Bangkok's Floating Markets....

The most populars are outside of the city a short minibus trip away....



In the old days ladies brought their boats full off produce and vegetables to sell... nowadays because of the tourists the merchandise is mostly souvenirs...



Tourist boats traffic Jam ahead....



I guess you can still buy some food from the boat ladies...
