More images from my trip to Thailand last November, this time the night markets.
Last time I posted images from some Thailand day markets, this time I’m showing some of the night market life. While the day market was similar to a farmer’s market here in the states, the night market is more about non-food items for sale or already prepared food. The night market items for sale range from clothing stands, to house decorations, to electronics. Lots of food vendors are around to make sure you are well fed at the same time! This night market is the Saturday Night Market Walking Street – Wua Lai Road.

From what I could tell these are just little card holders. Other than weddings, I’m not sure when you’d need these items. But if you need a lot of them, this vendor has you covered!
Fly halfway around the world to get your Big Bang Theory t-shirt? Why not!
This was an interesting vendor. I would have never thought that there would be enough business for a framed bat/bug/insect/scorpion/butterfly vendor to have a table at the market. But clearly I was wrong.
If you look closely at the top right bat and then go over to the right a little you’ll see the girl peeking around the corner at the camera! Didn’t even realize that when I took the picture. Found it a couple of months later after getting home and going through all the images.
Night market food is good! If it’s on a stick, it’ll probably be very tasty.
Now the sushi was one thing I didn’t try. I guess I figured raw fish sitting out for a long time in warm night air would not be the best thing for my stomach.
Angry Birds will find you no matter where you go!
The fresh-cut fruit in a bag was also really good.
And no night-time outing in Thailand is complete unless you end it with a tuk-tuk ride!
Riding in a tuk-tuk really isn’t that scary. At least not compared to the motorcycle taxis!
