2. Shop at Floating Markets

The floating market is an iconic weekly event where locals and visitors alike gather to barter for produce, spices and an assortment of goods. Grab your camera and snap some shots of the colorful affair while you sample the huge variety of tasty fruit being sold. The Damnoen Saduak market in Ratchaburi is one of the most famous floating markets and is a little over 60 miles south of Bangkok. The Taling Chan in Bangkok is open every weekend and is a truly authentic floating market with more locals than tourists.
