We recently had a short vacation to Bangkok to sample their food and clothing items. This is my second time there so I already have an idea of where to go and when to buy. On the first day, we had a festival of food particularly fruits which have the best quality. In photo are the brown tamarind, the red macopa, the yellow duku, the yellow-orange maprang which is like a small mango that is very sweet. On the second day, we shopped for clothing items which are the cheapest but with good quality. In photo below is the flea market in the street that is open every morning. Those women are not mannequins. But we also went to places, of course, to enjoy the sights like the elephant show and elephant ride. Not to forget, we went to 3 temples for some religious trip and pictorials. There are so many things to do in Bangkok aside from shopping and touring. Would you believe that we sampled the cooked insects sold by a street vendor? For a stranger, Bangkok is a real strange place that you will surely enjoy. It was a good 4-day vacation that is worth the cost.
