Now they go to Tesco Lotus and Big C and those places are air conditioned and priced nearly the same as the market places or small shops.
Secondly for such a large store the variety of food available seems to be limited, if you wish to choose from 30 brands of Soy and fish sauce or whole rows dedicated to packet noodles, powdered milk then this is the place.
Considering the wealth of Tescos own brand products available in the UK its a great shame that we don't see many of these in Thailand.
