Taling Chan Floating Market, Bangkok

(3.1/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • Taling Chan Floating Market is tiny compare to Damnoen Saduak. We joined the 3 hour boat tour ($99 baht). It stopped at a couple of floating markets so we can eat and buy souvenirs. The first stop is ...  more »

  • 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.
  • I thought this market was great. If you're a tourist and want a true tourist market with only white people then don't come here. Yea it's a bit touristy but not as bad as some of the other attractions. It's small quaint and it's fun to get there on a long boat! You can charter them from all over the place but should talk them down on price!!!
  • Nice boat trip to get there, hopped on near the Great Palace, and return to the same pier. Small yet charismatic floating market, good Thai food and ambience
  • Never try to go there at a time when there's no market. We went there when there were no people selling anything and getting back was hard. We had to Uber our way back to the city. Nice small floating market with a few sellers when the market is setup
  • Little out of the way and not near anything else. Only a few vendors and mostly food. Last boat ride departs at 4pm should you choose to go!
