  • One Sunday we get up early to go on tour. We climb in a minibus air conditioned for 1 hour and 20 minutes drive from Bangkok to one of the most genuine floating markets of Thailand: Tha Kha, located 70 km southwest of Bangkok. We take place aboard a motorized canoe and go for two hours! The experience is, I think, unique in the world, and reminded me a little bit to the attractions in theme parks... it's fascinating to see the way of life of these people. It remains a market, and friendly traders will present their products with force and sometimes insistence. Small disappointment: further review the same articles as before... At one point, in the heart of the market, it was the "traffic jam on the channel... Fortunately canoe (paddle or motor) drivers are experienced and manage to escape.

  • very small. Peaceful and quiet. Felt authentic, filled with mostly locals and just a few tourists. Took a lovely boat ride around the canals. Old women on boats make delicious Thai food, and everythin...  more »
  • Thailand water listings, large and small, this is one of the views of the light, because it is in the afternoon of the city, the product more people design products, the money will be more hard. In addition, many people sit by the river eating roasted seafood, if not the health of the conditions, you can consider some seafood sitting on the river to appreciate the scenery, night can take a boat to appreciate the fire insects.

  • What a great little local floating market. Meals, fresh fruit and veg, beautiful plants. Check out the orchids then get shocked at how cheap they are. The variety of fresh fruit is amazing, and snacks made from coconut make me want to return, again and again.
  • Very locally floating market. You can find a variety choices of fresh fruits and veggies. Good option of ready-to-eat food selling in the boat too. Walking to the end of the market, there’s a cozy coffee shop for you to have a seat and enjoying the slow life :) The only down side for me is that there’s not much there. The market is small. It’s only take me 30mins total to walk around, take picture, eat and leave.
  • I would say it’s the best floating marketing I ever been in Bangkok! It preserves traditional aspect of culture
  • Best floating market around. Great food and atmosphere. Better than the tourist attractions nearby.
  • Same story as most. Taxi took us there where they were asking for 4000 baht each. We assumed we wouldn't pay anything to visit a floating market. We didn't have that much in cash but were stupid and intimidated so agreed. Then I realized how much this was in our own money. I said to the taxi driver I wanted to go home and he looked dismayed, we'd paid 2500 and I said I want my money back and to return to my hotel (an hour and a half away!). The woman then showed us part of the ticket that said no refund, she dropped the price to 4000 baht for 2 of us when I still wanted to go back to the hotel. Had to endure the trip which was mainly awkward as you stop at stalls to buy cheap looking tat. A bit sad because it's ruined the whole morning. Would not recommend.
