Taling Chan Floating Market, Bangkok

(2.2/5 based on 900+ 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. Plan to see Taling Chan Floating Market and other attractions that appeal to you using our Bangkok holiday planner.
