It’s Sunday in Bangkok: get on a cab or jump on a local bus bound to Morchit and you’ll get to one of the biggest markets in Asia. Chatuchak is the place for you, wether you’re loking for vintage clothes, food, art or furniture.
It can be very hot since the opening times, so you better grab some fruit or an ice cream and keep yourself cool and hydrated.
This is one of the best places to spend your last days in Thailand, especially if you are in a rush to buy presents to take back at home !
Shopping in such hot environement gets you tired and hungry pretty quickly: try all the different foods on offer. it’s a great way to sample the national cuisine without having to move too much.
Some might chase you shooting soap bubbles..!!
Thais love their pork stuff !!!
Chatuchak market caters both to locals and foreigners, and the prices are quite fixed, so don’t worry too much of being ripped off !
Steamed Fish cakes with lemongrass and chilies.
Steamed seafood dumplings, an example of the strong Chinese influence in Thai cuisine.
The fry-up corner: Fish fingers and chips, spring rolls and mini fried eggs.
When we talk about seafood, Bangkok knows its stuff. A bit on the expensive side, but the quality is astounding !
