Photo Essay : Memorable pictures from the delightful Damnoen Saduak floating market near Bangkok
The floating markets of Bangkok are a photographers delight. As well as being colorful, they offer a wonderful glimpse into the traditional market practices of the river dwelling Thai.

Yes, the markets are commercialized for the benefit of the tourists. But in doing so, they have not lost their original charm, they remain quintessentially Thai, as the below photos will show.

I visited the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, located some 80km southwest of Bangkok. It is the most popular of all the floating markets around Bangkok, hence also the most touristy. But still, i found the experience to be authentic and managed to have a wonderful time.

Just another wandering soul trying to find my place in the world. After over 10 years working behind computers, I quit my job to follow my passions. To travel to and photograph the most beautiful and remote corners of the world. I created Kettik as a platform for travelers to showcase their travels to the world.
