Near the markets, you can make a boat trip on one of the rivers. Two hours by a private boat costs 300 bath (about 7 euro). You will see a lot about life along the river. The owner of the boat, a friendly lady of about 60, must earn a living this way. She used to make a fair living in the old days, when everything was transported by water, but now almost everybody and everything goes by car.
