September 12, 2010 – Petchburi Market, Bangkok, Thailand

When I was doing the itinerary, I made sure I will have enough time to roam around a market. I learned from a travel TV show that for you to know the culture of a country, you have to go to the Market.

There are a lot of things going on in a market. Raw meats hanging in a steel pole, fruits and veggies, sellers shouting at each other and even at you, pushcarts of refreshments and pica foods, souvenirs lined up on a table with prints of their country’s name, locals carrying colored plastic bags while haggling for low prices. These are just some of the things we can see in a market. The way they do these is what their culture is. You can even just sit at one side and observe them, and you’ll have the best daytour of your travel.

As for me? I enjoyed the market of Bangkok by eating their streetfoods. =)
