Thai Lady paddling down Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

A Thai lady paddles her boat filled with goods down the floating market at Damnoen Saduak, Thailand.  This is a travel photo from Damnoen Saduak.

My most recent daily adventure travel photo is of a Thai lady paddling her boat filled with goods down the touristic floating market at Damnoen Saduak, Thailand.  One can only imagine how many years this lady with a distinct face has been paddling down this very market.  I’m sure she’s seen massive changes along the years.  Once a local market catering for Thais is now very much a touristy attraction.  I’m not entirely how I feel about the experience.  On the one hand, as a travel photographer, this is a treasure trove of an opportunity to snap some impressive candid photos; however, this is far from being an authentic Thai market.  This place has long since lost its identity.  This is a travel photo from Damnoen Saduak floating market.  To view my entire travel image collection from Damnoen Saduak floating market click on the Thai lady above.

    Pretty awesome shot! I like how you’ve captured the lady’s face like she was really thinking deep. I’ve been to the that market on our vacation last February, and the experience was really amazing. I didn’t get the courage to take photos while on the boat- can’t risk the cam. lol. 🙂

  • I’ve never seen a floating market before! I am so clumsy, I’d probably fall in… Or at least knock a few things into the water. Either way = bad news!
