Sawadika 3

Part of our day tour package had an hour long boat ride among the waterways of residential cum commercial lines. The following pictures tells a lot about this unique way of living. 

Waterways are marked exactly as roads. So you won't have difficulty in finding someone's house.

Houses have mail boxes where mail is delivered via river mail service.

Boat taxis roam in these water streets same as taxis on roads.

Boats are allowed only during the day time as their engines are very noisey and disturb people in the evenings. 

My guide told me that on Sundays these waterways are filled with vegetable, fruit and flower sellers also lot's of mobile restaurants operate.

By the time our boat trip ended, we were starving. So we headed towards a Thai restaurant.
