Aside from temples, food, night markets, Bangkok is also known for its famous floating markets. And if you haven't seen one yet, you can go to this link---> Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. It is a nice experience to go on an actual floating market tour but if you are pressed for time or not in the mood to go to the outskirts of Bangkok, then I suggest SOOK Siam.
SOOK Siam is easily accessible via BTS Skytrain, or simply hop on to a taxi or tuktuk (depends on where you're coming from though). Or via Grab car, our preferred mode of transportation in Bangkok.
If you're wondering where SOOK Siam is, it is at the posh ICONSIAM Mall in Bangkok.
Luckily, the hotel where we stayed at is walking distance to the pier and there's a free boat that goes to ICONSIAM.
SOOK Siam highlights the rich and diverse culture of Thailand's different regions through its food offerings such savory dishes and regional delicacies.
Aside from the numerous restaurants around SOOK Siam, there are also many vendors around the "floating market." You can order anywhere then look for available tables or benches around the market area.
Or you can opt to dine at the tables on the second floor.
There are also stores selling herbal medicines, balms, ointments, soaps, etc.
It is such a nice experience to visit SOOK Siam and dine here. Are you curious about what we ate? Stay tuned!
This is the pier of ICONSIAM. Just before the main entrance of the mall are the "dancing" fountains. That time we went there, the fountains were playing Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. Very nice.
