Floating market worth a visit

Hi Guys,

I'll be staying with my family at Seasons hotel in Ramkhamheng precinct.

Which is the nearest floating market which is worth a visit ?

I will be able to allocate only 3rd January morning for this activity. I read that some floating markets are open only on weekends but unfortunately this is a weekday.

The weekend floating markets are close enough for a morning visit.

The others are too far for such a short period of time.

Oh..but January 3rd is a Wednesday. No market will be open then right ? I can spare 4 hours in total for the trip.

You will find nothing there to eat or buy that you cannot find at countless retail outlets (shops/markets etc) all over Bangkok. The floating markets are tourist traps.

Oh..I didn't know about that. Better to avoid it then when time is short. Thanks for the tip Khunbill :)

Kartik, this is just my view, before you make your decision wait a while, you may receive opposite views.

Ya but the way I see it, the hotel is too far from any of the good floating markets and it's also a weekday. So there doesnt seem to be any option but to give it a miss. If anyone else has any other idea, please let me know.

Yes, there are markets open on a Wednesday; but much too far away/impossible for a 4 hour journey.

Thanks for the info ctm7944 :) but I guess we 'll give it a miss. Our flight is on Wednesday night and we have allocated time for the pattaya night market. Floating markets all seem too far.

Do you mean Patpong, Pattaya would not be nearby.
