It is not without good reason that you seldom hear the phrase ‘as pretty as a Thai street’…
Thai urban streets are a bit of a mess, and often downright dangerous. You need your wits about you at all times; traffic in many forms can come at you from any direction at any moment.
Setting up the Night Market – dragging the stalls out of storage, with motorbikes…
The Night Market stalls being set up, lets play ‘Spot the trip hazard’.
Thai Utility Vehicle, this can be be used for many purposes: family transport, carriage of extraordinarily large items like wardrobes, or just as a mobile vending stall… up to you really.
It wasn’t always like this though; look at this old teak house, must have been beautiful in it’s day.
Despite the apparent chaos, things do work pretty well, and you will seldom be bored on a Thai street; there is always something going on not far away.
