The tlāds in Thailand (Thai for “market”) have definitely been some of the best experiences i have had since arriving here. From the Weekend Market in Bangkok, arguably the biggest market in the world, to Walking Street in Chiang Mai, there is always something to do and see. Vendors sell food, clothing, and little trinkets that are always catching your attention. Just when you think you’ve seen it all you stumble upon another booth of handmade goods that always require the last hundred baht that you have left. Bargaining is an art and a source of entertainment within itself, and also offers a great way to practice our numbers (nung, song, sam). Having spent close to twelve hours in the markets already, I probably haven’t even seen half of what they have to offer. They are a melting pot of tourists and locals who are all hunting for a good deal and some even better food. I can’t wait til next weekend to do it all over again!
