The next stop after Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, we were told by the tour guide that 30 minutes is allocated to browse and purchase the handicrafts at this center. First and foremost, I stood outside to watch the skillful but emotionless artists crafting the pieces, thereafter into the showroom for a leisurely walk to see the huge collection of wood crafts while being informed by the staff that the small pieces will be neatly packed to carry back whereas the bigger pieces can be shipped to the given address. For a seasonal traveller like me, I definitely was not interested in buying. My house is already like a mini museum with hardly any space on the walls, in fact some of the souvenirs purchased from other countries are just collecting dust. So, just to kill time, I continued walking and came out of the centre to wait for the rest before returning to the hotel.
