12 Best Floating Markets in Bangkok

 
  • 01 Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

    The popular floating market in Ratchaburi, known as Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, is one of Thailand’s largest floating markets. Sellers arrive early in their boats laden with tropical fruits, flowers and other fresh produce, creating an exuberant and vividly colourful scene that has been captured by photographers around the world.



    Highlights
    : It’s best to take a trip early in the morning to see the market at its busiest and most colourful. Hire a long-tail boat and make sure you bring your camera to capture this quintessential
    image of Thailand. It is also worthwhile exploring the nearby canals to gain an appreciation of how the locals live.

    Getting There:  The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is 110 km west of Bangkok, in Ratchaburi province and about 40 minutes by car from Nakhon Pathom.

    If you are in search of a serene green and peaceful getaway in Bangkok, Ko Kret is your destination. An artificial island, which is the result of a canal, dug 300 years  ago, Koh Kret Island is primarily known for its rural atmosphere, busy weekend market and unique pottery. If you really want to enjoy your visit to Koh Kret Island, Wat Poramai Yikawat, the Buddhist temple and museum, the 200?years ? old leaning stupa must be on your ‘to visit’ list. The island is also famous for the hand?thrown terracotta pots. After getting down from the boat, ‘Tort Man Nor Galah,’ a Mon origin snack, is a must try on the Koh Kret island.

    Best Time: The best time to visit the Koh Kret Island is on weekdays, as it can be overly crowded on weekends.

    Location: The Island is just 12 km from the central Bangkok and you can take cross?river ferries from the Wat Sanam Neua.

    Things to keep in mind: Avoid visiting island on weekends.
