Situated in the middle of Chatuchak, this Spanish paella bar welcomes you with the owner performing some show cooking. Great vibe when trying to escape the hot lunchtime sun. A little overpriced, but what did you expect.

I wasn' too hungry when my husband asked me if I wanted paella at Viva 8. And, eventually, I tasted it a bit from my husband's plate and regretted not ordering it earlier because by that time the paella was over.

Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up
to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an
enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend
Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find
everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and
Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it,
Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great
place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for
