Time for another boat ride on the canals.
This time we are going to Damneon Saduak Floating Market in Bangkok. We love boats and markets.
The canals and rivers are used as highways and we love it.
At the market we did a little shopping, mom purchased packages of spices. As we have mentioned, Bangkok gets hot. We stopped for a Diet Coke and watched the activity on the canal. But wait.
What is this? Oh, a monitor lizard. Our guide said they are common here. Well, he is not common in Colorado. But I like to see him–from a distance. A little more shopping.
This wooden coffee table is beautiful. As you can guess, we did not buy it. How to get it to Colorado?? The dresses are very nice also. There are so many beautiful things here.
It is nice to be able to shop and watch the canal activity. And see more shopping across the canal. We bought a few souvenirs and more scarves. Still very hot, so time for another Diet Coke.
Guess we are not the only ones that are hot. This Pomeranian dog has the best place in the market. When we finished our refreshments, the dog was out of the cooler and relaxing on the floor by his humans. So no problem.
Sitting with our beverages, we enjoyed the canal activity. Things here are so close together and so busy. But it is relaxing and enjoyable also.
Back on the bus, our guide has a little surprise for us.
These little bananas are so sweet and the bottle of water is perfectly chilled. Another great experience in Bangkok. We loved our time in Bangkok, but we must go to our rooms, pack, and get ready for our next destination.
Love the canals. When I visited Thailand a couple from Aspen bought a table and had it shipped home. Wonder what that cost.
Probably more than the trip. But the wooden tables etc are so gorgeous. But also rather large. Love them.
So cool that the highways are water! That little dog chillin’ in the cooler is so cute.
I love the canals and boat travel. I have never seen a dog in a cooler, but he was happy and didn’t stay in too long. He was so adorable.
I’ve done a cruise through the floating markets too. There’s so much to see. I’m looking forward to seeing your next destination.
I love the floating markets. Every time seems a little different but love people watching and seeing items that are really unusual.
