Monday Moment: Bangkok Floating Market

07.November 2011

Monday Moment, Thailand

Bangkok is suffering from some devestating flooding this season and many parts of the city probably look just like this.

This is from the Bangkok Floating Market just outside the city though. A place where life and commerce regularly exists on the water. Boats are used for transportation, to provide services and as store fronts.

I loved thinking of young boys getting their first boat instead of their first moto and of all the hiding places that kids must have. Such a different way of life from what I knew growing up.

    It’s sad to think that most of the markets in Bangkok are probably floating right now… :(
