bangkok 2007 - damnoen saduak floating market
Sunday, February 25, 2007
our last big touring day was saved for the damnoen saduak floating market. located about 70 miles south of bangkok in ratchaburi, the damnoen saduak floating market is the largest and most popular market if its kind. we arrived at the market at around 9am and rented a traditional paddle boat (instead of those noisy motorized longboats) for the tour. we leisurely floated along the different canals, sampling fruits, eating boat noodles, drinking fresh coconut juice, and shopping for souvenirs. oh, there's some sweet taco's over there babe! we got to stop and get some (but will you share?)! back at the dock, we took photos with the monster pet python (over 100 lbs) and enjoyed some tea before driving back.
that evening we enjoyed a 2-hour dinner cruise on the chao phraya river with family after a short stop at klong-tom market to check out some top-grade fake watches (i almost got that panerai!). i love these long endless days...
