2.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
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.

  • We booked the tour directly from the hotel. I woke up at 7 to get to the starting point of the bus, by private car. Halfway, we stopped at a coconut plantation, according to the Guide, but more than anything else was a place with mandatory stop to see a brickyard two fruits into the fire, and dozens of stalls, where obviously we were directed. After the break we got a a square where we took a boat (typical of James Bond) who took us into the heart of the market. Some photos taken and time passed to face requests from all stallholders scattered everywhere. To navigate in the market, you have to pay out of their own pockets, but since the river traffic, we gave up for the limited time available. Half a day for an hour or so scarce in the market. better go there alone These are rooted in the system, and now for wit's ripping off tourists here are top notch!

  • I agree with some of the comments on here that you see the same stuff you would normally see in the regular markets in Bangkok, but you do this for the experience! I enjoyed it. There's not many times...  read more »
