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, hundreds of them. Also to eat the variety of food and drinks made it so much fun.

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 little tourists in the market during our visit to the area and the journey to the market and around the canals was enjoyable, nice environment.

I came here around 4pm and still most food places and shops was open. I really like this small floating market. Amazing atmosphere, nice people and good activity.

Many food choices and different souvenirs and stuff to buy.

Small Floating Market but absolutely worth a visit and then less than 30 minutes taxi from Bangkok and only 250 baht one-way.

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 through the market and did some shopping for gifts. The beef noodle soup was everything I've ever hoped for eating it in the US for years. The trip back was nice and peaceful as the sun set over the river.

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 from a local vendor were awesome. The coconut ice cream from the vendor right beside the bridge was awesome. Hint : if you see something you like there is a good chance you will see many times again. So be patient. Clothing is not expensive, just make a deal that you feel is fair. Overall worth the visit. We did not eat anything else that day.

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

Take water taxi to last stop, Phanfa Leelard.

Follow Google Maps for the short (5 min) walk to bus stop route 79

Pay the conductor on the bus to Taling Chang Floating Market

From the market there are regular 1 hour boat trips to the temple for 69 Baht. At 9.45am we took a longer boat tour for 99 Baht which stopped at other floating markets.

It was a great day with very little tourists and the journey to the market and around the canals was the best part.

Getting to the market via the water taxi and the bus cost less than $1 per person

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 James Bond fame

We deliberately chose this market as we were sick of tourist trap tours and constant touting.
The shop owners are gentle and respectful. Non meansmeans no and not maybe. So refreshing.
Food was in great variety and prices all noted in English. We ate the seafood and were fine. We took the boat ride. Really peaceful except for the tour guide. I heard from other reviews she was loud but that was kind. Picture high pitched screaming banshee with mouth close to mic causing reverberations. Insist on another guide if you have a low tolerance.

Make sure you go early. The river clogs up with boats pretty quickly and by lunchtime you are completely stalled in more than a few places. The food is good, the shopping is better and learning about this sub-culture from years gone by is fascinating.
