The Dannenshado Water Fair is two hours away from Bangkok. It is located on the Mekong River without traffic jams. The name of the river is the same as that of the Mekong River in Vietnam, but the tour guide said they are two different rivers. Traders on riverbanks and in wooden boats carrying goods in the water shout to visitors sitting in wooden boats passing by to buy their goods. Most of the goods are fruits and other food, as well as small commodities. Those small things with Thai characteristics, the water market is very lively, the level of sailors is very high, and even among them there are seventy or eighty-year-old ladies. I saw an old lady laughing and controlling her boat. She had only one tooth left in her mouth. She admired them very much and lived a long and healthy life.
Thailand owns a Mekonan River running through the country, which enriches the water system conditions in the country. As a result, many water markets, originally for local people to trade with each other, have become a landscape. After that, shops on both sides of the river specialize in selling tourism products, mainly for tourists. Spend 150 baht on the side of the dock and offer two boat rides. First, take a boat by hand and circle around the water shop for about half an hour. The boaters will stop in front of some shops, but most of them have no desire to shop, because the time is too short, so they are too busy to shop. After rowing by hand, we can take a motor boat to the surrounding water villages. Along the way, we can see some residents and living environment. About half an hour later, another place will be ashore, and there will be cars waiting for the next trip. Overall, it feels good. It's worth seeing.
Interestingly, I was curious to see the water market in Thailand on TV before I came to Thailand. Experience is good, the participants come, do not know whether there are tickets, but the distance is long, the participants are more convenient, the tour guide is also very caring, will recommend delicious. In fact, it has become a place for pure tourists, many of whom sell things. The water quality is not very good, but the experience of slow boat + fast boat is very good.
Very exciting with taking boat on a long way and stopping at market along the way. You can buy beautiful handcraft things ans tast with local food.
Unexpectedly, the price of tourist attractions is not expensive. And eat a lot, not eat. Cantonese radish cake 10 Thai coins. Cheese baked radish cake, 16 Thai dollars. Thailand produces red wine in Thai currency 169. And thailand's sea salt. Make your own snowbar. Seeing the red chicken at the door, the seafood by the side is good. Some people introduce it fresh. There are many places to eat seafood, but the weight is relatively small and not very fresh, so it would be better to go to the shop. There are many shops that are both Chinese and Western and have air conditioning. Thai specialties you expect should be available. There will also be many surprises worth going to. I'll go again next time I have a chance. But compared with Pattaya's water market. Pattaya has red and green arrows under the ground indicating entrances and exits. But there is no one in Thailand, and it's easy to get lost when crossing a bridge.
We went with a one-day tour group, which is a local tour guide. Its members are basically Chinese who travel freely in Thailand. The Dannen Shadow Water Market is far from Bangkok. The journey is about two hours a way. When we enter the market, we take an electric boat. A boat can take six people, not including boat owners. There are daily necessities, clothing, food, boats and boats in the market. We bought coconut ice-cream in the market, which we missed and wanted to eat. There are also many fruit sellers. We regret not buying Sakya fruit to taste. If you want to buy something, you can tell the boatman that he will stop the boat and come near the vendor to let you buy it. If you don't say that, the boat will sail normally and will not stop. It's interesting that there are traffic policemen in the water market to direct traffic.
The river water is dirty. It doesn't matter if you don't need to go swimming in the river anyway. It's suggested to experience it slowly by hand. Electric boats have a lot of noise and exhaust gas, and they can't go anywhere quickly. Aquatic market sells cheaper things, fruits and other things can be bought, some people may feel dirty eating, mind painting to buy a water, before ordering something, communicate with the owner, the bowls and chopsticks water, anyway, I don't mind, gutter oil fake milk powder has come. As for arts and crafts, they are almost not bought everywhere. Take them with you if you like, and come out to play or go to battle lightly. It's nothing to play with. It's a long way to go, but the local conditions and customs are interesting. It's worth visiting. What's the suggestion?
When I arrived at the water fair at 10 a.m., I heard the tour guide said that the shop would close at 11 a.m., and the goods would be less. We ride in a hand-rocking boat, slowly and comfortably, but we must do a good job of sun protection, because we have no roof, about 40 minutes, some shops around, which is not high in the price of goods, much more expensive than the night market, bargaining 1/3 you should all know.
It's a very interesting and local attraction. Because of the long journey and the fact that the minibus station has moved away from the Victory Monument, it's a waste of time to go to Dennshado to take a minibus, so it's cost-effective to buy a half-day group of 881 people with the American attack market. Hand rowing is in the market. Electric boats feed fish by the lake. The food in the market is very cheap. Especially mango and glutinous rice. 50 baht is really cheap and delicious.
The group went on the first day and started at 6:10. As a matter of fact, it was right to start early. There were not many people at ten o'clock. At eleven o'clock, all the other guests came in. The boat was stuffed with mango, glutinous rice and roast pork neck. Although they were all roadside stalls, they were cleaner than domestic ones. It's good. You can come in one morning.
