There is even McDonalds and Burger King- opening 24 hours a day, so you need not worry about being starved. At night, some of banks are open for you to exchange foreign currencies.

Above:  Aside from fastfood and restaurants by the main road, you can also eat at the huge food eatery area here.  To reach this place, you have to walk past McDonalds and Burger King along the same direction as motor traffic and turn in one of the bigger alleys on your left. If you are not sure, you can also ask any of the people selling items- most of them can speak English.

When you reach there, look around- on the left hand side, there is a place for locals to eat where the food are priced locally. If you go to one of the restaurants above, it is quite pricey (foreigner’s price).  Previously, I brought my friends to the local area and ate noodle soup and fried chicken.

Anyhow the area is normally quite jam- and finding parking can be a problem.

Typical Thai tees sold here. You have bargain or name a reasonable price and go from store to store till someone agrees to sell to your price. It’s better to go with a Thai friend who can bargain. And once you and the seller agree on the price, please buy the item- don’t walk away or you may upset the seller.

I bought a few sets of this type of lights- took them back home and could not get them to work 🙁

Anyway, paid only about 80 baht for one long dangling ones with mini lightbulbs. In Bangkok, they charge much more expensive for this.
