Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market

Khlong Lat Mayom is one of the three floating markets located close to Bangkok. Khlong Lat Mayom is nothing like the huge touristy Damnoen Saduak or the crowded Amphawa but really has the charm and authenticity of a local market and you might be one of the only foreigners around. Everybody love floating markets - Thai and tourists alike - you just have to see how locals flock to the place on weekends! Local market culture has deep roots in Thai daily life and eating out is not a special event as it is in western culture: it’s fun, cheap and casual, and Thai food has so many variations it can be a travelling theme on its own. Just like the two other markets around Bangkok, the definition of ’floating market’ is a bit stretched, the place being in fact more of a riverside market. The canal here is very narrow and only few boats are parked all alongside the riverbank and below a low bridge, cooking for customers who sit at low tables all along the water. Eating is always the highlight of a floating market visit, sitting on a little wooden stool not higher than 10 cm and ordering a dish cooked on a tiny wooden boat anchored just next to your table is such a fun and exotic experience! Don’t be shy and try some of the dishes you are not familiar with... if you don’t know what it is, just point at your neighbour’s plate: noodle soups, Pad Thai, Kanom Jeen (cold rice vermicellis) or Hoi Tod (oyster omelet) for 20 to 30 baht per plate. The drinks are usually sold by another person walking around.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Taling Chan Floating Market

Located just outside of Bangkok on the access road to Khlong Bangkok Noi, Taling Chan looks like any other fresh food market busy with produce vendors from nearby farms. But the twist emerges at the canal where several floating docks serve as informal dining rooms and the kitchens are boats tethered to the docks.
