Thailand

This lady is selling fresh fruit at Bangkok's Floating Market. One of the most memorable boat-trips in the world is by high-speed long-boat through the canals of Bangkok to visit this market. Along the way one can view other boats, floating residences, unique temples, banana plantations, and, of course, the colourful sellers of fruit and flowers in the market itself.

The views and opinions expressed here are entirely those of the author. They are based on a very short exposure to the country, and as such are coloured by personal biases, impressions and subject to potential inaccuracies of interpretation.
