Since one of our favourite cuisines from around the world is the Thai, we decided to visit the Lamai market, from where we could buy fresh ingredients.

On the island there are several markets and the Lamai market is much smaller than the one located at Chaweng or Nathon. The colourful market consists of exotic and unfamiliar fruits as well as fake bags, Man U shirts, kids toys and Thai styled pancakes.
