Hello everyone, and welcome to my 200 follower special! I promised you something amazing, and boy am I excited! Four weeks ago, I traveled to Thailand to visit my Stepmom’s family. I also went to China for about five days. I had the most amazing time in Asia, and will be discussing my experiences in both places in this multi-part series. I hope you guys will enjoy this as much as I enjoy writing it. Now, let’s go on an amazing adventure together. It’s time for part one, Nakhon Pathon Market.
The Nakhon Pathon Market is a floating marketplace that’s located in the Sam Phran Province of Thailand. I found things that I’ve never seen before, and it was incredible. I will be showing the pictures I took there, as well as a brief description of each one. It was truly an unforgettable experience, and I’m so glad that I’m able to share it with you guys, Now, without any further ado, let’s get started!
(This is what I believe to be a custard apple. The Thai custard apple is known as Noi na, which means hand grenade. It supposedly tastes extremely sweet, and is filled with many seeds.)
( This is a beautiful Thai dessert that’s known as Khanom Chan. Khanom Chan is a special 9-layer cake that’s made with coconut milk, pandan juice, Mung bean flour, sugar, tapioca flour, rice flour, and talcum flour.)
(This was a very neat dried fruit counter. It had dried mangosteen, muscat, jackfruit, durian, and bananas.)
(Fish were a big part of the marketplace, and you could smell them from miles away. They sold everything, from fish heads, to tiny fish eggs.)
(This lovely counter had some strange looking fried food, as well as one of my favorite Thai desserts, Pang Chi. Pang Chi is a sweet Thai pancake that’s made with taro, coconut milk, corn, palm sugar, and rice flour.)
(These are delicious peanut cookies. It’s like a peanut brittle on steroids.)
(This is a rather unsettling picture of some headless fowl. I find the bright red bird extremely fascinating. The unique aroma of spices and onions filled the air when I passed this counter.)
(Over in this corner, we have some candied rambutan, as well as some adorable sweets in the shape of rubber ducks.)
(This final picture is of another seafood counter with delicious looking crab. Since the market is on the water, the crustaceans are extremely fresh.)
I hope you guys enjoyed the first part of my Thailand adventure. I would love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.
