    A big border commercial place for Thai and Cambodian where you can find products and food passed from Cambodia.It's open 7.00AM-5.00PM.,every day.Originally,the border market used to located in Cambodia 's side called Poi Pet Market. When the war happened at that area the market was down,after that it turned to be a casino area and the market was shifted to the present area where used to be a storehouse before export to Cambodia in the past time.
    Note :
    1.there're numerous both adult& kid beggars , avoid to give them anythings ,cuase when you give a big group of beggars 'll come to you and ask for them.
    2. Pick pocket is a big problem here. Keep your money at the safest place.

    What to buy: You can find so many things here, such as second hand clothes and bags , dried fish fron Tonle Sap in Cambodia, products from China and weaving products. For me , it 's a heaven for second hand clothes and bags, but you need to check and discount for the reasonable price.

  • Nice people and Farang friendly

    I visited several villages from Taphraya down to Aranyaprathet (Aran is short name) and everyone always friendly. Usual "over pricing" when Farang's involved, which irritates me but as long as its not too much, I am happy to pay over the odds as their poor people for the most part. Friendly people and Farang's liked (especially $$$$)I STRONGLY...
