Floating Market&Elephant Village (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
A floating market is the place where food is being sold from the river boats, which is a traditional way of trade in Thailand. During the past, water transport has played a major role in Thai everyday life, whereas most floating markets presently serve as a tourist attraction in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. You can rent Your own boat and we recommend that You try sticky rice in bamboo. At the market, You can find ponds with plenty of fish which love being fed by the baby soother. Right across the market, there is an Elephant Village where You can ride, feed and bath the elephants or take pictures with the tigers.
