Fruit seller in the floating market on the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok, Thailand

With the encroachment of boutiques the famous floating market on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok is no longer what it used to be. The Wat Sai Talat on Thonburi hardly floats at all. Still, women in blue smocks and straw hats sell fruits and flowers from boats, here durian (Durio zebethinus}. Cultivated only in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, it is considered an aphrodisiac in Southeast Asia.
