The Bang Nam Pheung Floating Market is a quiet, yet a rich burst of unadulterated Thai culture. Surrounded by vegetation and rural settlements, Bang Nam Pheung has a simple, peaceful charm. The market is mostly grounded by the riverside, while the river is navigable by visitors through boats, where they can choose from the unusual foods, local wares, farm produce and souvenirs on display by its banks.
Scattered all over Thailand across any village with its own river, you will find many Talad Nams or 'floating markets'. Although there are many, Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market happens to be one close to Bangkok, only a few kilometres away. More popular among the local populace than with tourists (who tend to throng to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market) and is quite authentic and quintessentially Thai. Set up only during the weekends, the Chao Phraya River in Bang Nam Phueng village has its markets bustling with local and glocal visitors - both locals and tourists. With a wide variety of sweet and savoury Thai delicacies, exotic foods, handicrafts, souvenirs this market and even potted plant, this market has a lot to offer.
