floating market, Thailand

สวัสดี เพื่อน!

A great card from Thailand! Thank you Stephen!

floating market is a market where goods are sold from boats. Originating in times and places where water transport played an important role in daily life, most floating markets operating today mainly serve as tourist attractions, and are chiefly found in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. Damnoen Saduak floating market in Ratchaburi, Thailand, is one of the most famously known floating markets, and a major tourist destination.

Floating market at Damnoen Saduak is the old traditional way of selling vegetables, fruits,etc. from a small boat.
