5) Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market

This is the best place in Bangkok where people enjoy the traditional Thai floating market. Visitors can find exotic fruits and vegetables which are fresh and to get here visitors need to rent a boat from the Chang Pier River and the person will take to Noi-Khlong Om-Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market.
