The Local Market

The days recently got a little longer and the air little drier recently - Loy Krathong was apparently the end of the rain and the start of the dry season.

This also means that the local people in Borae (the village where Cape Panwa is located) start to fill the roads at the bottom of the hill with a variety of different things.  The people arrive on their specially converted motorbikes with any assortment of attachments.

As an aside I wonder if there is any guide as to how large the gas cylinder perched on the back is allowed to be?

The food stalls are a permanent (except when it rains) fixture on the promenade opposite Kantary Bay. There is always a selection of roti, Traditional Thai coffees and an assortment of barbecued satay and sausages.

As the night gets longer there are new arrivals – t-shirts, sun-hats, DVDs, wood carvings, dresses, handbags, watches and a plethora of other bits and pieces.

If you can’t find what you want there take a trip to Patong or the Weekend Market.

See you there.
