Do a Float­ing Mar­ket Med­ley

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Taste a slice of old Bangkok with a marathon of the float­ing mar­kets that still pep­per the city’s wa­ter­ways. Kick off with a hearty break­fast at Tha Kha Float­ing Mar­ket, where you can pick up a stir-fried omelet or some sweet co­conut dumplings from one of the ladies on the boats.

For your in­ner foodie, make the week­endonly Am­phawa Float­ing Mar­ket your next stop. You’ll find ev­ery­thing from bags of green mango slices sprin­kled with pink chili sugar to grilled seabass with lime dip.

Tried and tested: We loved the full-day Off­beat Float­ing Mar­kets Food Tour ($803, in­cludes at least 17 food sam­ples in three float­ing mar­kets) by Bangkok Food Tours— the guide did a great job show­ing us around the mar­kets and ex­plain­ing Thai food and cul­ture, all the while mak­ing sure that we were prop­erly fed. It might sound ex­pen­sive com­pared to other tours, but con­sid­er­ing all the noms you’ll be gorg­ing on, it’s a pretty sweet deal.
