Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Damnoen Saduak Ratchaburi Thailand
There are numerous floating markets in Bangkok but Damnoen Saduak floating market is the main floating market, although it is largely for tourists. It is best to take a boat through the labrynth of narrow canals, filled with wooden row boats and vendors selling fruit, vegetables, flowers, spices, straw hats and snack food. The market is located around 62 miles southwest of Bangkok and it is best to visit between the hours of 7am and 9am. It is an experience worth the touristy hype.
Thai Song Dam Cultural Center Khao Yoi Phetchaburi Thailand
I'm at the Thai Song Dam Cultural Centre in the Petchaburi Province and this new day begins with the sound of flute, dance and numerous performances by the people of the Laos Song tribe. The people of the tribe are here to share with us their classic tribal recipes, artwork and give us a firsthand experience of their lifestyle and everyday routine. The Lao Song tribe is the section of people who migrated from Laos and who have kept their traditions alive through hundreds of years.
