Pull Up A Seat In Thailand

It’s time again for XingfuMama’s Pull Up A Seat Challenge.

This week, I found some photos of places to sit in Thailand. A trip to Bangkok wouldn’t be complete without a trip to one of its floating markets. We were collected from our riverside hotel by boat and taken on a ‘shopping’ tour.

Fruit and vegetables were in plentiful supply at the market and the locals also shop there.

A great variety of goods are sold from boats and as we floated along, our boatman stopped off at many of these well-stocked booths where everything you could imagine in the way of tourist souvenirs was on offer at good prices.

Exploring the Khlongs and canals in Bangkok is done on one of the long-tail boats which are like tuk-tuks on water. The wooden seats are not the most comfortable, but my sit-upon survived the almost two hour tour and the scenery was so interesting.

In Patong I spotted these guys seated on the back of a truck advertising the Thai Boxing Stadium, a visit to which unfortunately was not included in our itinerary,Β  Muay Thai is a traditional form of full contact kickboxing that utilizes kicks and punches as well as elbow and knee strikes, so definitely no sitting down involved. I think it would be quite fascinating to watch though whilst seated at a safe distance.

  2. πŸ˜‚ Tuktuk on water! What a creative way of describing it.
    The floating market is on my bucket list ever since I watch a Philippines movie that included the place. It’s looks so fun!
    Oh and have you try Thai Mango rice? They’re super delicious. πŸ˜‹ It’s one of my father and son’s favorite desserts.

  3. Not sure I would enjoy watching Muay Thai kickboxing – even if seated – ha.
    And enjoyed your culture rich post today with the pull up a seat theme πŸ˜‰

  4. My visit to Bangkok was many years ago and now I’m sorry a missed trip to floating markets by boat. Good to go cruising with you, Sylvia. πŸ™‚
