Life Along Thailand's Canals
23 images Created 10 Jul 2011
The Thai countryside south of Bangkok is crisscrossed with canals, some large enough to accommodate small commercial boats and small barges, some barely large enough for a small canoe. People who live near the canals use them for everything from domestic water to transportation and fishing. Some, like the canals in Amphawa and nearby Damnoen Saduak are also famous for their "floating markets" where vendors set up their canoes and boats as floating shops.
