Did you know that red is the first color that humans perceive, after black and white? It’s the color that babies see first before any other, and the first that those suffering from temporary color blindness after a brain injury start to see again.

Floating Market Vendor

Dawn to dusk floating market tour at Tha Kha floating market, is one of the most authentic markets in Bangkok. Observe an age-old way of living, ancient ladies in their wooden rowboats selling meals, drinks, household objects, vegetables fruits and fragrant flowers from their gardens.

Most of weathered but polished row boats are lined up along the pier on the canal, smiling but quiet Thai ladies selling their garden bounty. Offering a taste if you like, they are gracious and I expect the last of a breed. The rainy day didn’t dampen their spirits nor their generosity.
