Floating Markets are one of Thailand's most popular attractions and I've visited quite a few over the years. Kwan Riam is a new floating market located just half an hour outside Bangkok and is one of the only markets that has facilities for disabled people so we were able to take my Yai out with us, this is a really great thing for those of us with elderly relatives as there's not many attractions, especially markets, that provide this in Thailand. As Kwan Riam is a new attraction it's not too busy and with mostly Thai people visiting it's a sure sign that the food is good.

Food is the main attraction of any market in Thailand but Kwan Riam has lot's of other fun things to do, my niece loved feeding the animals there and even went on a pony ride, there are temples on both sides of the river to give thanks at, boat rides, traditional Thai dancing and you can even eat "boat noodles" on a boat.

The market is extremely clean and very well kept, the animals were all very healthy looking and they even have Japanese toilets for you to use but most importantly the food is good, like really good, so good we ended up buying seconds (even thirds) to bring home to eat later!

This was my last trip out with the family before I left Thailand and it was such a great day, I was happy that we were able to take my Yai out with us and eat lots of yummy food together and I'm sure when I'm back in Thailand will be visiting Kwan Riam again.

Now the holidays are upon us what's your favourite family activity?
