We are in Bangkok for a few reasons... Surgery, Marley and why not check out the place whilst we are at it
Such a crazy city Bangkok is. From overwhelmingly busy, cars everywhere, the never ending noise and the people on people, it was a very different experience for us little Australian family who grew up in the sticks. Living on a boat we are used to vacant beaches, palm trees and talking to rocks, now we are in the middle of truly organised chaos!! We had made the trip to Bangkok for Bonita to have emergency surgery. Now that she has been through the operation and is on the mend, we decided that with a few days left in Bangkok, we wanted to play tourist and check out something unique. The first bustling market is created on top of a train track. The shades and stalls cover the track and then 8 times a day, the vendors pull back their shades to allow the train to rattle through the market, missing their stalls and products but only inches! The second market is based from the old farming days where the rural communities were entwined by canals where the farmers would bring their fresh produce to market by boat. It has since transformed into a bustling tourist destination as the long tail boats bumper car their way through the market with stalls either side.
