REPORT ( 1 )
THE MARKET OF FLOATING
The market is called a floating market because the
trade takes place on boats - in Indonesia they are called
klotok and jukung. This market has existed for over
400 years. In the past, people from inland areas brought
their agricultural produce or handicrafts to sell. They
bartered with people from the coastal areas. Nowadays
people can buy things such as fruit, vegetables,
traditional cakes and even clothes from this 'pasar
terapung'. Another unique feature of these markets is
the time of trading; it begins around 5 a.m. and finishes
at 9 a.m.
