Shop – eat – repeat

Bangkok market tips

The ever bustling capital of Thailand has turned into a second home for me, but the city is developing and changing so fast, so there’s always something new to discover (as can be seen here too). The Chatuchak Weekend Market has been an attraction for years, but nearby JJ Green Night Market has become very popular recently with its cool bars and vintage shops (hipster alarm!). Generally, Bangkok feels like a giant market in itself – there’s food and all kinds of useful and useless things to buy everywhere at any time. There’s so much to eat, see and do that it never bores me. The exploring never ends!

Food courts are such exciting places. This one at Chatuchak is no exception!

    I usually to go to Chatuchak, but that night market sounds really nice! What I like the most about markets in Bangkok is all the food stalls serving yummy, inexpensive food:)
