Located in Bang Krachao, Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market offers a local vibe where most of the visitors are people from the local communities as well as Thai people in general. The market hasn't been as much advertised to foreigners as other markets like Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa despite its opening since 2004. Being surrounded by a residential neighborhood and located along a small canal, visitors can truly feel the unique lifestyle in Bang Nam Phueng.
Visitors can rent a canoe by the side of the market to explore the bigger parts of the canal. It will allow you to see a vivid rainforest as well as local houses along the canal. Bang Nam Phueng also offers art and music activities which make it enjoyable for both tourists and family. Children can enjoy painting plaster figures in the shape of their favorite cartoon characters. Parents and adults can enjoy local live concerts and music playing or simply dive into shopping among various choices of products.
Like all floating markets, Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market is famous for its food. There are many types of food in different forms including fresh vegetables, meat, seafood, dried shrimps, ready-to-eat dishes, and fruits. One of the most famous products, though, is mango. Seasonal tropical fruits are available in all different seasons such as rambutan, durian, rose apple, and mangosteen.
Bang Nam Phueng is a rather small floating market compared to most. But it is indispensable especially when you already visit Bang Krachao. Most visitors complete their bike tour with a stop to this market. Despite the size and the lack of familiar look of a floating market, it does provide a special vibe and an alternative way to see Thai markets.
Tips: Do not miss out on the traditional wooden house located right by the side of the canal!
