From clothes to bags to custom made phone covers, wallets and diaries to temporary tattoos, yummy street food to jewelry and tones of souvenirs, there is absolutely nothing a travel shopaholic wouldn’t find here. The Night Market is a long stretch of little shops that are open almost throughout the night swarming with people busy bargaining their way out of everything. Lively music, lights and a happy aura around it will make you fall in love with the whole concept.
At night markets we ate as much stick food, spicy soups, fat noodles and fruit shakes as our plastic bag tasseled arms could carry, to the point of becoming a fat noodle. They are clearly a popular attraction for the amount of Fereng and Chinese tourists amiably dawdling up the street and we easily lost each other on many occasions.I felt as though I was at a festival what with the threat of rain, street performers, sparkling lights and the mysterious stalls; and food hawkers with their questionable delights and the relaxed yet packed environment of ease at which people drink in the street. At the Ratchadamnoen road Sunday market it was much the same, only they played the national anthem and EVERYONE stood still and I noticed the air was clear from the lack of cigarette smoking allowed here.
