“Open local market with fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish and meat. I always love going to the markets when I’m in a new country. You can see an amazing variety of different products that you didn’t even know existed! If you have a sensitive nose, though, the fish and meat section might be a bit too much for some. The health and safety regulations are quite different from what we are used to in the West but hey, that’s why we travel: to see and experience something different. One of the best things in Thailand is definitely the delicious and juicy fruits. I’ve never had pineapple and mangos so tasty as in here. Fruits are not just healthy, they are also inexpensive!”
