The Filipino Market @ Kota Kinabalu (aka Handicraft Market) would be THE place for souvenirs. Hundreds of little stores occupy the market; it’s sort of like a treasure hunt where you have to navigate through the little walkways, avoiding bumping into people at the same time. Continue reading
There are many floating markets around Bangkok with Damnoen Saduak being one of the bigger ones that’s an incredible place to visit. The market has plenty of tropical fruits to savor and it’s bustling with noise where shoppers & vendors chatter away. Continue reading
The Maeklong Railway Market is an hour and a half’s drive from Bangkok; it’s located in Samut Songkhram Province, the smallest province in Thailand. The market seems like any typical wet market in Thailand selling local produces. But the vendors here lead a much more dramatic life than any other market vendors because the train runs through the market a few times a day.

After our morning in the hustle and bustle of Apt Market, we found this kebab place in the back lane. Thought it would be a quiet place to enjoy our lunch. Indeed it was as less people were coming through this lane.
Excellent kebab stuffed with fries (4.50 euros). We liked the kebab a lot and decided to take it away for dinner as well, along with the fresh produce of fruits and wine from Apt Market.
Simple selections on the menu all at really reasonable prices.
Few tables outside the store for a quick bite or you can simply take away the kebab and eat while you walk.
Doner Kebab is along Rue Pasteur. As Apt market is a bit of labyrinth to get around, so good luck finding it!
Saturday market in Apt is a FEAST for your senses! There’s all sorts of things in the market – all in summery intense colors. Food, fresh produce, trinkets, flowers, carpets, accessories, art, wine, kitchenware, ornaments and more. There’s so much to see, to taste and to smell! Continue reading

Nanmen Market has 4 floors. The basement floor Continue reading
