9. SLICES OF THAI PLEASURES - Apart from that the palace and rose garden are worth a visit, along with the usual floating market tour, watching a Calypso cabaret show at the Asiatique and splurging on a ringside seat at a fantastic Muay Thai tournament. The cabaret show had been pleasant with dazzlingly beautiful lady boys mimicking Cher and with a glass of champagne, it had seemed more heady. The floating market trip inclides a nice morning of cruising down the waterways, taking in its colourful bustle and digging into some really good food sold by made up ladies in bamboo hats, from boats. Although touristy, Damnoen Saduak floating market was one of the nicest things I had done in Bangkok. Inspired by the floating market, I had explored the Thonburi klongs by boat and had fallen in love with Klong Mon. Quaint, charming and way much sweeter than Bangkok, bathing children, lilac hyacinths, silent monks, mobile shops and stilted wooden homes had completed its picturesque beauty.
