Reviews of the Teprasit night market
The market is gigantic. One evening will not be enough to see everything, it will take several days. I decided to try Thai food and found a wonderful local fish with some kind of sauce. It’s very tasty, the memory will last a long time.
The night market on Theprasit is a colorful world of its own and a must-see in Pattaya. The prices of goods are low. That’s good, but we came to see this wonder of the world – a real Oriental market in the Chinese manner.
A lot of great photos and videos were taken at the night market. Especially fond of the local food for every taste – it is truly a masterpiece. The clothes and shoes are not bad, you can also find them in Russia, but they are noticeably cheaper here.
