Floating market

Our fifth day we took bus to the Damnoen Saduak floating market in Ratchaburi, Thailand. This is one of the most famous floating markets, and a major tourist destination.

The floating market at Damnoen Saduak is the traditional way of selling fruits, vegetables, etc from a small boat. Thai style canoes filled with colorful, succulent fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats, gently ply their way through the canal. The excellent quality soil beside the canal is very fertile and suitable for growing many kinds of fruits and vegetables and the area is famous for Malacca grape, Chinese grapefruit, mangoes, bananas, and coconut.
