A series of photo projects on “The area where I live”. The first one is the Muang Ya or 100 year old market, which isn’t actually a 100 years old! but hey it feels and looks the part . There are nearly always something like this in most big cities, I just wish we kept them in the UK!
This is a popular night spot for eating in Korat. This place has with retro and vintage look, but it is not 100 years old. It was build around 2011 on 3 Rai of land.
Beside many food stands, there are kinds of “antiques” at the back, from old cellphones behind a glass, to old pedicabs and old cars.
It still has an historic value:during the Vietnam War, the owner built wooden bungalows for American soldiers to rent. These bungalows were about 100 years old and remained until 2011. Later, the land was sold and transformed into that market. You can still see them now!
It’s covered, so even during the rainy season, you can eat outside without any problem. In the last years (2017-2018) more or more seafood and fish on BBQ are available and seems to be a trend.
