Tha Kha Floating Market Tours and Activities

star-4.5
189 Reviews

The Tha Kha Floating Market offers a peaceful respite from the crowds of Bangkok and the throng of tourists attracted to the larger floating markets closer to the capital. The market takes place each weekend in a tranquil, rural setting amid the canals and fruit plantations of the Samut Songkhram province.

Among the rural scenes and local traditions, visitors to Tha Kha will find locals punting along the waterways in wooden boats filled with fragrant flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, colorful spices, and dried fish. Despite being only 10 kilometers from the larger and more famous Amphawa Floating Market, this is a wholly relaxing affair, where you can get an insight into rural village life and drift along the sugar-palm-lined waterways with a friendly local guide.

Tour to Tha Kha Floating Market and Umbrella Market

Tour to Tha Kha Floating Market and Umbrella Market

star-5
1
Come with me on this trip to Samut Songkhram, and you'll not only see 1, but 2 iconic markets of Thailand in one day! Also, you'll get to visit Wat Bang Kung, one of the most unique temples in the area. We'll start the trip by picking you up from your hotel in Bangkok, and we'll head to Maeklong Railway Market first. Here, you'll see vendors selling fresh produce right by the train tracks and packing hurriedly their goods to make way for the train, only to resume their services after the trains had left. Next, we'll go to Tha Kha Floating market, one of the more "local" floating markets in the area with not many tourists. Ride the paddle boat along the canal to see the "real" local life. Best of all, we'll learn how to make coconut sugar the traditional way! After having lunch, we'll visit Wat Bang Kung together to see the one-of-a-kind ordination hall. Believe it or not, the ordination hall is covered within the Banyan and Bodhi Tree!

Thaka - Thailand's most authentic Floating Market

Thaka - Thailand's most authentic Floating Market

Of the many floating markets in Thailand, Thaka is perhaps the most 'authentic' version that there is. Vastly different than the neighbouring floating markets at Damnern Saduak and Amphawa, Thaka is not usually on the maps of most tourists. It could be considered as the last of its kind and it would be a wise decision to visit before it too welcomes mass tourist numbers. This quaint, laidback floating market is still fully operational. Just as they have been doing for years, the locals buy and sell fruits, meats, fish and more from their floating wooden sampan in a very relaxed, old-world vibe. Nearby is a coconut plantation where the farmer makes palm sugar the traditional, old fashioned way. Another stop on this tour will be at Wat Bang Kung, a century's old temple that has been surrounded by the roots of a massive Banyan Tree. The tour will finish off with a lunch break at an open-air restaurant which is right on the side of the Mae Kong River and enjoys the river breeze.

Sights In Samut Songkhram & Kanchanaburi Provinces

Sights In Samut Songkhram & Kanchanaburi Provinces

This full day Private tour with English speaking Guide takes you just beyond the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to see a charming, authentic floating market in Samut Songkhram province followed by Kanchanaburi's World War II sites, most notably the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai, plus nearby Khmer temple ruins which date back many centuries. Leave from your centrally located Bangkok hotel and travel out of the city, eventually passing coconut plantations to reach Thaka Floating Market. Having explored this market, largely hidden away from western tourists, move to locations with a tragic past where you can reflect, namely the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and JEATH War Museum, before catching a long-tail speedboat to eat near the town's infamous bridge. Walk across the Bridge over the River Kwai then a drive of approximately 30 minutes will take you to Prasat Singh Historical Park and its Khmer temple ruins of the 13th and 14th centuries.
