Bangkok trip – 26 Dec 10

Today is shopping day again. As most of the stalls in Chatuchak markets are open only on weekends, I reserved Sat & Sun purely for shopping. We decided to explore those non-clothes area first to take a look at what are the things sold in Chatuchak. It range from pets, daily necessity, household displays, flowers, kitchenwares, paintings etc.

We passed by the second hand clothes area which is at Section 6. We knew these are second hand clothes at once cos our nose is super sharp, haha...

This taste like carrot cake but our local carrot cake taste better.

I still prefer Singapore char siew. The one here is a bit dry.

Our initial plan was to watch Muay Thai at Channel 7 Stadium. In the end, we decided to continue with our shopping spree. As we walked further down, we reached Section 3 which is the designer area. The clothes here are more expensive so I didnt bought anything here.

We passed by a dessert shop and decided to try it out. The dessert looks like "Chin chow" but taste bland, hence brown sugar is added.

It's already 3pm and we decided to have our late lunch in Chatuchak.

We left Chatuchak market after a day of shopping and went back to the hotel.

We wanted to go for a massage at Ruen Nuad but it's fully booked until 8pm so we reserved a slot at 8pm. We went back to the hotel to rest before going out to buy mango sticky rice at Mae Varee (Address: 1 Soi Thong Lor, Sukhumvit 55 Klongtunnua Wattana. Direction: BTS Thong Lor Exit 3, walk a short distance to Sukhumvit 55 and turn left. Head down soi 55 and the shop is located on the left side. Opening hours: 24hrs)
