Soi 38 Night Market (Wednesday Photo)

Vendor at a Night Market

Night Market Vendor

Night market vendor, Sukhumvit Soi 38

This is vendor at the Sukhumvit Soi 38 night market is cooking dishes to order. My first meal in Thailand was a dish of duck noodles from this market at around 3:00 a.m. in November, 1992. There were about 20+ stalls set up and the whole area was lit up as bright as day. And I was not the only one eating – they were doing a brisk business!

It has fallen victim to Bangkok’s efforts to clean up the street food scene and no longer exists. (May 2020)

(Elsewhere on the website there’s another picture of a stall at the night market.)
