Amphawa Floating Market

Sunday, 1/15

This morning, Mr. Ving and our driver took us some 60 km southwest of Bangkok to visit the weekend Amphawa floating market.

We thoroughly enjoyed this market, because it is frequented almost exclusively by locals, not tourists. This woman had a canal-side grill and was cooking meat.  It didn't look like Texas BBQ, but it really smelled good!

In addition to food and produce being sold in stalls along the river, there were many people selling meat, vegetables and other goods from their boats. Several were also cooking and serving food from their portable, floating, kitchens.

We opted to sample some fried fish cakes served in banana-leaf bowl. Yum!
