There are a few of these enterprising guys and gals paddling their little boats around selling food. It's a great way to try some local cuisine and the food is tasty! There are some tables set up to accomodate you too. The food is very inexpensive.
You can really enjoy the foods from the boat vendors! If you don't speak any Thai just point to the ingredients that you want and they will whip it up for you!! Very Inexpensive! The people are very friendly. Just try to speak a little Thai and that will break the ice! Everyone will be laughing but it's all fun!
