Starting as early as 04.00 am, the floating market  is the place to see the traffic of all kinds of boats laden with bananas, shrimps, fish, yams, spinach, coconut, incandescent spices and chilies, buckets of fuzzy rambutans, and whatever other fruit are in season. Maneuvering their boats with dexterity and precision, since the boats are constantly wobbled by the river’s waves,  traders exchange goods and money. This unique frenzy is usually over by 09.00 am.
