Monks Collecting Alms by Boat

One of my favourite floating markets in Bangkok is Kwan Riam Floating Market in Minburi. This is only open at the weekend and during public holidays. If you go early at about 7:30 a.m. you will be able to see monks come out from the local temple by boat and collect alms from local people. This is a charming practice that is not seen very often these days. Certainly it isn’t something that regular tourists would see. Another place that does this is Amphawa Floating Market.

    I not only had the privilege of seeing this, but also participating. We stayed at a homestay in Amphawa last year and the monks were traversing the river by boat collecting alms.
