One thing you’ll discover as a traveler to Southeast Asia is that the region is filled with thounds of markets. At first, they feel unique and vibrant. But after a while they all start to look the same same, but different (which is a shirt you will see at every other stall in every single market across that part of the continent.)
There are not many places in the world where you can sit on a wooden sampan at the Break of dawn, while monks in saffron-colored robes paddle past and dock beside storefronts and water crafts to pray with the Buddhist faithfuls.
Most of the boats in the floating market are captained by women who sit beside massive gas tanks that power their stoves. The Pad Thai lady spooned spices and sauces into her sizzling wok. The coconut pancake lady paddled up alongside my boat and filled a banana leaf basket with her fried dessert.
Bananas, pomelos, pineapples, and straw hats overflowed from their wooden crafts.
