Damnoen Saduak floating market

Floating market

"The picture was taken on the Damnoen Saduak floating market in Thailand, located about 100 km south-west of Bangkok. It is a very touristic place, and one has to be careful not to be scammed. Most things sold there are souvenirs, drinks, food etc. for tourists, not for local people. I am sorry to say this, but there are other floating markets in the Bangkok area, which offer a more genuine market atmosphere and where you can see and meet a lot of local people. Despite these negative aspects I think it is well possible to take some interesting pictures on the Damnoen Saduak floating market."
