Talad Rot Fai Market

Thai people and tourists both like shopping and eating. That’s why you can find markets all around Thailand. Like every other world metropolis city Bangkok has many different markets. Especially in the weekends and during the evening. The Talad Rot Fai market in Bangkok is a outdoor night market held on weekend days. The market area is behind the huge Seacon Square Shopping Mall (Srinagarindra Rd – Soi Srinagarindra 51). Vintage, classic second hand items and retro style items are just like in most western countries very popular. The Rot Fai market is specialized in these items. The items are sold in the open air and also in real antique boutiques and walk in shops. Besides these top quality 2nd hand stuff you can also buy new stuff. Food is served as streetfood or in restaurants. Some of these restaurants have live music bands. The market area is very specious and feels not busy or overcrowded.

Tortuga Backpacks

Tortuga Backpacks are designed by two travel veterans. After a backpack journey they noticed that all backpacks and other bags and suitcases have their own advantages and their own disadvantages. They decided to develop their own backpack. Main feature is that you can open the backpack in the same way as a suitcase. This makes the backpack more suitable for travelling. Most backpacks are designed more for hiking than for travelling and open therefore from the top.

They don’t sell their products in physical shops but on-line only.

After a little research it turned out that Osprey also has a backpack what can be opened from the front instead of the top. Their backpack is called the Osprey Porter 46. The following youtube movie compares these two.
