After stopping at the Maeklong Railway Market, we continued on our day tour with our local guide to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. This floating market is situated about 100km southwest of Bangkok in Ratchaburi province.
The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is flocked with tourists, making it a chaotic yet colourful attraction. Market vendors are on stalled or moving boats, selling a huge range of goods from fruits to soup noodles to handbags and an endless assortment of souvenirs. We take a boat ride along the canals, stopping an amazing noodle boat, spice stalls, as well as witnessing the lifestyle of local villagers living in homes over the waters.
My noodles at the floating market were seriously one of the highlights of the trip! I am still dreaming about them.....
|Our boat would pull up to vendors and we could make purchases. We were only persuaded to take our money out by the spice man! Amazing prices and great spices.....|
|And these would be the origin of the most amazing noodles in Thailand|
|They would give you a bowl and you would leave it in the boat for the boat man to take back to the stall....|
