Bangkok Night Market
Somehow we let a few days slip by on Koh Lanta, and spent a quiet new year on the beach. Then we finally got back in gear and headed to Bangkok.
We have heard it was crazy and noisy, but we don’t think so. Bangkok is quite easy to travel around. With a multitude of modern rail options and a go-with-the-flow bus system, we could always reach our destination. Yes it’s hot and humid, but there are so many malls and convenience stores everywhere where you can pop in and get a blast of AC.
There is always something tasty and cheap wherever you go, so you never have to worry about getting hungry. This is very important! Bangkok is all about food, and it’s delicious!
We visited some night markets crammed with goodies, edible and not. Don’t listen to people when they say Americans eat a lot and are too consumerist - in my experience Asians own these things. Night markets are all about teh gluttony and materialism! Grilled meat on a stick! Squid on a stick! Sausage on a stick! Fishballs on a stick! Noodles. Pancakes, waffles. Dumplings, steamed buns. Noodles. Fried chicken. FRIED PORK FAT! Fruit smoothies and supersweet ice tea galore. And noodles. And after you’re done stuffing your face you can shop for piles of cheap iPhone cases, blingy accessories, fake handbags, shoes, makeup, hippie pants and hipster shirts, knick-knacks, plastic things. Yes, you really do need an iPhone case with rubber bunny ears and a furry tail. And this doesn’t happen once a year at some special overpriced festival like in America, this happens EVERY every night. I love night markets!
