Asian Open Markets

One of the great things about international travel is the opportunity to spend time with people at the local open markets. From the floating markets of Thailand to the city markets of Taiwan or Hong Kong; there is always something new to eat, and quality food to take home. Exploring is not just about being a tourist but about experiencing life with local people, and that means food. It’s alway enjoyable, interesting, and even surprising to see what other cultures around the world have used and developed over time.

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
