Despite this, in countries like Thailand, you can find Buddha figures carved out of wood, images of the spectacular temples of Angkor, clothes with bright colors and bright, lucky charms, fabrics, paintings, etc . The Old Market area is not too bright at night except for the area of ​​pubs and restaurants where the neon lights are so bright.
