One of the best and the most clean floating markets I’ve been to in Bangkok. Not too crowded, clean and selected by the selling goods (food and other stuff separated), also good quality products. Nice pleace to eat, small scene with live music and possibility...More

First off, we were over charged and did not realize it. It was 2000 bhat to rent a boat and we paid 4000 bhat. Even 2000 was too much. The water is filthy with litter everywhere. The boat driver takes you to stalls he prefers....More

My wife and I spent 8 days in Bangkok and Phuket, and going on a floating market tour is a MUST. This is an experience you will always remember, especially where you get to feed the fish and see them come out of the water,...More

A trip to Taling Chan Floating Market is worth if anyone is visiting in nearby tourist attractions. Although, Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is the largest one in Thailand. There were lots of stalls for selling souvenirs. Many peoples were cooking on boats. There was very...More

Went to the boat taxi port and got a private boat for the afternoon (3000baht) for two of us. After about a 45 minute trip on the river and through the locks and canals brought us to the market. We had a wonderful time walking...More

We went to the market on Sunday. It is definitely a tourist trap. Everything is over priced. Vendors love to haggle but do not want to lose the sale. It was an experience for sure. The small coconut pancakes made right in front of you...More

Prepare to be amazed that the Thai people have been doing this for centuries. Don’t be afraid to try different things. The papaya was so sweet. We bought spices, not as good or strong as the ones we bought Istanbul though

The market is not too bad but not much of it on the water. However a boat ride around the canals looking at the different houses and waving to people is very uplifting. I do recommend it as an alternative to the floating market of...More

What do you mean by doing a boat cruise without doing bike tour? Can't really understand the purpose of the question. Thanks

I just came back from bangkok. Tailing Chan Floating Market is about 25 minutes from Bangkok city. The market is at the river side, if you expect it is like Amphawa then you will be very disappointed. The boat trip is just to bring the visitor for side seeing the river side and will stop by a temple and orhird farm. Along the way there are many temples and houses. More like a tour that get to know the river side people life. Well, there is also a friendly tour guide explain the scene along...More

How to get to Taling Chan Floating Market by Long Tail? (1 Replies)
I have found out that the market is accessible by air-con bus No. 79 or 83 or even taxi. I would love to know if anyone knows how to organise a long tail boat to get there. Is this possible from say Ta Chang Pier after visiting the Grand Palace? Tommo

It might be possible to get there via Klong Bangkoknoi and Klong Chakpra but only if the boatman is aware of the correct route. Taling Chan is only open at weekends.

Looks fine but I just wonder if your arrival is on day before = saturday (hopefully) or if you arrive in Bangkok on day 1/sunday? You need to calculate some time for jetlag!!
