This is a floating market, called “Ngū thale tlād,” meaning Sea Serpent’s Floating Market, located beside the historical remains. The largest temple, “B̂ān k̄hxng mangkr,” is believed as a Dragon’s home from an ancient folktale in the village.

The temple protects what is enshrined as an entrance to the dragon’s home. The ingress is covered with big rocks. Villagers believe that dragons are still alive and blow up fireballs into the sky once a year as a token of human respect.

Today is the day of the fireball festival in the town. People commemorate this special day in the year. Guests will sink into the atmosphere of the festival as soon as they step into the village. There are many things to do. Visitors can enjoy Thailand’s cuisine or shop the original souvenirs. Guests can watch a traditional Thailand show at the temple’s stage.

 

In addition, they can join a VIP tour heading to the enshrined entrance. At the end of the day, guests can witness the famous fireball that appeared from the water.

Site Plan

3. Site Plan with detail.jpg

The land can be divided into three different areas. Those are the visitor center, the floating market, and the temple. Placements of each section are chosen based on the consideration of guest flow.

The visitor center welcomes and hosts the main boat attraction. Guests walk through Thailand’s traditional gardens and watch a shadow play.

 

The floating market is located in the middle part. The area is a replication of the famous hectic market in Thailand. In the market, guests can find things to eat or to take home anytime they go there.

The main winnie of the area is the large enshrined temple. The boat of the attraction comes out through the building. Also, the stage is adjacent to it. 
The color pallet of this area differs from the rest of it.
