We walked back the way we had taken to the Emporium but this time we climbed the stairs to the Sky Train station. A few minutes of disorientation ensured because the Thai self-operated token vending machines would not accept our Baht notes and we had to change them at the counter for loose change to get the job done. We took a train to Chit Lom station and walked to Pratunam Market as this being a week-day the famous Chatuchak was closed. We explored streets lined with stores on one side and street vendors/hawkers on the other and ended up buying a few items of comfort-wear for both of us. Saw a few Thai cats ambling around the food stalls though these were not of the Siamese variety and looked just like our average strays.
If my food hunt until now looks a little complicated to you, let's take you to the night market in Bangkok. Yes, it's a non-vegetarian's paradise with delectable eats that would often be a sweet surprise on your plate. Occasional grease fires at the stalls added to the atmosphere of this food sanctuary in the heart of the city.
