Anyway, after our dinner, we walked around and started to shop. At first we tried walking inside because we thought that's where the cheap stuff would be. But after around 20-30 minutes of walking, we realised that it wasn't the case. The inside was narrow, warm and the shops sold more expensive items (or cheap items for a higher price). For example, we found a cap shop somewhere inside that sold all caps for 200 baht (SGD8) wholesale. You're probably thinking, oh yeah that's not bad. But we found another cap shop outside selling the same things for only 100 baht (SGD4)!!!
The outside, however, is spacious, cooling, windy (I was there in the evening so I can't say the same for the afternoon) and the best part: street food!!!!! We found many shops that sold their clothes for only 100-200 baht (SGD4-8) and at the same time, we could try street food! There was the delectable coconut ice cream and mango sticky rice which were sold at pretty low prices! I apologize, I can't remember either of the prices, but both were really yummy!!
As we were exiting, we also bought some freshly squeezed orange juice, which I absolutely love!! The guy sold bigger bottles for 50 baht (SGD2) and smaller bottles for 30 baht (SGD1.20). We drank it on the spot and loved it so much we decided to buy another 2 big bottles to bring home!!! And the nice guy gave us a free small bottle hehe!
That is all for today's post! I hope you enjoyed reading about my experiences in Bangkok so far! Do stay tuned for more about my adventures! Take care xoxo
