Hi,

If you are referring to the Damneon Saduak floating market it is some way out of Bangkok as Dodger suggests. The best way to get there is to arrange a tour through hotel in Bangkok. Half/One day tours are commonplace.

Mahanakorn Floating Market is about 5 kilometers away from Suvarnabhumi. It's a completely manufactured "market" attraction

Ya, trying to reduce the temples and add this floating market: Anyone have been here?

Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market

Perhaps the best choice to enjoy a traditional Thai floating market without the touristy push is Bang Khu Wiang. Monks arrive by boat in early morning on their daily 'tak baat' (alms round), and a variety of farm - fresh produce is offered.

Opening Hours: 04:00 - 07:00 (every day)

How to get there: One option is to rent a boat from Chang Pier (in Bangkok), and ask to be taken to Noi-Khlong Om-Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market. A cheaper option is to catch a boat from Wat Chalo Pier for a 45-minute ride to Bang Kruai (5 baht), which runs every 15 minutes from 05:00 - 20:00. From there it is a 10-minute boat ride to the market. If boats don't suit you, no worries as taxis and tuk-tuks are available for hire at the market.
