Chatachuk Market

John and I headed down to Chatachuk market earlier today to get some lunch and have a look around. I think every tourist who visits Thailand has been to this sprawling weekend market that sells everything you could think of.

We had lunch at one of the stalls near the tube entrance. The photo is of me and the guy who was making the Som Tum (papaya salad), while dancing along to the music and wearing his sunglasses. He was quite a picture!

After lunch we did some shopping in the market and picked up a few gifts. As with my visit a couple of years ago it soon became oppressively hot browsing through the crowded market stalls.

We had to retreat for a massage and then back to the flat.....

  1. Only a Somtum chef in sunglasses working with the spiciest Thai chillis, in 34 degree heat could look good dancing to Boney M's 'Daddy Cool'.

    Almost the best Somtum restaurant in Jatujak market.
