Samchuk 100 Years Market, Suphanburi
Sam Chuk Market is a market that whenever I come, I feel like I was a kid. I am from Sena District, Ayutthaya. I have a relative next to my grandmother who works as a knife forger in Ban Pan Market. So I went to the market regularly. The Baan Pan Market when I was a kid was very similar to the Sam Chuk Market. But it feels like it's bigger than Sam Chuk Market. Because Ban Pan Market is an important passenger port to Bangkok.
But later, Ban Pan Market was destroyed by a fire. In the middle of the night, I was with my grandmother ten kilometers away. Saw a red fire burning in the sky The sound of fire trucks and the silane lights from fire trucks in other provinces running along every road heading towards the location of the fire at Ban Pan Market in the middle of that night. Because it is a big market and most of the buildings are made of wood. Like all Sam Chuk markets Therefore, wood is a good fuel. The next morning, Ban Pan Market was only a pile of ashes. Thinking about it, I can't help but regret it. Later, the Ban Pan market changed rapidly. Almost all of them were replaced by four-story buildings. The ferry terminal was changed to a bus terminal for routes to Bangkok, Pathum, Nonthaburi, Suphan and Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province.
