Floating market in Thailand!


Last March I went to the Thailand Floating Market with my family and it was a first time experience for me. 

This is the beginning of the stream to the market. You can see houses built along the manmade drain that leads to the market. I even recorded several videos for this! 


The people here sell produces like coconuts, vegetables, fruits and even hawker style food on boat! On the sides, there are sovenirs, clothes, paintings, arts and locally made Thailand products!

Coconuts!
Row row row your boat!


We arrived at a centre where demonstration of how coconut sugar are made and even bought some coconut sugar back! It can be used in coffee, desserts and cooking! 





Souvenirs! 


Playing with the sugar! Stirring actually. 
My Bro insist that he wants to have his picture taken with the cat!
Watches and bracelets 

Child's play
Looks antique but guess what? Bulb inside!
I love this mirror tuk-tuk






Along the market, most of the vendors selling similar souvenirs. There are spices for cooking on sale too!

I believe this is the central place for the market. Lots of food along the way
There're even a boat service!

Noodles anyone? You can order your food and eat as you go.

That's it! The experience is not bad as not as cheap for the fare but worth it!
