The Floating Market ตลาดน้ำ in Mueang Boran

The Floating Market ตลาดน้ำ in Mueang Boran
The floating market at Muang Boran is a reflection of traditional Thai life along the river. The rivers and canals formed an important com mu ni ca tion system that brought about social integration and prosperity to the community. The people on both sides of the river are connected by bridges and walkways surrounding the community. The floating market is an example of perfect social integration. Though the people are dif fer ent in race, religious beliefs and culture, they can live in peace. As we can see, Buddhist temples, Christian churches, Islamic mosques, Chinese spirit houses and even local spirit houses stand in harmony in the same community.
