Unlike Klong Toey Market which is massive, dirty, and hectic, Or Tor Kor Market is organized, clean, and you don’t have to worry about getting hit by motorbikes or porters.

The market is known throughout Bangkok as the upscale grocer, a wet market where everything is of utmost quality. Fruits, vegetables, meat and seafood are premium.

One of the biggest bonuses of Or Tor Kor Market is that there’s a hawker food court packed with a marvelous selection of ready to eat Thai food. The stink beans are wonderful!

Did I mention the durian? It’s so creamy it tastes like sweet sweet butter!
