The floating markets of Bangkok offer some of the most interesting and unique shopping opportunities anywhere in the world. Travelling to these bustling hubs and perusing all the wares on offer is not an experience you won’t want to miss out on!
The DamnoenSaduak is one of the largest and oldest floating markets in the city. It showcases a vibrant display of colour and vendors constantly flash fresh fruits and produce to onlookers. Being massively popular, this market tends to get quite crowded, so keep that in mind if you intend to visit it.
The Amphawa Floating Market is also popular with both the locals and tourists alike. It is found about 90 kilometres away from Bangkok’s city centre. The market is renowned for the massive variety of sweets and snacks on offer, so be sure to satisfy your sugary cravings while you’re there.
The Taling Chan is one of the floating markets that’s relatively close to Bangkok’s central region. It is in fact only a short drive away from most major hotel apartments in Bangkok – such as the Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok. It is open all day and has a plethora of boat riding vendors for you to purchase goods from.
The Kha is one of the smallest and most secluded floating markets found in Bangkok. This is in large part due to the large forest coverage that surrounds the area. This also means that large crowds are rare at the car, allowing you to indulge in the atmosphere of an authentic floating market.
