The Floating Market In Thailand

Friday, May 25, 2012

My friend June recently came back from a work trip to Thailand. The first thing she said to me was that besides all the mesmerizing views her favourite place to visit was the Damnoen Saduak floating market. It’s a colourful gem hidden near Bangkok.

She was blown away by the concept of transforming such a simple daily activity like selling fruits into one of the most fascinating scenes ever. June described it as a totally colourful, lively place full of buzz that sells fresh fruits, veggies, flowers, drinks and even meals cooked on the spot. The funniest thing she experienced was that all the transactions were done very quickly as you actually shop boat-to-boat and the traffic is out of this world in the early morning hours. You are simply expected to be quick.

Now, I am totally dreaming of spending a morning there too, don’t you? Lovelies, have you been to Thailand before? Would you like to go? xo

P.S: More travel lust.
