5 Amazing Street Markets to Visit in Asia

Asia has a lot of experience to offer, from diverse culture and traditions to breathtaking architecture and authentic cuisine. Another must-checkout experience across this humongous continent is the plethora of vibrant local market scene. What each of these markets sell and for what purpose they serve varies widely. Some occupy an entire street while others can be found underground. Regardless what you’re shopping for, whether the perfect memento to bring home or experience delightful local cuisine, these five Asian markets will not disappoint you.

  1. Bugis Street, Singapore

Formerly Singapore’s central hub of vibrant nightlife, Bugis Street is now one of the world’s most renowned street markets where you can find trendy cafes, cheap shopping and amazingly good street food. Since it is sheltered, shoppers can absolutely spend the whole day shopping at its more than 800 stalls no matter the weather.

  • Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok

For a fancy Persian feline, a vintage hand bag or a good books to read—for all this and a lot more, include Chatuchak Weekend Market in your itinerary when visiting Bangkok.

With over 15,000 stalls spread across the 27-acre field, you’re sure to find everything you need and experience shopping like you never did before.

  • Angkor Night Market, Cambodia

Cambodia’s Angkor Night Market is a one-stop shop for anyone looking for handcrafted home wares, massages and even live entertainment.

  • Namdaemun Market, Seoul

Established more than 50 years ago, Namdaemum Market is the biggest market of its kind in Seoul. Open 24/7, this market boasts more than 10,000 vendors, retailers and wholesalers. While this gigantic market operates every day, it is actually up to the vendor what time in the day they open their stalls. But rest assured, you’ll find many that never closes.

A few tips when going shopping in Divisoria: dress down, don’t take anything valuable and keep your wallet in the front pocket at all times. After all, you can’t expect to be 100 percent safe from pickpockets at any of these crowded places, can you?

5 Things You Need to Do When Moving Into a New Home

Moving can be overwhelming and very exhausting. There’s just so much to do in one day. However, having a list of to-dos when you move into your new house can make this seemingly endless task of moving a lot easier.  Here’s how to do that:

  1. Make a priority list

The moment you walk into your new house, your mind will be racing with so many to-dos. Manage this overwhelming task by keeping a notebook with you and writing down the necessary things to do to the house over the course of the day. After a day, cut the list off and then put the items in order of priority. Once you’ve completed the list, start jotting down notes again for a day, and then repeat the same process. But keep in mind that first things to be done should be about safety concerns, unpacking and cleaning.

  • Know the houses before making major changes

Before knocking down a wall, adding an upper floor or extending the bathroom, live first in the house long enough (around a year) to see the potential weaknesses of the structure and to get a feel whether you really need that change or not. It could be that you’re just too accustomed with your old home that’s why you thought you needed that kitchen renovation. What you initially think to change in the house may change after living in it for a while.

  • Change the locks

It’s just a small price for peace of mind. Even if the previous owner of the house has handed over the keys, you don’t know who else might have a copy of them. A babysitter, a dog walker, a cleaning lady or a family member? You just can’t imagine how many other people have the keys to your home, so changing the locks as soon as you move in will give you optimum security and peace of mind.

  • Clean!

If the house is turned over to you sparkly clean, you need to deep clean it before living in it. Do it from top (the attic, second storey rooms or the ceiling) to bottom (the ground floor). Clean the chandelier or any light fixtures first, scrub the walls and finish with the floor. As you work your way down, do not leave an area until they are totally clean before moving on.

  • Finish a room immediately and make it your sanctuary

You can’t expect to finish it all in a day, and it’s ideal to live in the house for several months before doing any major changes. So, choose a room that does not require too much work and make that spot cozy. While your home isn’t completely done yet, you have a place to relax and make yourself feel at home.

Work through the process one step at a time, and let this list be your guide to getting through the most stressful part of moving.
