Since we have lived here in Germany I have loved visiting the Christmas markets from the end of November. The big ones such as Frankfurt and Wiesbaden are wonderful but my favourites are the ones in the small towns around us that pop up just for a weekend during Advent and contain all the delicious treats: roasted caramelised almonds, glühwein and wonderful handicrafts and decorations! Here are my favourites.
I have always loved Thai floating markets. There is something about the noise and chaos of the crowds, mixed with the many different things to eat, see and buy that makes it an extremely fun way to spend a day. The floating markets are comprised of canals filled with vendors selling things out of their boats. You can either walk along the side and they will row up to you, or you can hire a boat to take you around for an hour. At famous Amphawa Floating Market, Samut Songkhram and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi has some amazing and unique markets that I was always excited to visit. Although most of them have gotten a bit touristy, they are still such a wonderful experience that they are totally worth a visit once or more! :)
Sam Chuk, an old market town along the Thajeen River in Suphan Buri province, serves as a good example of how a community can contribute to changing the face of a place. The lively town, which is more than a century old, is today a dynamic and charming place to visit.
