Travel Photo: Floating Dessert Shop

Bangkok is often referred to as the Venice of the East and ample glimpses of it can be seen in and around its various canals that diverge from the Chao Phraya river, the lifeline of Bangkok. The canals function in the same manner as our roads. The only difference being commute takes place on small boats with paddle oars or the motorized long tail boats.

The highlight for a tourist to these canals are the floating markets. On my recent trip to Thailand, I went and paid a visit to the Taling Chan floating market, one of the more easily accessible floating markets from Bangkok. Here one can find vegetable sellers on boats, floating restaurants, floating dessert shops and much more who sell their produce on this part of the canal.
