May 16, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

What is the sweet treat that best represents Bangkok? The iconic mango sticky rice, known locally as the khao niew mamuang, is undoubtedly the answer. Bangkok, also nicknamed the “Big Mango”, is a city that has arguably some of the best mangoes in the world. Each year, hundreds of thousands of mangoes – green and yellow, ripe and raw – are consumed in this city – in salads, sweets, snacks and much more. During the mango season between April and June, the entire city is filled with the sweet aroma of mangoes. Locals and tourists can easily find the juiciest mangoes in restaurants, supermarkets, and even, street stalls and wet markets. Here are two recommended spots for the freshest mangoes in downtown Bangkok:

Mae Varee

Located within the Thonglor area of Bangkok, Mae Varee is famous for its mango sticky rice. Open until 23:00, the shop offers a wide variety of mangoes of different sizes and price ranges, making it a must-go spot for tourists looking at souvenirs to bring home.

Khlong Toei Fresh Market

Khlong Toei Fresh Market is the biggest wet market in Bangkok and the one most visited by locals. Reachable via the MRT, visitors will find numerous fruit stalls selling mangoes and other fresh fruit at prices lower than those at the supermarket chains.

After a day of mango hunting around the city, guests are invited by ONYX Hospitality Group to enjoy a good night’s rest at one of its properties situated within the Big Mango, or even, to take the mango journey to the next level.
