In Samui this is must do. It may be aimed at tourists but you do see the culture, colours and comportment of local life that you may not witness otherwise. Absolute hustle bustle of people on a long narrow street with bars, trinket shops and food vendors. It’s a great experience whether you chose to walk in leisure, people watch, sip a mojito or buy a well haggled bikini. Later in the evening this place seems like one big street party.. Along with many other smaller street parties.
The feature picture above is that of a local kid – her savoir-faire for the trade, yet detached in crowd look was quite intriguing.. So I took my long zoom lens and captured my artistic representation for what might be her banal activity.
Below are some more pictures from the market.. Where I’d love to be lost again.
As you can tell by the pictures, I’d best describe this market :
Value for money – from cheap local delicacies for foodies to fulfilling every want of shopaholics .. the market caters to all
Chilled out – relax, sip a Long Island iced tea and people watch
Culture & colour – you’ll find plenty of this thanks to local tradesmen
