FAMOUS Tom Yum Goong, BEST Boat Noodles, And EXPLORING! - BANGKOK TRAVEL VLOG | THAILAND 2018
Hey, good morning everyone it's Cory here I'm, in my Airbnb. Here in Bangkok, this is my first like real, full day where I'm gonna wake up and go to sleep still, in Bangkok, before, I head out today and kind, of like do some sightseeing look, for food and, a little bit of shopping I wanted. To show my Airbnb, real quick all, right here's the door and as you come in, this. Is it it's super, simple. It's. Just a nice comfy. Bed. With. AC heater, the. AC is very crucial here in Thailand. TV. Kind, of like a kitchen. Island thing inside, its got some plates, and bowls and utensils fridge. There, it is fridge hello, microwave. Hello and this, is the bathroom, it's. Like a. Wonderland. Up in here. It is a wet bath as you can see there's no curtain or anything but very nice water, heater I really like that one, of the things I wanted to point out to you guys was the view so, I'm on the second, floor unfortunately. And this is the view I've got this like off ramp for, one of the I guess like expressways, around here it's. Right outside that window and, look. At all the hose wires. But. This is Bangkok for you guys this. Is kind of like a little, balcony patio, thing. Where. You can dry your clothes and it has like a table, and some kind of like utility. Sink anyway, that's it for the quick tour of the Airbnb let's. Go. This, truck reminds me of the ones in Japan. All chromed, out. So. I found all the eateries, right, across the street from my Airbnb, in this market. Very. Cool I found, some baked chicken and, some. Come to salad, papaya. Salad and, then check out all these little goodies here I don't know what is what. So. I don't know how to read Thai I have no idea what the names of dishes are but these people are very nice and the. Guy helped, me pick us chicken, we're just gonna check it out this is gonna be my breakfast. We're, over this chicken dip. It in the sweet and sour sauce. Are. You juicy. This, is gonna be awesome you, can see there's like these little dried. Shrimps. Little baby shrimps, on there, we got the green papaya sliced, up I don't, know what else is in here I got, some tomato and it. Looks like peanuts. I. Don't. Know what kind of Chili's are making, this is like half-lift. I really. Like this salad. Green, bean. Look, I'm eating healthy suppose. I am, I'm, so happy guys the. Last time I came here three months ago it. Was during a national, holiday I didn't check the holiday schedule, my, date spent in Thailand was on, December, 5th it's, National, Day Father's Day, and the King's birthday all in one that, was my first time to Bangkok everything. Was too close didn't really have a chance to find names like eateries or street food there was like no street food anywhere so this time around I made sure I wasn't coming during a national holiday this is the most amazing most fresh, tasting, food I've had in a very very, long time. So, I just turned down some, random back alley, and. That's what's really cool about Bangkok is no matter what alleys you go down there's, always just some kind of like vibrant, neighborhood. So, I just stumbled upon this like market alley I'm gonna go in it. Cool I love. This. Down. The produce section. So. I ended up in some narrower. Alleys. Deeper. Into the neighborhood. And. There's still people selling, stuff here. It's. Very interesting. So. I ended up under. This expressway. And. It looks like there's a little market, like. Street food kind, of like. Shop restaurant, area. And, that hits the spot. So. As I walk along I'm, noticing there's a lot of a beautification, projects going on there, was people back there painting, tires. Whites with, different like polka dot colors and, you. Know they're planting, like really, beautiful plants, here they return this, essentially, like into a park or something down here it just looks really nice.
This. Walk was definitely. A great way to get a real feel for Bangkok. Neighborhoods. Everyone. I encountered, was extremely, friendly and there, was street food everywhere. As. I. Arrived to the Victory Monument Circle. I was quickly surrounded, by tons of shopping areas, for women's clothing. Bangkok. Really is one, of the largest shopping, cities in the world. So. Walking around the victory monument area, I heard that there's street. Food around here. A very popular place for some boat meetings so I'm gonna go check out what the boat noodles are all about so. Here's one of the many canals, and. I. Can see some signs that say the. Best of the boat noodle. Each. Bowl is actually, quite small, when. Ordering just, choose the items from the menu and tell them which type of noodles you'd like. There's. Plenty of condiments, on each table but, don't be shocked to see tons of ants in the sugar okay, this first one is load, noodles with thick soup, and beef, you. Can see it looks very hearty, and the broth is really dark it looks like there's some green onions and some black pepper and. It looks like a fish ball like a fish cake kind of a ball and thus a piece of beef in there and this, one is the boat, noodles with a sour, soup, and pork. So. I'm not sure what makes it sour but I can see some bean. Sprouts. It. Looks like peanuts. And red, chili flakes, let's. Doctor, this up a little bit. Red, chilly flakes here gonna pour that in there. That looks nice, I'm going to only put just a little bit in this one because it looks like it already has some spices, in there. The. Broth is really hearty. I added, that to the chili flakes nice. Kick to it these, bowls are very small but, it's good because then you can just like sample it and then keep going. You. Have to say the sour one actually, doesn't taste summer at all but. This is my favorite. I'm. So glad that it's small portions, so I hit, the road, keep eating. I. Just. Picked up some food to go going. Back to the Airbnb. It's starting to rain. And my. Driver was, like going all crazy through the traffic. We got some my Airbnb really fast which is awesome. Starting. To rain so. I can't really. Walk, around or, film any. So, just. Got some quick food and, like a little. Dinner and. Then, uh, gonna. Eat that for you guys so. Let's take out some of the stuff and look at it this. Is, looks. Like sweet and sour or. Sweet and spicy chili, sauce, here's, a different type of sauce so. I'm. Not sure what this is called but I've seen it like, while walking around I asked, for spicy, because he wanted to give me that and I was like spicy, spicy, and so, he gave me this and, he was very nice about that he also gave, me some.
Whoa. It's hot this. Is chicken. Soup. In a, bag it is, oh my god is so hot I can't even hold it yeah you can see in there there's some cilantro and there's pieces of chicken I guess this is like chicken, soup so, I've got a bowl, here for that and then, this. Is the main, thing. Here so. It's just some like simple, paper. That. Was used to, wrap all this with a rubber band, whoa. Look at that it's like a flower blooming, and, this. Is it so let's go ahead and try the broth itself I'm, very excited about this oh. Yeah. That's good mmm okay, now I have the sauce bag open but I don't have any kind of container or a dish to. Put it in so, I'm just gonna keep it in the bag like this and. Hopefully it doesn't spill over so. I'm just gonna use my fingers, and get some of this chicken and the rice together. And. Then how can I get this us out. Onto. My hand, here oh, yeah. That smells nice and strong, ah. All. Right anyways we're eating with our fingers that. Was, so, been. Good, excuse. My language I just couldn't help myself this sauce, is so. Nice it has a really good spice I found, this kind, of like a shallow bowl and, I. Poured that sauce in there so you can actually see, it very well now I'm. Gonna dip my chicken, only no rice just, chicken, all, up, in here. This. Is gonna be nice. I. Wish, I could buy a bunch of this and then fly it back to Vietnam with me I'm gonna have to learn how to make this recipe at home it's. Really good. No, we're, so. Baby this. Was only 45 five take, out right across the street. It, just doesn't get better than that guys I checked. Out of my Airbnb, the following, morning and left my bag in a locker at sea, on Paragon, I. Only. Had half a day to spend before having, to go to the airport so I knew exactly where, I wanted, to go. Wat, Pho also. Known as the temple, of the reclining Buddha, has been on my bucket list for, years. It. Houses the famous, 46. Meter long statue of Buddha in a reclining, position and, he's completely, covered, in gold leaf. Wat. Phou is not only a house for Buddhism it's also Thailand's. First public. University and. It's, a school for medicine, and Thai, massage to this day. After. Spending several, hours exploring, the huge, beautiful, temple, complex, I knew where my last stop in Bangkok was going to be. This. Unassuming, restaurant. Tucked away in some back streets is very, famous for having the best honeymoon, in. All of Bangkok. Let's. Try out this Brockie. Very. Rich. And, like buttery this. Broth alone was, worth coming to this restaurant. Check. Out the sizes fron guys. Underneath, we, got some really good noodles. Any night. Look at all that it. First. When. I don't talk for a long time while eating because. I have nothing to say. So, good. After. Eating my amazing, meal it was time for me to go get my bags and head to, the airport. Alright, guys I'm at the airport and, back to Hanoi and, as. You guys know if you've seen my other international.
