Access to the market can be made from the landward side. We walked through the market to get to the boats.

Most spices that I’d heard of were available, so we bought various packages.

The only way to calm down in a traffic jam in Thailand – the Singha beer was cold!

Once free of the jam we cruised away from the market to see how some Thai people lived.

 I know the floating market can be ‘touristy’, but it is worth the effort, and we enjoyed the trip.
