But, there’s nothing more authentic and cultural than taking it to the streets. Day or night, you will see famous street markets everywhere. Along the beachfront, the roadside and at any major event. These intimate markets are a great way to get close to real local life with very little effort.
So, if nothing else, take a romantic stroll through one of our suggested markets and you’re sure to pick up a bargain or two, perhaps some fresh quality ingredients to whip up a delicious meal, or even some local sweets for dessert.
1. Lad Poi Khong, Every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 4pm -10pm.
2. Weekend Market, otherwise know as the Naka Market.
3. Sunday Walking Street Market (Lard Yai) on Thalang Rd. A good day to walk around the old town.
4. And if the markets don’t tickle your fancy, then head to the Celebrity Valentine’s Jazz Concert at Central Festival. Word on the street is a trio of celebrity singers will accompany musicians from the prestigious Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in a free V-Day jazz concert, on February 14 at the Grand Hall on Floor 1 starting at 6pm.
All are welcome to enjoy the free concert featuring live renditions of romantic classics in a variety of languages, including Thai, English, French, Latin and Chinese.
