Floating Market in Ratchaburi
By far the most popular attractions in Ratchaburi are its three floating markets: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Amphawa Floating Market and Tha Kha Floating Market. Floating markets, which were once common in the Central Region of Thailand which has lots of canals, had largely disappeared by the 1960s. However, in the 1970s Damnoen Saduak Floating Market was promoted by the Tourist Authority of Thailand as a tourist attraction and has grown since then to become very popular with both foreign and Thai visitors. There are now many floating markets in Thailand, however, the largest and best floating markets are still the ones in Ratchaburi Province.
