A new floating market near Bangkok located at Tambon Bang Nampheung, Phra Pradaeng District. It originated under the cooperation between the Bang Nampheung Subdistrict Administration Organization and local community in an attempt to release their superabundant crops and, as a consequence, create employment and income to the community. The charm of this floating market is the canalside lifestyle of the community whose members are mostly Thai – Mon.
Local products and famous food such as fish-scale flowers, herbal joss sticks, Hoi Thot (fried mussel pancake), Khanom Khrok or mortar-toasted pastry, mango, etc. are also offered on sale. A rowing boat for rent is available at 20 Baht each. A bicycle trek to experience the local lifestyle and visit the fruit orchards is also provided with a bicycle for rent available at 30 Baht each. Bang Namphueng Floating Market is open only on Saturdays and Sundays during 8.00 a.m. – 2.00 p.m. For more information, please contact Chief of the Bang Namphueng Subdistrict Administration Organization at Tel. 0 1171 4930 or Bang Namphueng Subdistrict Administration Organization Office at Tel. 0 2819 6762.
