I have always been fascinated by the street vendors of Thailand. Their magic on the streets producing the right product for the customer, to capture their presence to buy their wares. Studying their manner with people is an experience I have always envied. Passing by their carts and seeing the same people return day after day is a credit to their capabilities as entrepreneurs. When you look, no, observe their actions, the street vendor is in the zone. Total concentration to provide the service for an end result. The picture below was captured during a Sunday visit to the best market place I have visited in my time in Thailand. It is non other than Sampeng Lane Market or the full tittle Soi Wanit 1.
A crowded maze of streets of both retail and wholesale products for sale and this should not be missed if in Bangkok, if you want to feel the Chinese influence of the city. If for a short time. Make this a priority on your list.
Total work ethic to keep the customer satisfied and the end resort money in the pocket.
Coming soon to my youtube channel, a photo essay featuring the people of Thailand. Once the video is complete I will post the link. But just as a taster I have posted a few pictures from the collection.
You have admire the old Thai lady in the picture who is a street vendors selling food on the street. Get up early in the morning and prepare the food to sell. The temperature in Thailand has been the hottest in my twenty years here. So waiting in the sun for someone to buy her products, takes it toll.
