A trip to Bangkok is never completed without shopping at one of the world's largest weekend markets, Chatuchak Weekend Market (Jatujak Market). A shopping heaven...Uniting everything buyable
From picking up some vintage souvenirs for friends back home
Or are you a fashionista? This is definitely a fashion pool to dive in!
Trendy clothing along the streets....
Thematic booths that you might have no idea what are they selling but to go in and check it out!
If not are not a shopaholic,fret not! You can hunt for drinks and street vendors selling delicious and perhaps exotic local delicacies that may surprise your taste bud. For us, we didn't really keen to shop, thus we would like to explore more on the local food.
Kids catching some sleep while the parents (vendors) are busy trading.
According to the lady, this is octopus fish boe.We reckoned is fish stomach. We go tempted to try it.
Hmmmpp....I still can't figure out where is the octopus.
One of the common street food in Thai that looks like pork balls. Well, it is better known as the Thai Fermented Sausage(Sai Krok Isan)
For what i knew, grilling is by far the best cooking method. I can't agree more with that. Need a kick for the taste bud? Munch together with the fiery cili padi!
A big pot of fragrant curry....
Only spotted chicken feet and lots of fish balls..LOL!
In another stainless steel pot...chunks of pig blood.
Which makes a plate of flavorful noodles.
Choose your own condiments as suggested by the locals. The types of veges...
Anyone can enlighten me on what is the name of this dish...It's delicious!!
Weather is getting hotter by noon time. You just have to keep looking for some cooling drinks or desserts.
You can never miss the rich and creamy Thai Coconut Ice Cream.
Side condiments included : Peanuts, corn, kidney beans and of course my fav, Thai glutinous rice. Heavenly!
It's a sin not to eat it while you are here!
