Daemon women
Author: Artur Hutnik Blog / 5 April, 2012 / Age: 6 yrs

One of the last five floating markets in Bangkok. Daemon market is unique as it preserved its original shape from the 1860s - it is still the place where the locals live and trade. Here, in one of the canals crowded with hundreds of boats, one can buy juicy mangoes, or try traditional Thai dishes.

Although the market has its own traditions, it has become a major tourist attraction in recent years and has lost some of its authenticity. Tatty souvenirs can be found at almost every stand. Another remarkable feature are the women who run their business along the canals. Although charming, they do not seem authentic either. The female vendors who sail on the boats are incredibly careful to look the part. Women adding final touches to their makeup or doing their hair is a normal part of the scenery.
