The best floating market in Bangkok
Oct 2020
There are several floating markets in Bangkok, but I recommend this place because of its location and well-organized. Beautiful old-day atmosphere.

Having a bunch of handmade stuff, plenty of local foods & desserts and lovely boat tour activity.

A long-tailed boat tour will take about 90 mins (round trip). The ticket price is around 100 baht/person.

Go early to bet the heat & Crowds! Worth the trip!
Dec 2019
We woke up early on Saturday Morning and were in our Grab Ride(app) by 9am heading to the Khlong Lat Mayom Floating market. We were there in about 20mins how traffic was very quiet and on the boat by 9:30am which was the first boat tour. There is a few different companies doing Canal/floating market boat tours watch our pricing. Some people paid much more for the exact same. there were 4 of us and one other group of 3 people on our boat. Was very quiet.

The boat tour was about 1.5 hour. 2 stops- orchid farm and small village market plus some much beauty in-between 40baht a person. I thought it would have been more of the floating markets you see in pictures. It is much much different. There is a small section that is the market with a few people in boats most of it was on land. The small village was also a market but on land. The village market had a small temple and some local vendors selling there stuff. it was very quiet as well. which was really nice. As we were leaving the market other boats were just showing up and they were crammed full. So glad we went early! We had about 30 mins at the village market. The Orchid farm was beautiful and smelled amazing but really you can't buy anything to take home. So seemed a bit pointless.
We passed so many boats again just crammed full. Once back we shopped and ate at the market. We left around noon and the Grab Ride back was 40 mins because traffic was so heavy.
Use Grab app so you know the fares.

A highlight of our trip
Feb 2020
We took a train and then a taxi ride to the Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market. Whilst it was busy, there were no queues for a ride on the canal boat. We were told that the boat ride would be for about an hour. In reality, it was about 1 1/4 hours, which was even better! The boat ride was good value for money with a couple of short stops along the way. It was great to see life along the edge of the canal along the way and observe the wonderful charasmatic stall vendors.

We had a wander around the market, which was a predominently food market and picked up various foods for lunch from the stalls. All was delicious! Most visitors appeared to be locals rather than tourists.

We were there for about 4 hours.

To be recommended.

If are keen to see floating markets

Be there earlier to bet the crowd special during weekends. The ride cost 100 bht.is not so big but enough to find every food you are looking for and other craft presents. The trip on the boat is an experience (water is dirty crowded of fishes). But if you don't have many days in Bangkok than you can skip this visit.

spent 5 hours there, enjoyed it!

It's close to the city compared to other FM's. Took BTS fr Surasak to Bang Wa, then got a GRAB there. It's unique, not touristy as locals go there to eat & buy things (we went on a Saturday). Lots of stalls to choose from. Took the long tail boat for 100 B, ride was about 1 hour, visited a temple & orchid farm. It's worth going there to experience what is a floating market. There are also many paths to walk around.

Not really a floating market
Jan 2020 • Family
It’s a real life market on solid ground built along a river system that passes through homes of locals.

Took a longboat ride for100baht per person to get to an orchid farm which was not too interesting but the journey itself took us to see how the locals live beside the river, with many having boats to get around as well.

The market itself seems quite big but we did not have enough time to fully explore. Lots of food to try out. Had the salt crusted fish which was good with very tender meat. Avoid the skin which is very salty

Tourist trap but a check off the list.
Jul 2019
Floating markets are all tourist traps now, but they are a to do when around BKK. Spend a morning but not all day. Get the boat tour done before the heat is intense. Have some fruit, eat a plate of locally cooked thai food, get a souvenir and never go back. If you want to experience a real market there are plenty in BKK that offer the sounds and smells for real. These places exist just for photos and the very local economy.

Khlong floating market is one of the most popular floating markets of Bangkok. We reached there by cab. As you approach the place the traffic gets denser so you can drop down a little ahead and walk some distance.
Once you reach there it’s difficult to find the place to get a boat. A little help from locals should be able to guide you to the boat ride. The ride is around an hour and a half. They take you through the narrow canals in a Long boat with around 12 people in one. The boat stops at the market where you can see various vendors selling food items off their boats in the canal. It also stops at an orchid nursery. There are nice plants and some garden decor stuff that you can buy from here as souvenirs. It’s really hot during the day time so it would be advisable to wear lot of sunscreen as well as carry along a scarf with you to cover in the boat. Don’t try to put your hands in the canal water as the water contains dangerous animals like Monitor lizard. There are options of some sea food available at the market but it would be good to carry along if you are a vegetarian. The ticket is not very expensive compared to other visiting points of the city.
