It’s finally the 2nd day in Bangkok where we can enjoy a full day of non-stop eating and shopping. We started the day by visiting the famous Pratunam Morning Market, which is conveniently located near our hotel. There was lots of street food but we did not dare to try any of those as it seemed to be “not so hygiene” and exposed to the air from the traffic.
Nevertheless there are several clothing and the designs seemrd different from chatuchak.
After the morning Pratunam Morning Market, we went to eat platinum chicken rice. The chicken rice was not anything fantastic and the utensils was quite dirty. People should not come to this place to have their meals. I seriously do not recommend this place.
After our meal, we went off to Khlong Lad Mayom Floating market. This market is around 30 minutes away by grab. Our taxi driver recommended another floating market but that market is 1hr 45 kin drive away. The taxi claim that this floating market is a newly, artificially created market.
Ultimately, I do not disagree that this is a not a proper floating market. Most of the things are done while standing on dry land. You don’t really ride a boat and buy things from other boat.
However, we still rent a Sampan(floating boat). This is a 1 hr ride, where they will drop you at 1 or 2 location (another floating market or orchid garden) and cost 800 baht.
Nevertheless, this place is very big. It is far from being a fake floating market as it has sufficient contents to be proper attraction. We bought and ate so many things here and definitely recommend people to come.
After this place, we took a grab back to Siam area for more shopping.
Turns out there is a Food Republic. They sell decent food. I kind of like their version of fried omelette oyster. It’s very crispy unlike conventional.
We went Talad Rod Fai train night market. This is another beast of its own. This place is very big and has many food store. However, the stall here has a tendency to repeat.
Although this place is called train night market, there is only 1 train. Lol
We ate Mookata. A bit disappointing as charcoal was not strong enough to cook the meat. We need to wait very long just to cook the meat.
We continue to shop more after dinner before we finally call it a day.
So tired from all the walking.
