First Authentic Thai Floating Market
For the first time an authentic Thai Floating Market will be brought to the UK by the Thai Tourist Board to create a spectacular feature at the 2008 Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (8-13 July 2008). Fifteen boats, filled with an array of Thai goods, including spices, hats, herbs and silks, will be paddled around the long-water to give visitors a true taste of Bangkok’s waterways.

The Thai Tourist Board will recreate a typical market, bringing the authentic Thai boats and an atmospheric Thai house façade over from Thailand. The waterborne vendors will also sell a range of Thai produce, from docked boats, whilst along the bank there will be traditional Thai music and activities, including vegetable community.

Robert Sweet, organiser of the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, RHS, said: “We have never done anything like this at the show before and it promises to be an exceptional, far eastern feature, brimming with ambiance, colour and a bustling atmosphere.

“We’re looking forward to pushing the boat out with the Thai Tourist Board to create a true representation of Bangkok’s floating market with the backdrop of Hampton Court Palace, which is an interesting spectacle in itself.”

For tickets to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, call the ticket hotline on 0870 842 2234 (public line) or 0870 906 3790 (RHS Members). Tickets range from £13.50 to £31 with children aged 5-15 years £5 and under-5’s going free. The show runs from the 8-13 July 2008.
