Journey to the past at Klong Daen
Journey to the past at Klong Daen

Klong Daen is an old floating market in Songkhla Province. Around 50 years ago, it was a very busy place. People still use boats on this klong for transportation (klong means canal and this particular market is a junction for three different canals).

The new generation in Klong Daen community has restored the market and every weekend many tourists come to enjoy it & see interesting shows like the Manorha dance and shadow puppetry.

If you decide to stay longer in Klong Daen you can stay overnight in a home stay serving delicious traditional Thai food. Nipon "Ton" Riabriang is the former Dragon Art Media (nee Artasia) senior photographer.
