Klong Lat Mayom Floating marketJanuary 19 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C
We had a wonderful morning of relaxing with a late pick up at 10:30 for the floating market. Our driver was named kittichat but he asked we call him Boat, which was a good chuckle because he was going to be out boat tour guide. After 30 minute drive we arrived at the market and boarded our paddle boat. Quite happy to be on this type of boat because as we were waiting, a long boat steamed by at high speed into the market for another tour company. Not sure how you get a good tour at high speed 😳. Another advantage of the slower boat was that were got to go through a lotus field which was truly just breath taking!
We were taken through narrow water ways, seen how some of the locals lived and even were fortunate enough to see a water lizard!
Once our tour was complete on the water we entered the market by foot to see all the food sold and created there. Of course, once done touring we all chose different items to try and share. The heat was so stifling that we shared a few beers to cool off.Read more
