Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market

in Bang Kruai district of Nonthaburi province, can be reached by boat from Tha Chang Pier near the Grand Palace.

Probably the easiest to get to in terms of distance from Bangkok, Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market is probably the most difficult to attend for visitors due to its opening hours - 04:00 and 07:00. Sellers bring natural goods (vegetables, etc.) and it is also possible to see monks rowing boats to collect alms! Not at all commercialised, this is probably one of the few places you can see such a traditional way of life around Bangkok.

The market opens between 04:00 and 07:00, times vary on this market some say it starts 05.00 am until around midday

How to get there: Probably the easiest way to get there is by boat down the river. You will arrive in Bang Kruai and from there it’s a 10-minute boat journey to the market. There are a limited number of tours so otherwise a taxi might be your best bet. At that hour in the morning, chasing around after buses is not recommended!

A ferry from Wat Chalo Pier, Amphoe Bang Kruai would take 45 minutes to the floating market. The boat leaves every 15 minutes from 05.00-20.00 hrs.The fee is 5 Baht. - Take a ferry from Nonthaburi Pier (Phibun Songkhram II) for 45 minutes. A chartered boat takes only half an hour at the cost of 300 Baht. - Rent a boat from Chang Pier, Bangkok to Bangkok Noi-Khlong Om-Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market. The trip takes one hour at the cost of 300 Baht.

 

Bang Ramat Floating Market.

 

A major attraction, with a pleasant and shaded atmosphere, is by a canal on Bang Ramat road, in the Bang Ramat section of Taling Chan. Although this relatively-new floating market is not frequently visited by boats, it does have many shop stalls, a small boat museum, several walking paths (around the market), small restroom facilities, a few outdoor restaurants, and a variety of foods and merchandise for sale. Occasionally, it does feature live outdoor performances by local children and/or organizations. It is only open on Sundays and easily accessible (and used as a prolonged stopover) on some tourist tour boats from Taling Chan Floating Market
