Bang Nam Pheung is only few kilometres east side of Bangkok but it is not easy to find or to reach without your own transortation. Because of this it has remained relatively low-key and the proximity to Bangkok makes it a great way to step away from the hectic town and step right into village life.
Bang Nam Pheung is located in an unusual loop of the Chao Phraya river nicknamed 'the Green Lung of Bangkok', a surprisingly untouched area clearly visible from the sky and still covered with vegetation despite being so close to town.
If your vision of a floating market is a canal crowded with a fleet of wooden boats, this might not be what you have in mind. A complete contrast to touristy Damnoen Saduak, Bang Nam Pheung is a real local market with a lot of interesting food and sweets to try. Whilst it doesn't offer the usual photo opportunity, it still has a plenty of charm.
