2015 Floating Market (Thailand)
5 Floating Markets Around Bangkok
Almost every traveller has a visit to a floating market in mind on his first trip to Bangkok. Some will succeed, but the large majority will be discouraged by the distance, the price of the tour and definitely the ludicrously early wake up time... who wants to get up at 5 a.m. while on holiday? But why even bother waking up so early when there are actually more than five floating markets around Bangkok open all day, including a small but very nice one just 12 km from Siam Paragon? You can be there before lunch without having to sacrifice your sleep! Damnoen Saduak has been Thailand's best known floating market for a very long time but it is also the most touristy one... What We Loved: It's huge, lively, full of boats selling food and fruits, and it's colourful - exactly how people imagine a floating market will look like - with the opportunity to capture the perfect photo to show off once back home.
