The Talat Phlu area: a place of interest

Talat Phlu (ตลาดพลู) is an old area in Thonburi on the western bank of the Chaopraya River along the Bangkok Yai canal (บางกอกให่ญ).

In Thai language “Talat” (ตลาด) means “market” and “Phlu” (พลู) means betel. 

This name comes from the fact that people used to cultivate betel in the area and that there was a big betel market.

It is now famous for its labyrinth of small streets that run around the canal, its lovely temples such as Wat Khun Chan (วัดขุนจันทร์) or Wat Pak Nam (วัดปากน้ำ), its traditional wooden houses as well as its flea market and its delicious street food.

The area is worth a visit and its train station can be a point of departure for the small fishing port of Maha Chai and the Mae Klong Market (“Train Market”).
