate the ancient markets in the reign of King Rama V. The vendors are all in charming traditional Thai dress and always say “Chao Kha”, to agree to or approve of something, at the end of their sentences. Every vendor has a friendly smile and shops sell their products in natural packaging. Lots of desserts using ancient recipes and handmade products are sold when dusk falls. Families can join together for a picnic and enjoy live music. The atmosphere and memories created here are so lovely!

 

Address : The market is located in front of Wat Khao Din Tai, Kao Liao District, Nakhon Sawan.

Opening time : The market is open only on Sundays from 14.00-10.00 PM.
