Catagorize: Floating Market
Contact: on the bank of Bang Pramung Canal in front of Wat Bang Pramung, Amphoe Krok Phra, Nakhon Sawan Tel. 0 5629 1006
This charming floating market, a more common sight in the olden days, is adjacent to a local temple, Wat Bang Pramung, on the Bang Pramung Canal. Boats laden with agricultural goods and foods glide along the still water to peddle their wares every weekend, from 7.00 am – 4.00 pm.
Tours of the canal, boats and water bicycles, and a nearby orchid farm offer additional delights – and at the end of the day, visitors can enjoy a traditional Thai massage at the market.
To get there, take the Nakhon Sawan-Krok Phra road for around nine kilometers, then turn right for about seven kilometers into Wat Bang Pramung. The total distance from the city is around 16 kilometers.
