Wang Lang Market stretches along the Chao Phraya River on the Thonburi side, adjacent Siriraj Hospital. It’s one of the city’s busiest markets for people of all ages, and is especially popular among locals who come to do their daily food shopping. There’s far more than groceries, though: the site also has many restaurants offering not only Thai cuisine but also seafood specialities in addition to other Asian and Western cuisines. Beyond food sellers, the market features many apparel vendors selling new as well as second-hand and vintage clothing, along with accessories including shoes and handbags. Prices are very reasonable.
Most shops at Wang Lang Market are open every day from 10.00 am. to 5.00 pm. To get to the market from Novotel Bangkok Silom Road, catch a Chao Phraya express boat at Sathorn Pier to Wang Lang Pier; travel time is approximately 30 minutes.
