1st day here, met up with a new friend I made on the flight over. This market is massive. 15,000 stalls! Usual duplicate vendors flogging the staple tshirts etc, but there are sections that cater to the art collector, fashion gurus, you name it. I came across a second hand bookstore that was huge and I’m putting aside another day to visit so I can throw my eyes over everything they have, many old books that would not be available in the west. What else? Oh yeah..the food! Wow, caught the beautiful fragrance of lemongrass to see a very old lady with her traditional Thai kitchen, Pad Thai etc for a couple of dollars and it’s as authentic and as fresh as you could get it. A must visit whilst you are in Bangkok.
