Thailand

My first official card from Thailand



It shows a Floating Market....this is the first time ive actually heard of an existence of something as a Floating Market. Looks as something interesting, though i wonder what happens when there is a lot of traffic and the boats get stuck....there are no signs, no traffic lights....can get quite hectic.

As i have read, these floating markets are a feature of the Thai Culture and the rural life and most of them are concentrated in Bangkok....im just not sure where this Floating Market is...the sender says its about 190km or 1.30 hour drive....but doesnt say where from.....she surely didnt want to say that the market itself is 190km long!! Or she did?
