A relatively new floating market near Bangkok is Bang Nampheung Floating Market in Samut Prakan Province. It is built along a canal that flows into the Chao Phraya River. It is a good place to buy food and local handicraft. You can also rent out boats to go for a paddle on the canal. It is a weekend market that closes by mid-afternoon. Best to go early to avoid the crowds.
How To Get There: If you are not driving, there are two ways to go by boat. Take Skytrain to BTS Bang Na and then walk back towards the intersection. Turn left here and you will find songtaews to take you to the end of the road where there is a pier at Wat Bang Na Nok. Four Baht to cross and then a 10 Baht motorcycle ride to the market. If it is easier for you to get to the pier at Khlong Toei, then cross here for five Baht and then a 50 Baht motorcycle ride to the market.
