Floating Market

Floating Market

The floating market is located at the mouth of Khlong Bang Khu Wiang, Amphoe Bang Kruai. It takes about 10 minutes by boat to go to this floating market from Amphoe Bang Kruai. The floating market starts around 5.00 a.m. every day, and finishes when the sun is hot, shortly before mid-day. Sellers bring a large variety of fruits, vegetables and foods along in their small rowing boats. Monks also come in rowing boats and the people will present food to them. The floating market offers pictures of Traditional Thai life scarcely seen nowadays.
