Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
11th July 2004.
We decided to do a day trip out of Bangkok and visited some floating markets in the morning and a Bridge over the River Kwai in the afternoon.
We couldn't help laugh at this guy protecting his head with a showercap while shovelling dredged-up shit from the canals.
The floating markets were a total tourist trap, as you can see here there are more tourists than locals. They are certainly selling tourist only products not local wears.
Including this fold down flexible hat - you too can have a hat and fan in one! ( We didn't buy it.)
Jason has been stretching his stomach boundaries by eating anywhere and everywhere. The look of pain before eating here was followed a few hours later by trips to the toilet.
More cheese with matching hats.
We were despairing at this point - for 5 dollars you can own a plate with your photo on it. Nice.
Its all too much for this local... and for us to.
