The Basics

Taling Chan Floating Market, located in Khlong Chak Phra canal, has been open since the 1980s. It's less crowded than other area floating markets, with an authentic local feel. Even if you don't need fresh fish or vegetables, you can try grilled seafood, take a longtail boat tour, or get a foot massage. Visit the weekend market independently, or take a cycling tour of Bangkok’s canal areas, which often include a stop at Taling Chan.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Most of the stalls are on land beside the canals, which is good news if you’re not comfortable on small boats.

  • Bring plenty of cash, as cards aren’t accepted.

  • As this is a less touristy market, few vendors here speak English. Restaurant menus often have pictures so you can point to what you want.
