Rangsit Floating Market, Rangsit, Thailand

Having been told this market did not exist, I set out to find it, convinced it did exist. My friend Moo the Taxi driver set off to Rangsit on  Saturday 12th June 2010. Around 09.00 am we finally found it. The directions for finding this can be seen on the first three pictures on this page, showing two road signs and the bridge over the canal to the actual Market.


The first two boats contain cases showing the history and origins of Rangsit Floating Market.


It is open every day from 09.00 to 15.00 hours. The market caters for food, sitting down and eating some of the best Thai food at prices that are so cheap it seems unreal.


We made friends with a couple that owned one of the eating places, husband and wife Kea and Than. We had four different dishes of Thai food, along with beer and water all for 200 Baht ( about £4.30 at the exchange rate then.)


What was  noticeable  was the cleanliness of the boats and food area’s. The canal was also a beautiful backdrop and was also much cleaner than most other rivers or canals that other Floating Markets reside on.


This Market was truly a great place where many Thai owners had pride in, they were so friendly it made a great start to the day. This is a market everyone should try, to sample the Thai way of life, good Thai food and  hospitality from a set of people proud of there Floating Market.


You could after visiting this market spend some time at Dream World, just down the road, and then end up shopping at Future Park, about ten minutes drive away - a great day out in Rangsit.
