Chang Puak Night Market, a Hawker Feast

Sample a variety of hawker delicacies at Chang Puak Night Market just outside the North gate of the moat. Try the stewed pork leg (khao kha moo) from the famous vendor with the cowboy hat (aka “Pretty Pork Lady”) who’s had visits from the likes of Anthony Bourdain. Pad Thai noodles are best sampled here and be sure to order the version enveloped in a paper-thin egg omelette. The pièce-de-résistance is undoubtedly the dessert. Bua Loi, or floating lotus, is a warm fresh coconut milk broth with teeny pandan-laced glutinous rice flour balls swimming around. It could change your life.
