Kwan Riam Floating Market makes a lovely day out in Bangkok, especially if you look to avoid foreign tourists. Easily accessible, the market sits on the San Saeb canal, in an outskirt of the city. Here, you can ride a row boat, enjoy a variety of delicious Thai food, and experience rustic ways of life that you no longer see in the metropolis Bangkok.

Opened in 2012, the market derives its name from a Thai romantic tragedy tale. Kwan and Riam are characters of this non-happy-ending love story whose setting is the location of this market. You can spend all day eating here. You may dine on a boat restaurant moving up and down the canal. Don’t leave the market without trying Thai desserts like tako (a bite-size coconut milk custard atop tiny tapioca balls), or mango and sticky rice.

Apart from the food, there are cultural shows and petting zoo. There are temples on both sides of the canal. You can see Wat Bamphen Nuea Temple and Wat Bang Pheng Tai Temple from the market – worth paying a visit to.
