The idea of visiting the floating market in Bangkok was originally scrapped when I found out it wasn't in the city of Bangkok but in the province of Ratchaburi, about an hour and a half on the bus from the capital. However I found myself in a travel agent and asked for the price for a day / morning trip there. With a free day available and it costing only £9 I thought it would be rude not too.
As regular visitors will know I really enjoy photographing markets and this was the best I have been to so far. The above photograph was taken from a speed boat on the canals near the market. I am sure to be sharing more market photographs as soon as possible but in the meantime I felt this is one of my favourite portraits from the market and wanted to share it as soon as possible.
