We're lucky to find two night markets in one night in Krabi Town, Thailand.
We're lucky to be in Krabi Town on a Saturday night when there's a night market in the town centre with food, clothes and entertainment. It attracts a mainly local crowd but it is very tourist friendly with lots of signage in English.
This lady was making tiny wontons of steamed rice pancake with an innards of peanuts and sugar.
She slices the circle into quarters then deftly flips it together to form a wonton. Delicious.
So much fresh seafood to try - musssels and cockles, live-o.
Not food, it's carved soap, so purdy.
Deep fried crabs with a ready to go som tum salad.
Larb in a bag.
Glorious mud crusted oysters, shucked as you want 'em.
Muslim grilled chicken on a stick, marinated in a lightly spiced tomato flavoured sauce. Delicious.
Fried noodles and salad.
Golden stir fried vermicelli noodles.
Great big squiddie fun.
Pickles, peanuts and fried fish.
Savoury fruit salad, tiny sausages and fried rice.
Add a fried googie and you're done.
This Thai style birani rice pops up a lot, filling and not-so-spicy. Love it.
These eggs were incredible. The yolk was full flavoured, the outside coated in a pork mince. Thai scotch eggs. A pussycat we met in the street later really appreciated some of the pork filling.
Fresh mussels ready to be grilled.
This is all the fixins' for a salad. Just select what you and it's made for you on the spot. I love the sliced pile of lemongrass, and the way it has been artfully put together so the colours complement each other.
Noodles ready to be mixed with pork and eggs.
Brightly coloured sweets, sold by a very bored 10 year old girl. She cleared most of her stock by night's end.
Marinated fish ready for the grill.
Pretty, spotty quail eggs.
Cooked quail eggs, we're hooked on these.
This device makes little ice blocks made from soft drink. The lady filled the device with ice and continually shook it, somehow this froze the liquid. We've seen these a lot around Thailand.
More salad fixings.
Tiny fish cakes.
Grilled Thai sausages.
Green mango and guava with spicy sauce. Often eaten with a salty chilli powder as well.
Delicious thai tea flavoured pudding.
We check out the nightly night market down by the river. Once again this has a mixed Thai and tourist punters, lots of signage in English.
Food on sticks = instant party.
One of our biggest regrets of the trip was not trying this grilled, salted fish. We just never had the tummy space.
BBQ \ noodle soup cart.
Hawker lady in action.
Ripe mini mangoes.
One of the vendors who had made our fried mussels earlier had a little pal he seemed to pull out of his pocket, he was so soft.
Tops old auntie and uncle making sweeties.
Shawn fell in love with this dessert: a slice of pumpkin filled with sweet Thai custard. Hoochiemama.
Cooking coconut sweets.
Fried quail eggs, dusted with pepper. Oh my god. Got slightly addicted to these.
Crab and prawn dim sims.
The night market in the Krabi town centre, known as Krabi Walking Street, is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. You'll find it (follow your nose and ears) on Thanon Sukhon in the heart of town. The other night market is down on the Chao Fan pier.
