The colorful Damnoen Saduak floating market is a true icon of Thai tourism. The image is so evocative that it's become an ad agency favorite. Today the market, which sells mostly produce and other foods, has taken on a bit of the Disneyland effect, as it is often infested with tourists and bears only passing resemblance to the authentic commercial life of this canal-strewn corner of Thailand. On
the other hand, even though it feels a bit like a theater production, this is one of the few opportunities to witness a fading Thai tradition.
