Beautiful Photos Of Floating Market

Floating market is one of the most unique tourist objects in Indonesia. It’s located in Banjarmasin city, South Kalimantan. Locals said that Lok Baintan’s floating market is the first floating market in South Kalimantan.

To get there, you can use klotok (motorize wooden boat), car or motorcycle. But the best way to see this unique market is by klotok. There you can see the local farmers and traders making transaction on the river. Commonly, they sold fruits and vegetables…

Magic of colors and flavors in simple floating stands. Ordinary people, in ordinary boats bid their goods, rocking in the weaves. They worry how much they will sell… We can’t decide what leaves better impression: beauty of this unique place, or skillfully taken remarkable landscapes… Women slowly row, probably talk about what to cook, how are they children, what weather will be tomorrow…
