Hey! I’m still on day 3 here in Bangkok. So after Wat Pho escapade, I walked down here in the small but terribly pretty market of Phra Nakhon. A small local market which sells bulks of fresh vegetables and colorful flowers. Thai delicacies can never be dull, they also come in various colorful sizes and shapes.
Usually public markets are chaotic and filthy like many markets in Manila. The only difference here in Bangkok is that it is lesser and snatchers free. You could barely see by standers. Honestly, I can say whilst walking around streets of Bangkok, Thais are hardworking like Cambodians. No wonder, they were able to uplift their economy as one of the South East Asian countries with an auspicious future.
One more thing that I am so proud about Thais, they live independently with their own traditional ways, from food and textile manufacturing to their superb Thai cuisines! Although some local restaurants are just stalls or occupies such small makeshift spaces in the market, they really serve good food that they can say is originally from Thais’.
They have this bountiful supply of colorful flowers and vegetables which are sold in a very low prices.
Everybody is busy, never did I see anyone drinking liquors along the streets but old or young ones pull their carts, carry a bunch of vegetables or flowers, selling, buying, and all.
This is the literal “Stopping and smelling some roses”
It is so amazing that Bangkok has the sweetest fruits, crunchiest green leafy vegetables, and sweet- smelling flowers. In countryside parts of Thailand, you’ll be amazed how they maximized their land resources. It’s green everywhere. I’ll tell you more about it as we go along.
Almost everything here in Thailand from tropical fruits and vegetables, every tropical country like the Philippines also has yet, Thai fruits and vegetables are remarkably one of a kind!
Look how busy people are
Yep, just like any other market, here in Phra Nakhon it’s also one of the busiest. But geez! Look how organized and disciplined are they when it comes to orderliness and cleanliness. No snatchers, no drivers bugging you: peaceful!
Beautiful Orchids in a cheap price
Personally, this is the time that I realized, I hate the lavender color (by choice). Remarkably the dominant colors of flower displays are lavender, red and yellow.
Or maybe because it’s the color of the Royal flag?
I’ve just said I don’t like lavender but my slippers are lavender. (Gladly, it’s broken now). This is just a light and easy market walkabout hence It was difficult finding my way back to the hotel to the point of hiring a cab. But anyway, arrived in the room before midnight!!!
