Bangkok Floating Market :Damnoen Saduak

On the third day in Bangkok we went to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. It was such a different experience. You get into banana boats and ride up and down the river to different sales stalls, as well as buy goods and food out of other boats. There was everything, such as hats, fans, food, decorator items and paintings. I swear people even had weird things like Colonix and muscle medicines. .

Emily took some video with her camera so I thought it would be fun to post rather than pictures. As you can tell Chris sure likes to shake his head no at everything people are selling. He is his dad's son.

what do you do if you want to stop and barter with the sellers? Does it stop traffic? That is just crazy!

Good trip in Bangkok for you. From my experience of Bangkok trip. I think that looking for accommodation around Sukhumvit are is the good idea because Sukhunvit is in the heart of the shopping district, both in terms of large department stores and the various stalls lining both sides of the road. The various side-streets provide a proliferation of nightlife venues. For the renowned and well-known spots, you will need to walk onwards past the Asok crossroads to Sukhumvit Soi 21 or Soi Cowboy. This area also offers a wide selection of cuisine to choose from, both in terms of air-conditioned high-end restaurants and open air restaurants offering quite reasonable prices.
