As promised, this week’s blog will focus on the fabulous FOOD we found at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Bangkok. Imagine packing everything you need for a day of work in your canoe — including huge pots of hot oil, perfectly balanced stacks of fruits and vegetables, and all the makings of a wonderful bowl of soup. Everything made and served from the canoe. Truly a “waterfront” dining experience!
While the smell of fried bananas (served hot straight from the paddle) made our mouths water — it was the soup we picked for lunch. The bananas would have to wait for dessert! (and they were DELICIOUS!)
You pick the ingredients!
Fruits and veggies tempted…we wanted to try them ALL!
How could anyone resist these??
And so much looked good, even if we couldn’t identify it!
Every boat held a treasure of delights! If you visit the Floating Market bring your appetite and your courage — it will be worth every tasty bite!
Thanks to Beth Whitman and her fabulous WanderFood Wednesdays!
Sensory overload! We’ve entered a world of Thai floating fruit stands, souvenir shops, Mom and Pop restaurants, flowers, and masses of humanity all situated on tiny canals filled with smells, colors, and sounds guaranteed to intoxicate the senses.
There is so much to see! This post focuses on some of the FACES of the Dumnoen Saduak Floating Market in Bangkok. The next post will showcase the fabulous FOOD we found there.

They call the island of Kauai, Hawaii “The Garden Isle”. We would call it “Island of Wonder”!
From massive canyons cut deep into the earth to spectacular soaring vistas of waterfalls and cliffs, this island paradise welcomes and enchants. A short twenty minute cheap flight from Oahu and we stepped out into a different world.
A world where endangered Hawaiian geese called “NeNe” walk up and carry on a conversation…
Or a fuzzy baby Wedge-Tailed Shearwater stares sleepily from his in-ground burrow…
Where spinner dolphins guide your boat into calmer waters…
And best of all, it’s a place where you can swim free with the spirits of the sea…
Kauai…a magical place!
