Visited the foodmarket in Muang Thong Thani in the north of Bangkok. There was hundreds of stalls in an outdoor market all preparing food in the open air.
It was a heady intoxication just to walk along the aisles and breath in the aroma of all the different foods that were cooking. It was an appitizer in itself.
The place that I liked the most was where you could select boiled rice and two different toppings, and the thing that I liked the most was the price.
The meals in these photos cost the handsome price of 35 bhat, which in the real world translates to about 70 cents (European). The exchange rate at the moment is 100 bhat = 2€.
Can you imagine that? A similar meal in Finland would cost ten times as much. All of the plates in the food market are marked with a symbol or a number of the stall where you bought the food from, and there are collected washed and returned to the stall holder. The place is packed with people eating good food for cheap prices.
