Thailand

Bangkok's indoor dry fish market, known in Thai as Talaat Tha Tian, sells mainly dried and salted seafood products.

 

The market hall is located on Rattanakosin Island and is surrounded by a U-shaped building which on the outside is lined with shop houses (fig.), many of which also sell fish products.
