It is a "Must-See", and probably the goal of the visit of nine tourists, Thailand. Each morning, hundreds of boats on the amount of market. Most of them are women paddled picturesque straw hats. Visitors will find everything from vegetables and fruits cooked pasta and fresh memories of this dynamic market. The best recovery of the floating market is the wish to join a boat trip by the supplier to assess the noise and smells and the sights.
