A visit to a night market in Thailand

A visit to a night market in Thailand

(For English version scroll down a bit)
Nachtmärke muss man hier in Thailand nicht suchen, sie finden dich! Ich war auf dem Roller auf dem Rückweg zum Hostel und hatte mich verfahren. Anstatt dessen fand ich den Nachtmarkt am Malin Plaza in Patong vor mir. Der Geruch von frisch gebratenem Fleisch liegt in der Luft. Jetzt da die Temperaturen abgekühlt sind, die Nacht angebrochen ist, erweckt Phuket zum Leben. Auf dem Markt bauen etliche Menschen ihre Stände auf- Abend, für Abend. In Thailand sind Garküchen auf der Straße keine Seltenheit. Vor Allem in großen Städten wie Bangkok, in denen Platz rar ist, haben viele Familien keine eigene Küche. Leben auf engen Raum zusammen und haben meist nur einen Raum in der die ganze Familie schläft. Da nicht selber gekocht werden kann, bieten etliche Straßenstände die unterschiedlichsten Speisen, die meist erst bei Bestellung frisch zubereitet werden, an. Aus der Not wurde eine Tugend gemacht.
Auf den Märkten tummeln sich Thais um das Essen für ihre Familien zu kaufen und etliche Urlauber. Grillspieße liegen aus, frisch gefangener Fisch liegt auf Eis, Früchte in allen Farben, Gewürze. Es gibt nichts, was es hier nicht gibt. Selbst einen Stand mit Sushi habe ich gesehen. Nachdem man sich für etwas entschieden hat, bekommt man es frisch zubereitet. Das Fleisch und der Fisch brutzeln auf dem Grill und werden anschließend nach Wunsch gewürzt.  Anschließend wird es verpackt und kann gut mitgenommen werden. Auch viele Sitzgelegenheiten laden zum Verweilen an und so probiert man sich von Stand zu Stand.
Weiter hinten erstreckt sich eine überdachte Markthalle mit Klamottenständen, Souvenirs, Elektronik, Kosmetik, Tees und Thaigewürzen und vielem mehr. Wie gesagt, hier muss man nicht suchen, hier wird man gefunden.
In Thailand you don’t need to look out for night markets, they will find you! I was riding my scooter back to my hostel and got lost on the way. Instead of my hostel, I found the night market “Malin Plaza” in Patong. The smell of grilled meat is lying in the air. Now that the heat from the day is gone and it turned night, Phuket is waking up. Lot of people open their stalls here- every single evening. Cookshops on the road in Thailand are not a rarity. Especially in big cities like Bangkok, where people don’t have much space too live, not everyone has their own kitchen. Families are often living in one room. Because food can’t be cooked at home, lot of food stalls on the roads or on markets offer all kinds of food, which get freshly prepared for the customer after ordering.
Here, Thais are buying food for their families and tourists are walking around. Satay, the catch of the day lies on ice, fruits in all kind of colors, spices are offered. There is nothing which isn’t sold here. I even discovered a food stall selling sushi. After you made your choise, they will prepare it for you. Meat and fish is grilled on the BBQ and you can choose the sauce later. You can have it as a take away or sit down and eat on the market. It is hard to resist and not try everything which is sold here.
Further there is also a market under a roof where clothes, cosmetics, electronics, tea and many other things are sold. As I said, you don’t have to search here, you will get found.
