After my cooking class, I just spent the afternoon walking within the old city. There are more wats here, than I can explain to you. Below are pictures of a number of them I just stumbled into while wandering around.
I then went back to my hostel to relax for a bit, but was too tempted by the Saturday Walking Street going on outside the hostel door. It’s basically a weekly street fair, there’s another one in a different location on Sunday nights as well.
Near the wat at the end of the street all of the lights were out and the vendors were selling by candlelight
I was still full from my cooking class that afternoon but had a couple of snacks, and bought a few things to bring back to the hostel for tomorrow. The juices were incredible, and really inexpensive. The priciest one here is 35 baht, or $1. Compare that to what you’d pay for fresh squeezed juice at home?!
I had a starfruit, a gac and passion fruit, and brought back a roselle juice for later. It was hard to not buy more, but I only have one more day in the city, and I know I’ll find other things I want to eat and drink. And in case you don’t know what a “gac” is, because I sure didn’t, here they are:
I also like this way of ordering sushi, you don’t have to commit to an entire roll of any kind. And 5 baht is about $.15 so you could get 7 pieces for a dollar.
