Songkhla Night Market: $10 Feeds a Family of Four

If you’re on a budget travel to Thailand , one important thing to plan is where to eat. This touristy country certainly has so many restaurants to choose from but one sure place to get super affordable food is the Night Market.

Please watch this short video to find out where you could get the best value for your money.

Night Market is the place to go. Night markets or night bazaars are street markets, which apparently opens at night. It is certainly cheaper than regular restaurants, or fastfood chains. Aside from this, the night market is the best place to experience Thai food and delicacies at an affordable price. Also, most night markets promote local traditions like the Thai puppet show, folk songs and dances, so this is the place to go to feel authentic Thai vibes.

As seen in the video, 10USD has bought a family of four enough food for dinner. And below are the food they bought in the night market.

  1. Fried rice with vegetables and salted fish.
  2. Bamboo shoot spring rolls
  3. Roasted pork
  4. Deep fried chicken
  5. Crispy fried seafood with vegetables
  6. Local french fries
  7. Strawberry shake
  8. Crispy pancakes
  9. Bottled water

It is a tradition and certainly a great one. Going to a night market, especially in big cities is like one-stop shopping as it also has shops for Thai souvenirs and memorabilia. Definitely the best place to go if you are on a budget travel to Thailand or to any Asian country.

One downside though, which by the way is being looked at for solution, is the amount of plastics used.

Have you ever been to a night market?

If you are looking for an affordable place and at the same time loaded with so much fun to visit with your family, you might want to consider going to the most affordable aquarium in Thailand.

Reading Through Social Media

Reading, is it still important? An absolute yes!

On the other hand, we have social media, which many claim have been distracting our children from reading, playing with friends, socializing face to face with others, and from their studies in general. However, social media is a reality. It’s not going anywhere. It’s here to stay. And whether we like it or not, it is a super big part of our lives, most especially of our kids. How about reading through social media?

What do we do then?

I personally think that we should make use of social media to our advantage as parents. Now, I’m not saying we let our children have all the screen time they want. There should still be rules regarding that. Screen time should be limited to make time for some diverse outdoor activities, and that children have to take part in house chores, if you’re interested you may also check 5 reasons children need chores. What I’m saying is, we can re-direct them to something productive and beneficial. As I see it, social media can be tapped by parents to encourage children develop and improve their skills.

My children love watching Youtube videos. I showed them some family videos we had; they loved it. Also, they like watching them from time to time. This was a light bulb moment for me. Since they like watching themselves in videos, why not make a video of them doing something really productive and beneficial, say, reading!

Reading through Youtube

In the beginning, this really was a training for our bilingual children. The main goal was to motivate them to read some more, and develop their English pronunciation. I soon realized that, it could also be beneficial for other children who are watching. They could simply listen first, then read along, and then eventually read the story all by themselves.

Here are list of Reading videos we’ve made so far. Please feel free to watch and share with people who you may think will benefit from these.
