Floating Markets

Bangkok and its surrounds are home to an extensive array of canal systems that have been ingeniously exploited by the local communities with unique floating markets. Vendors set up their stalls on boats and freely navigate through the canals, stopping and selling their commodities to customers on the banks – special attractions not to be missed during a visit to Bangkok.

Taling Chan

Located a short drive away from Pathumwan Princess, Taling Chang is a charming weekend market that specializes in selling local produce and delectable food items from boats.

Khlong Lat Mayom

Located not far from Taling Chan, just a few kilometers outside Bangkok, this market has both boat stalls and riverside shops, selling an enticing array of local delicacies, tropical fruit and more.


Located approximately 80 kilometers outside Bangkok, Thailand, Amphawa is the most authentic of local floating markets, and is a magnet for Bangkok residents, with food stalls and charming wooden shops selling an array of souvenirs.

Damnoen Saduak

Packed with stalls and eateries alongside and on the canal, Damnoen Saduak in Ratchaburi province is Thailand’s most famous floating market, and is always busy with locals and tourists alike.
