It's a long weekend here, we just want to go somewhere for a day trip. We decided to go visiting a brand new floating market in the Northeast! It's about an hour drive from Korat. Here we are! The floating market is in wide area with a little lake in the middle. It's not really a floating market in my opinion but still a lovely place to spend few hours with family. Although it's not a real floating market, not even close but I still enjoyed my time there. Most visitors are family group. There's a small fun park to keep all those kids busy while parents doing some shopping. The floating market is 2 kms off from main highway no.2 in Pak Chong District and Pak Chong is around 80 km. from Korat downtown.

Nam Phut (thai word) is natural water spring up from the underground becomes a stream that flows down to irrigate orchards. The water is emerald color really!, crystal clear particularly the area that's not allow to swim. I've been there in the long weekend, too much visitors. I couldn't enjoy much the beautiful sight. The area of Nam Phut in Pak Chong is located near Moo-See Police Station, the place is around 2-3 km from Thanarat Road (at km remark 14-15). It's quite difficult to find the place as there's no road sign show the direction.
