Alms Round at Kwan Riam Floating Market

Kwan Riam Floating Market

One of the latest riverside markets in Bangkok opened for tourism is the Kwan Riam Floating Market in Miniburi. Unlike other markets, the monks at the temple here hold a religious ceremony from 7:30 a.m. After some chanting they get into their boats and row up and down the canal collecting alms from local people. Although the monks collect alms every day, they only do this by boat at the weekends and public holidays. It’s worth getting up early just to witness this religious ceremony. Afterwards you can enjoy breakfast in the market.
