Bustling Stalls at Wang Lang Siriraj Market

Wang Lang Siriraj Market is a small yet comprehensive snapshot of what larger markets offer. From clothes to fruits and vegetables, handcrafted items to products made in China, it has a bit of everything.

Beyond this eclectic mix, the small stalls offering typical Thai dishes are sure to delight food lovers. You can savor classics such as Pad Thai, Som Tum (green papaya salad), Moo Ping (grilled pork skewers), Khao Niew Ma Muang (mango sticky rice), as well as Chinese Dimsums, Japanese Sushis, and Korean Bibimbaps.

Prime Location Along the Chao Phraya River

The great advantage of Wang Lang Siriraj Market is its prime location. Situated right next to the Chao Phraya River, it is adjacent to the Prannok Pier.

Getting there is easy: either via public boats or the ferry connecting to Tha Chang (The Grand Palace).

Another positive aspect of its location: the terraces. Although few in number, some restaurants have terraces with direct views of the river, allowing customers to enjoy natural air conditioning.
