Dans les rues de Bangkok…

Yes, after all the Cambodia drama, we decided to skip Kratie, Siem Reap, Angkor Wat and Phnom Pehn and just cross the border into Thailand (across the Mekong from Vientiane).

It took us a few hours in a minivan (which ended up smuggling suscipicious merchandise across the cambodian border and using us as a cover while making deliveries in the suburbs of Pakse, but that is another story altogether), one night bus, one ride across the Lao-Japanese Friendship bridge and one night train, but we made it to Bangkok.

The best of Bangkok? The Chatuchak weekend market, the largest market in Southest Asia, and the street food. People rave about street food and food courts in Singapore, but what about Bangkok?

Bangkok 056

We love it and can’t wat to come back.

By the way, any idea what’s in that picture?

  1. It’s wierd but it seems good..

    It can’t be cheese..
    It can’t be ham..
    But I don’t know what it can be..

  2. The shell tastes like a fortune cookie. The inside, well, I saw all sorts of different ingredients on my trip, but those look like “marshmallow fluff” or some other mostly artificial concoction. The orange stuff is likely shredded carrot soaked in sugar syrup.

    I had one in Bangkok. It was nothing special, but the presentation is certainly entertaining!

    Thanks for linking to my travel website, Ephemerratic!
