Talad Nang Loeng, Bangkok
The old Chinese market, its shop houses painted in bright colors, is one of Bangkok’s most beautiful and fun. As you wander, let your eyes search for crowded noodle stalls, try the famous sweets, or browse stands selling fresh vegetables and seafood. It’s best to go before 1 p.m. You might see a Chinese opera performance on the stage inside the market. Thanon Nakhon Sawan at Nakhon Sawan 7 Open Mon.–Fri. This appeared in the May/June 2010 issue.
