I went Thailand with my friends and family for holiday in December 2012.
After a long month of national exam, the SPM, we finally had a chance to relieve from the stress.
We all know Bangkok is a good place to go for shopping and delicious food, but besides shopping, there are also some interesting tourist spots.
This is the Maeklong Railway Market, it become famous for its route through the Maeklong Railway Market. It is one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand, and is centered around the Maeklong Railway’s track. Whenever a train approaches, the awnings and shop fronts are moved back from the rail, to be replaced once the train has passed.
when the train is not approaching the station, umbrellas are pulled down.
when train is approaching, umbrellas are folded up.

It’s one of the unique and interesting tourist attraction in Thailand.
Next, the floating market. A floating market is a market where goods are sold from boats. Originating in times and places where water transport played an important role in daily life, most floating markets operating today mainly serve as tourist attractions.
as you can see, the floating market is packed with tourists.

Well, Thailand is really an interesting country that it is actually one of my favorite country. Thailand is often called the “land of smiles,” not only because visitors love its natural beauty and historical riches, but also because of the country’s friendly people and fascinating culture. In everyday life in Thailand, there is a strong emphasis on the concept of sanuk’; the idea that life should be fun. Because of this, Thai can be quite playful at work and during day-to-day activities.
Hope to see you again soon, Thailand!
