On Day 6 of this Bangkok food and travel video guide series we got a bit of a late morning start, and from our hotel we headed straight to Silom Soi 10 Food Court (ศูนย์อาหาร สีลมซอย 10) for lunch. After that we went to the Bangkok Snake Farm to see a snake show, and then had a coffee. For dinner we ate at Niyom Restaurant (ร้านนิยม) and to end the day we went to Asiatique The Riverfront – a big night market entertainment area.
00:55 Silom Soi 10 Food Court (ศูนย์อาหาร สีลมซอย 10) – If you’re ever in the Silom area of Bangkok during lunch on the weekdays, one of my favorite places to get some Thai street food is the Silom Soi 10 Food Court (ศูนย์อาหาร สีลมซอย 10). You just walk into the lane, and it will open up into a giant market. Just walk through all the clothes, and soon you’ll find yourself in a wonderland of food – just about all Thai street food that you can imagine and more is available at this office food court in Bangkok. I decided to start with a plate of yam mama (ยำม่าม่า), which is instant noodle salad. I’ll first tell you that this is not a dish I’d normally eat, but the stall at this market is extremely famous, so had to give it a try. It was alright, but definitely Thai instant noodles. I then had a plate of khao man gai (ข้าวมันไก่), which is the Thai version of chicken rice. I liked how you could add as many chilies and ginger and sauce to your plate of chicken rice. Overall good, but chicken rice is what it is. I felt like I need some flavor though, so Ying bought me a bowl of khao soi gai (ข้าวซอยไก่) chicken curry noodles, and it was a great way to end the lunch here at this amazing Bangkok food court. If you go, you have so many choices of what to eat.
9:41 Lumpini Park (สวนลุมพินี) – Located in Silom, Lumpini Park (สวนลุมพินี) is the central park of Bangkok. I didn’t really have plans to go, but since we had some extra time before the snake park show started, we walked around for a while. It’s a park that’s well worth visiting when you’re in Bangkok. A great place to walk around and get some exercise.
10:36 Bangkok Snake Farm (สถานเสาวภา) – Located at the Thai Red Cross Society, Bangkok Snake Farm (สถานเสาวภา) offers a snake demonstration at 2 pm, and we got there just in time for the snake show. One of the reasons it’s such a good show for me is because it’s very educational. The snake show is not just for the show, but since at the facility they create anti-venoms, they teach a lot about snakes, and have a real respect for snakes. It’s a pretty cool snake show, and I think it’s well worth a visit when you’re in Bangkok (the Bangkok Snake Farm is featured in the 101 Things To Do In Bangkok eBook: https://migrationology.com/store/eboo…)
13:31 Niyom Restaurant (ร้านนิยม) – For dinner we went to a restaurant at Silom Plaza called Niyom Restaurant (ร้านนิยม) that specializes in Chinese Teochew food. Along with a bunch of other good, but on the plain side dishes, my favorite dish of the night was moo dom (หมูต้ม), boiled pork served with a fermented bean sauce and chilies and ginger.
18:47 Asiatique The Riverfront – One of the main Bangkok night markets is Asiatique The Riverfront, and the easiest way to get there is to take the BTS skytrain to Saphan Taksin, and from there they have a free shuttle boat that will take you directly to Asiatique The Riverfront. The market is very modern, and includes a mix of store, souvenir shops, and restaurant, and places just to hang out. It’s a huge Bangkok tourist attraction, but it’s a pleasant place to walk around in the evening. We didn’t really do much, and then headed back to our hotel.
