Last May my husband and I took a two-week trip to Southeast Asia. This has been on my travel wishlist for a long time! We booked five days each in Bangkok, the southern Thailand island Koh Lanta, and Singapore. The whole trip was fantastic. Honestly, there was nothing more I could have asked for. I had so much fun exploring the sights, the food and meeting up with friends that I haven’t seen in over ten years.
In this post, I’m going to highlight some of our awesome food adventures in Bangkok. I will post the other two locations in part 2 and 3. Also, please note this post is pretty image/video heavy so it may take a couple minutes to load everything. I hope you enjoy!
On Saturday, we decided to head to the one of the world’s largest weekend markets, Chatuchak Market (also know as JJ Market). All I can say is WOW! Not only did this market have an enormous selection of food but you can buy anything else your heart desires. From kitchen gadgets to furniture, to clothing & accessories, to pets. Seriously this is a one stop shop for everything. If planning a visit, I’d give yourself several hours to explore the entire market. Here are some of the food options we landed on. Everything was so fresh and delicious!
Later that evening we met up with a good friend that I hadn’t seen in 10 years. She took my husband and me to this cute restaurant themed after the gold mine era called, Tales of Gold Mine.
One of the coolest experiences we had while on this tour was getting to eat Pad Thai, made fresh by a canal vendor. Because this town is so far north and along a canal, one of the main means of transportation is by boat. We saw many vendors on the water selling snacks, toilet paper, and other household items as well as this woman making food on her boat.
