Fishmonger by Ryszard Wierzbicki

The Amphawa Floating Market is one of the most popular floating market in Thailand and not yet overrun by tourists. The Market is located approximately 50 kilometers southeast of Bangkok and takes place on a small canal of the Mae Khlong River. It opens every weekend from 12.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. So you don’t need to get up early to visit this market. It’s best if you arrive around 3.00 p.m. The most stalls are along the canal and you can stroll along those. You can take a coffee break, eat a snack and enjoy the atmosphere there. It is so colorful and full of activities that every Photographer could find many subjects for shooting or recording.
