We took a cab to this floating market and it's the nearest and not too crowded. Its rather small compare to Damnoen Saduak. There's lot of local delicacies to try out. We took river cruise and only cost 60 baht per pax. Overall it was a great experience. There's many cabs outside the market but beware some of them will... More

Climb aboard your gondola, and vendors solicit your business. It have me a great idea of the wares for tourists, but I only sampled the food--yummy. My Thailand visit was ALL about the food. Such a different venue for your shopping pleasure.

This is a nice floating market. Basically a couple of pontons were smaller boats lay along side were the food is prepared. It is well organized and very cheap. Great starting point for a klong tour.

Taling Chan is a weekend floating market which you get to by boat along part of the chaophraya river. This is a quaint little market that sells many great and inexpensive trinkets. You can also buy food which smells and tastes amazing!! No entry fee and not expensive at all. The market is not too crowded and is fairly small... More

It's just a small market and it is not as crowded as other ones. The boat ride along the houses seems not interesting!

This is a small market / floating food stalls not too far away from the city & not too crowded. If you're in Central Bangkok, it should cost you no more than THB150 to get there by metered taxi. Don't expect too much, the food stalls are good, not too much else besides that! Do try the canal (Krung) tour... More

The market is small and there's not much variety. Also, with the tours, you only get 30 mins to spend at the market. You'd get a much nicer view of the canal and markets elsewhere in the country. To top the bad experience, we were scammed by the company who sold us tickets to the market. A better option may... More

I and my family visited the place last December 2016 but not so nice as expected ...not so many tourist and only one floating boat with goods come to our boat ... and be careful in buying goods cause they don't give you a change for your money and better to give exact amount and not to argue with then...

First time in Bangkok and thought we were booking a traditional floating market, what we got was a dirty river, with boats pushing you past souvenir shops one after the other. For 3000 Baht, dont even bother. Was very disappointing and the driver assured us this was the tour we wanted but it definitely was not.
