When in Asia? Hit up all the night markets. Where else can you find anything you can think of like the most bizarre foods on sticks?! Who wouldn't want to try scorpion or squid? Apart from the crazy food, the night markets are a tourist parties hosted every single night of the week. The streets are lined with shops, food stands, bars, games, and everything entertainment. Needless to say, you could find me at the night markets, I had to check out them all.
I tried all the best food stand foods, purchased numerous souvenirs. Including bracelets hand made in front of me, elephant pants, and lots of purses. The people working the night markets are hustlers, you get approached by everyone trying to sell their bar or food. It gets overwhelming, but at the same time thats how we knew of the good places, and how we bargained on prices.
