Bang Khu Wiang

Pratiksha Mohanty
Make sure to visit one of the many floating markets an and around the city. The best option to enjoy a traditional Thai floating market without any touristy push is Bang Khu Wiang. Monks arrive early in the morning on their boats to sell sell fresh veggies and fruits, coconut jaggery, flowers, sea food straight from their farms. Although touristy my first international trip was nothing less than fascinating. Be sure to be kind to the locals there for a lot of them seem to be annoyed with the habit of bargaining of us Indians. Otherwise Thai people can indeed be the kindest of all :)
