Now there are just 5 fruit stands in the Bangrak area. Fruits are always popular though! It takes hard work and patience, but I run my business with honesty, selling good quality fruits to the customers.

I have both Thai and Foreigners come here to buy fruit.  The foreigners love to come taste all the exotic fruits they don’t get at home!
