Featuring open-air bars and restaurants with plenty of live music, Pratunam Floating Night Market is a sweet spot to stop by while you’re on your Bangkok shopping spree. And it’s easily accessible too! Simply catch the BTS (Bangkok’s metro) to ChidLom Station; right across Pratunam Pier, you will see the historic canals of Saen Saep thronging with boats selling an array of wares and Thai fares. Voila; that’s the Pratunam Floating Market!
True to every quintessential Thai bazaar, you’ll be spoiled for choice with your food options. Sip on some light yet fragrant Tom Yum Goong and feast on seafood grilled to perfection onboard a suspended platform. Nibble on Thai comfort food like pad thai with succulent prawns, spicy citrus chicken wing skewers and a lot more. There is something for everyone to satisfy their taste buds after a long day of sightseeing and shopping.
After a filling meal, soak up the lively atmosphere by ordering your favourite cocktail or a pint of Chang beer from the bars that are aplenty, while taking in the colourful sights of the floating market and the thumping beats of the live bands.
The bright decorative lights abound only enhance the ambience and make for the perfect IG-worthy photo backdrop! Needless to say, the next time you’re in the city, complete your Bangkok jaunt with a visit to this buzzing floating night market to experience that Thai night market culture that we know and love.
