Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!

NEW RESTO ALERT: Marudori

Not another ramen place!  There are more than enough great ramen place all over Metro Manila (and even the whole archipelago) but there's nothing like a specialty place like Marudori. Think chicken, chicken, and chicken. Yum! Marudori is one of the restaurants that opened when almost the whole world was still in partial lockdown due to the pandemic. But it is easy to spot a good resto when you see it full of diners and a waiting line. 

Chicken Feet and Noodles at SOOK Siam

It was almost closing time when we reached ICONSIAM and we also spent a lot of time exploring the indoor floating market area called- SOOK Siam . There's a lot to see and explores so by the time we decided to eat, most of the stalls and restaurants are already closing. 

SOOK Siam: Indoor Floating Market

Aside from temples, food, night markets, Bangkok is also known for its famous floating markets. And if you haven't seen one yet, you can go to this link---> Damnoen Saduak Floating Market . It is a nice experience to go on an actual floating market tour but if you are pressed for time or not in the mood to go to the outskirts of Bangkok, then I suggest SOOK Siam. SOOK Siam is easily accessible via BTS Skytrain, or simply hop on to a taxi or tuktuk (depends on where you're coming from though). Or via Grab car, our preferred mode of transportation in Bangkok.
