Thailand is known for its floating markets. Hundreds of years ago, the country is mostly watery so people rode on boats instead of buses or cars. Bangkok, in particular, is called “Venice of the East.”
Today we can see replicas of these floating markets. There is one that is closest to Bangkok, but I have not gone there yet. So our visit to Pattaya was the first experience I had with floating markets, although we were not able to ride on those boats.
Shops were built in this man-made river, and many vendors sold their goodies on boats
