Taling Chan Floating Market, Bangkok

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market Shopping
Shop for souvenirs, flowers, and fresh produce at Taling Chan Floating Market during the weekends. You'll have the opportunity to buy delicious grilled shellfish and other edible treats from vendors bobbing up and down in small traditional boats that are packed with appetizing ingredients and basic cooking equipment. A number of stalls and permanent restaurants sit on dry land close to the wharfs, where the boat vendors tie up, and a group of musicians plays traditional Thai music for a few hours each day, adding to the ambience. Combine a trip to the market with a boat tour of the local khlongs (canals) to make the most of your visit. Plan to see Taling Chan Floating Market and other attractions that appeal to you using our Bangkok holiday planner.

  • Over the years it has grown, but it hasn't lost it's character. This is still one of the easiest floating markets to access from Bangkok and remains popular with locals mostly. Always worth a visit, open on weekends only... best in the morning.
  • Took a long boat there (charter one from any pier) Saturday morning around 10am. We enjoyed sampling sticky rice with banana, steamed sweet potato and a omelette like thing stuffed with dried shrimp, bean sprouts and peanuts. Yum! Felt a little less touristy than most places (looked like locals actually go there to eat and buy plants, fresh fruits and veggies etc). Would definitely recommend.
  • In my opinion, this one is pretty small compared to other markets. But it provides proper local Thai food with affordable price. It closes at 5 PM, so do not expect to see the night market here.
  • As a local, I don't feel this is a "wanna be" floating market. it is not too big but good enough where you can find delicious local food. Going early is highly recommended coz of two things will surely happen during the late time - heat and crowd..
  • Great floating market. You can come here by boat tour. Is not a big market but charmy. Good prices and lot of locals. Food here is awesome. You definitely should try coconut ice cream.
