Thailand’s Floating Markets Serve Up a Feast on the Water

For hundreds of years, floating markets have been at the center of communities in Thailand. Originally built along canals and rivers, the markets emerged during a time when water transport played an important role in daily life. Today, one of the country’s most popular is the Amphawa floating market.

In a country that prides itself on the freshness of its food, Yoshimoto has set a new standard for readymade fare.
