Jed Samien Art and Cultural Village
Jed Samien Art and Cultural Village is an historical village with a mixture of many cultures from Thai, Khmer, Surin, Lao Ti and Chinese. The Village is on Mae Klong Riverbank and was an important trading market. Located in Ratchaburi, this market is often associated with arts because Patravadi Theatre has made it a mission to deliver “All about Art” to this place in the evening of every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Nearby is an art garden or Suansilp Baan Din, which is created and run by Patravadi Meechuthon’s prot?g? Manop Meejamras. Those who wish to indulge in the atmosphere can book a stay inside this art orchard too. Lan Pho inside the market is also lively, because children and elderly locals have taken turns staging cultural shows to entertain visitors every now and then. Sweetened radish is a must-buy product at this market. Various food items are also available. Buyers can grasp some and enjoy the food on tables placed right next to the Mae Klong River. The Jed Samian Market is open in the evening every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
