Floating Market, Damnoen Saduak. Thonburi, Thailand

The "Venice of the East". The klongs (canals) are really a artery where trade are conducted. Though now very much tourist-orientated. The Floating Mkt in Damnoen Saduak, Thonburi, is original & genuine unlike another nearer Bangkok, which is set up just for tourists. But be prepared to wake up early at 5am for the 2 hour bus trip from your Bangkok hotel to this real McCoy. Have a cool coconut drink, snack on the lovely Thai desserts, book a motor boat ride but be careful of the pressure selling of albums, knick knacks when your boatman pull alongside shops on stilts on the riverbank. ....Good for a 3 hours sojourn. Sawadee Khrup!
