S. American. Does the hygeine in Bankok concern you? Is there a time when the humidity is not so high. Wife was there a few years ago and indicated that they had to change clothes several times daily?
Wife really enjoyed the market in Bankok.

While in Bangkok, I typically take 3 showers a day.
Yes, it's hot and humid.
It varies from season to season, but not much.
A cool winter day might drop into the mid to high 80s.
I've been going to Bangkok once or twice a year, for up to 3 months at a time, for over 8 years.
Although I did pick up a "bug" a couple times, I've never been poisoned.
I chalked the bugs to the water.
I always try for "hot-off-the-grill" or something that moves quickly.
If stuff has been sitting around, I will head somewhere else.
I have Hep A and typhoid vaccinations.
Hep A is good anywhere, and typhoid is good for seafood eaters.

Very interesting pictures, but one seems a little out of place. Did you catch the Thai enchilada, complete with a small flag with a mustached Mexican graphic stuck in the food? Does seem a little unusual for a Thai street market
That's from Senor Pico's, pretty good Mexican for Thailand.
That was the most expensive meal I ate last trip, about $7 PP.
The tempura, suki and potato salad were diversions also.
That tempura set, with a glass of Thai tea and a small fruit plate, ran less than $3.
