Paew Floating Market Dumnoen Sakuak

The main part of todays outing was to see the floating markets. We got into a boat with a huge motor on the back and went for a cruise around the canals. We finished our cruise at the floating markets. The markets used to be where the farmers would sell their produce. Today its just for the tourists.

Most of the things for sale are in the buildings next to the canal, but you can still buy some things from the boats.

One woman was cooking coconut pancakes. We tried them. Very sweet.

After the tour it was time to return to our hotel. Thanks to Bangkok traffic this took hours. In the end we left our tour minivan and caught the sky train to the station near our hotel as it was quicker.
