A Floating Market: Khlong Latmayom
Well, you cannot come to Thailand and not see a floating market, that is what a lot of the online guides tell us. So, after some careful research, we decided on one that was not a tourist trap and we were rewarded with a great, very Thai, day out. We saw no other tourists for the whole day which was refreshing – not even a sexpat!
As we both took so many photographs on this day out I thought I could let the pictures mostly tell the story…
There was also cooked food for sale on the shoreline and the boats…
All the sellers/chefs were completely comfortable with sitting next to an open gas flame and a wok of boiling hot fat in an unstable boat.

Finally, Henry gets the prize for ‘best animal picture of the day’ for this lovely goat, taken at a kids farmyard area.
That was our great Thai day out at Khlong Latmayon market, northwest of Bangkok; a highly recommended day trip!
