Kwan Riam Floating Market

Posted On:   |   Last Updated:   |   Posted in

Kwan Riam Floating Market  is one of the central floating markets of Bangkok, Thailand. It located between Soi Seri Thai 60 and Soi Ramkhamhaeng 187.

The name of the market “Kwan Riam” comes from the name of main characters in Thai romance-drama novel titled Phlae Kao. Khwan and Riam love each other but were obstructed by their parent.

Kwan Riam Floating Market open Saturday and Sunday and on public holidays from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. It is divided into two parts by two temples, Wat Bamphen Nuea and Wat Bang Pheng Tai. In my opinion, the  thing worth going for is the early morning alms giving ceremony start from 7.30 a.m. – 8 am. This is quite an interesting experience

There is a wide range of traditional food available, such as classic Boat noodles, Thai desserts and Isan food. Market women cook food on the little boats. There is also a water buffalo and rice farmer. People often photograph and ride the water buffalo. The market has good views of Khlong Saen Saep.

Though not a true floating market in the strictest sense, it is nonetheless a really fun weekend/holiday place that is within Bangkok yet worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city. I believe you will find it a charming of traditional and modern Thailand.

Another place I decided to come  on Sunday. People are not that much, but the weather is quite hot. By the way, the place is very beautiful. I would recommend Kwan Riam Floating Market to anyone all ages! it is an experience you won’t forget.
