One of the most important event of the day in Khanom is a local market. Here, you can see the essence of Thailand as it is. The variety of products available to buy here is enormous. Therefore, the place is so popular among local people and tourists as well. Apart of shopping the market is a popular place for meetings and socialising. Here, on this photo, I am presenting one of most common fish in waters of Gulf of Thailand – Barracuda.
