The floating markets of Bangkok
Bangkok, Thailand's capital is a city of contrasts. The tall glass buildings look like any other city, but behind them is a place where there are canals. these channels are home to many Thai people who live and work today. There are four floating markets around Bangkok andthe oldest and most popular in the city of Damnoen Saduak. Huge old ladies in hats sittingin small boats, full of tropical fruits and vegetables, fresh coconut juice and local food.
A perfect day in Provence
Every Sunday in a small town called Isle-sur-la-Sourge in southern France there is a truly amazing market. From early morning, this sleepy little town turns into a noisy, busy, with vendors calling to sing with a southern accent. You can choose from an amazing selection of olives, cheeses and hundreds of delicious roasted chickens. It is not just a food market.Antique dealers fill the sidewalks with beautiful antique furniture and old French, and tables are covered with antique lace and fabric. Guests fill their backpacks with goodies forSunday lunch: bread, olive oil, tomato, ham, melon, and of course, a bottle of local rosé wine.

The souks of Marrakech
Marrakech in Morocco looks like a Hollywood movie set. It is a city of ancient, sand-colored buildings and palm trees in the middle of the desert. In the center is the main square, Jemaa el Fna. Here you can see snakes dancing and Moroccan coffee. But behind the square is the heart of the city. Hundreds of small shops and stalls are open from morning until lunchtime, and again at night.  There is the spice souk, the noise of meat souk, the colorful bazaar of clothes, gold and silver souk, and many more. Finally, there is carpet souk. Here, hundreds of Moroccan rugs and handmade carpets covered the sidewalks.
