Late Morning Floating Market Klong Lud Mayom Destination : Bangkok Category : Shopping
  •  1252 views

When we talk about floating markets, we generally think of the most popular ones which are Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa. We have to wake up very early if we want to go to Dumnoen Saduak floating market otherwise we will miss it. Amphawa is interesting to see in the late evening. What can we do if we want to go traveling in the afternoon? Are there any floating markets available for me to find some delicious food and have a boat trip?

 

After thinking about this a few minutes, I tried to search for some more information on the Internet. Finally, I got it. There is a late morning floating market which is very near Bangkok. It is on Kachanaphisek road and is called “Klong Lud Mayom floating market”. I saw some pictures about the atmosphere, food, and activities there. So, I made a decision to go there.

 

 

I took about an hour to reach Klong Lud Mayom. This floating market is on Bang Ramat Road separated from Kanchanaphisek Road. When I arrived there, I was surprised by horses walking in front of the entrance of the market. Wow… some tourists were riding the horses and some were in pedal boats. Klong Lud Mayom is divided into two sides of the road. But, we can walk from one to another if we walk along the canal. There are various products for you to see such as vegetables, fruits, OTOP products, handmade products, fresh food, dried food, traditional Thai desserts, trees, flowers, and so on. Frankly, I want to buy everything. ^^

 

 

I walked, shopped, and ate for a while. I stopped at a little pier near the canal. There was a shop selling bread and fish food for just ten baht. So, I made merit by feeding fish there before having a boat trip to see the community along the canal and orchards. It was a very enjoyable trip. Talk to you later. Bye.

Pristine beaches of Coral Islands

Fantastic, thats what I can describe the Coral Islands. Believe!!Gods themselves may came down to earth to have a great time in the white sand beaches present here. Really good place to hang out and the beaches here may be comparable with the best available in the world to the likes of Hawaii, Havelock (Andamans, India), Kovalam (Kerala, India)etc. On the way to coral island from Pattaya, there are ample opportunities for water sports like para sailing (350 baht), deep sea walking (1200 baht) etc. But one annoying thing during my entire time at Thailand is the high cost of everything and it seems Thailand Govt is giving a free hand to the hospitality sector in fleecing the tourists.

Shopping in Thailand

Before embarking in Thailand, we were given good tips by our Indian Travel Agent to be careful about our handbags/purses as there is widespread incidence of snatching/mugging etc in the streets of Thailand. After getting down in Bangkok, our local guide has given some tips which included the kinds of items that can be purchased during the shopping. We were mainly taken to the Indra Market. But to our dismay we found most of the items were overpriced and many shop keepers were very rude and rowdies. Initially when we were strolling in the lanes of Indra market, we found many Indian families fighting with shop keepers. However, when our turn came to do some bargaining during the shopping, we were disappointed with the quarrelsome attitude of the shop keepers. For example, we tried a soap balloon gun (toy) for my daughter, which was offered for 50 baht. Before purchasing I requested the shop owner (lady) to operate and confirm that the piece is perfect. However, it was found that the piece was defective and even after that she was quarrelling with us forcing us to purchase that defective unit. We went to this market for two days; on second day also we had unpleasant experience with respect to the quarrelsome attitude of shop keepers. My wife was so much annoyed that she has sworn never to shop anything from Thailand hereafter due to these type of bad experience as well as high price of most of the commodities (all the commodities sold in indra market are cheaper in Indian market!!). It is also a matter of concern that Thailand Government is having blind eye in encouraging such practices of shop keepers of Indra market (other wise how these people will fleece tourists). All the tourists may beware of the quarrelsome/forcing tactics of shop keepers of Bangkok. Incidentally, we have to admit that shopping was a pleasurable experience in Singapore and Malaysia compared to the painful shopping experience in Thailand. It is high time that Thailand Governement should act practively so that Tourists are not made scape goats at the hands of unruly shop keepers.
