A fun longboat ride through a very crowded floating market. The powerboats bully their way through the traffic as you visit vendors along the water and also get visited by boats selling food and wares also. Lots of color and fun.

I went to see the Floating market outside Bangkok City. The first stop to see some coconuts and how they make products from coconuts. It was interesting. Went on small speed boat to see the market. They sell products on the boats such as Thai fruit and veg. Lots of things to buy
