As I had posted in the travel board about our trip to Bangkok, their street economy is amazing. It seemed like they have everything in the street, from food and drink items, fruits and vegetable, and even cooked food. Dry goods such are clothing and footwear are there that also includes household wares. I wonder if the malls in Bangkok are still selling because naturally the street vendors sell cheaper items. One thing that caught our attention is the discipline. First is the trash. The vendors help in curtailing wanton littering. Second is their selling time which they follow strictly. The morning shift ends at 10 am so they close shop and move their things to storage. At 3 pm, another set of vendors would come to pitch their stalls that would last until 10pm. Maybe it is the culture of the Thai that makes them disciplined. That would be impossible to happen here in the Philippines. Illegal street vendors needed to be driven away by the cops and when the cops leave, those vendors are back in the streets.
