You can find vendors packed in waterways selling fruits, handicrafts, hats and other goods directly out of their boats. Although it was once a common and practical way to sell, most floating markets today are for more for novelty than practicality. Regardless, it’s a charmingly-unique way to shop for fresh fruits or trinkets to bring home to family and friends and a true Bangkok experience.
